Trump Wants Reporters Behind Bars

While many focus on the NY Times blockbuster story that President Trump wanted then FBI Director James Comey to back off on investigating Micheal Flynn, there was another nugget that had Journalists shaking their head. 

In the Times story, Comey said that while, "Alone in the Oval Office, Mr. Trump began the discussion by condemning leaks to the news media, saying that Mr. Comey should consider putting reporters in prison for publishing classified information, according to one of Mr. Comey's associates..."

It was like President Trump is using Vladimir Putin's playbook. The President of the United States wants the FBI to jail Journalists for doing their job. 

In these remarks are true, this could be the most dangerous line the President has ever crossed. This is the point where congress needs to step in and investigate. 

This is a threat to anyone that covers news for a living and more importantly, this is a threat to the democracy  of the United States of America.
