Donald Trump's former campaign manager Corey Lewandowski said New York Times executive editor, Dean Baquet, "should be in jail" for publishing portions of tax returns belonging to the president-elect during the campaign.

Lewandowski, who served as Trump's first campaign manager, has been eyed for a possible role in the White House or the Republican National Committee, Politico reports. His latest comments came during an appearance at Harvard University.

Lewandowski had said previously he would like Trump to sue The Times "into oblivion" for printing several pages of his 1995 tax returns, according to the website.

Those forms reported Trump lost nearly $1 billion — more than enough to allow him to avoid paying federal income taxes for 18 years as a result, Politico reports.

"We had one of the top people at The New York Times come to Harvard University (in September) and say, 'I'm willing to go to jail to get a copy of Donald Trump's taxes so I can publish them.'

"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?" Lewandowski asked.
"It's egregious. He should be in jail."

Asked to respond to Lewandowski's comments, a spokeswoman for the Times referred reporters to a story the paper ran in October detailing the problems Trump would have if he tried to sue, The Hill reports.
