Corey Lewandowski Calls For Imprisoning Editor Of New York Times For Publishing Trump’s 1995 Tax Return

Politico reports:

Corey Lewandowski, Donald Trump’s first campaign manager, said Thursday that New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet “should be in jail” because the newspaper published parts of the president-elect’s tax returns during the race.

Lewandowski, who has been floated for a possible role in the White House or the Republican National Committee, had previously said he hoped Trump would sue the Times “into oblivion” for publishing several pages of his 1995 tax returns, which reported a loss of nearly $1 billion — enough that he could have avoided paying federal income taxes for 18 years as a result.

But Lewandowski’s comments Thursday, made at a Harvard University conference that gathered campaign officials from both parties for a post-mortem of the presidential race, are a step up. They now carry the weight of coming from an informal adviser and possible future employee of the next president, who already faces criticism for regularly disparaging the press and taking few questions from reporters.
