Lewandowski: NY Times editor should be in jail
Corey Lewandowski says Dean Baquet “should be in jail” for publishing portions of Trump’s tax returns.
President-elect Donald Trump’s former campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, on Thursday said that Dean Baquet, editor of The New York Times, “should be in jail” for publishing portions of the president-elect’s tax returns.
“We had one of the top people at The New York Times come to Harvard University and say, ‘I’m willing to go to jail to get a copy of Donald Trump’s taxes so I can publish them,’ “ Lewandowski said at a Harvard University panel discussion, as reported by Politico.
“Dean Baquet came here and offered to go to jail — you’re telling me, he’s willing to commit a felony on a private citizen to post his taxes, and there isn’t enough scrutiny on the Trump campaign and his business dealings and his taxes?” “It’s egregious,” Lewandowski continued. “He should be in jail.”
