Donald Trump is not exactly turning over a new page in the new year. He didn’t make it two days into 2018 before calling for a political opponent to be jailed.
Yes, that’s the man whose inner circle is being indicted one by one as part of an investigation into his campaign’s ties to Russian election hackers, calling for his former opponent’s top aide to be jailed for lax email security practices that have been thoroughly investigated already.
And check out that kicker: “Also on Comey & others.” Trump can’t even keep himself to wishing for one political prisoner at a time. His imagination is busy populating an entire prison with people who’ve dared to oppose him, stand up to him or make him look bad.
