Paul Krugman: If Trump Isn’t Jailed, ‘Thousands Of Journalists’ Will ‘End Up In Prison Camps’I

Peak Trump Derangement Syndrome hysteria in full swing among mainstream media

Economist and New York Times op-ed columnist Paul Krugman suggested Friday evening that “thousands of journalists” will end up imprisoned because of the administration or President Donald Trump goes to jail.

A formal impeachment inquiry was launched Tuesday after news that Trump had asked Ukrainian officials to look into Vice President Joe Biden’s son Hunter regarding business dealings in the country. The transcript of this phone call was held in a special computer system for sensitive calls, according to the NYT.

The White House restricted access to other phone calls between Trump and foreign leaders, CNN reported Friday evening. Following this news, Krugman tweeted that there seemed to be “two possible outcomes.”

“Trump and a number of others end up in jail, or thousands of journalists end up in prison camps,” Krugman, a Nobel Prize winner, suggested.

Krugman did not follow up his tweet with reasons as to how “thousands of journalists” would become imprisoned if Trump doesn’t spend time behind bars.

Turkey, China and Egypt are responsible for more than half of all jailed journalists, a 2018 Forbes article reported. The report is based on data collected from the Committee to Protect Journalists, which noted that zero journalists were jailed in the U.S.

Trump spoke on the phone to Russian President Vladimir Putin and Saudi Arabian Prince Mohammad Bin Salman Al Saud, CNN host Erin Burnett said Friday on “Erin Burnett OutFront.”

“We have learned of more Trump phone calls that the White House tried to keep secret,” she said. “CNN learning this hour the White House also tried to limit access to President Trump’s conversations with two controversial dictators.”

She added that this news could back up the whistleblower’s complaint, which was released to the public Thursday and alleged that presidential transcripts were placed more than once into a “codeword-level system.”

Krugman wrote an opinion piece Thursday titled “Impeaching Trump Is Good for the Economy.” He suggested impeachment “will slow down the administration’s war on competence,” adding that “the Nixon administration was a paragon of good government” compared to the Trump administration.

  1. I don’t want these political hacks hiding behind press credentials jailed. I want them hung for their participation in this attempted coup against Trump. This can only end with the executions of the DNC, RINO, Deep State and Media conspirators. And this is also why they are attempting to undermine the 2nd Amendment.

  2. If the reporters would listen on on every head of state phone call then the foreign heads of states would not take any of sa calls as there would be no security on the phone !! So the whitehouse fortunately sing a security e location for such calls is SOP ( standard operating protocol ) for you ignorant reporters and uneducated dumbucrat house Rep’s members !!!

  3. Methinks Paul Krugman may be among those “journalists” who will “end up in Prison Camps” if “Trump isn’t jailed”. Sorry Paul, but you’re beginning to look the part.
