'Trump has declared war': journalists denounce any attack on press freedom
President’s apparent suggestion that the FBI should ‘consider putting reporters in prison’ prompts call to action from journalists increasingly under attack
By Joanna Walters

President Donald Trump’s apparent suggestion that the FBI should “consider putting reporters in prison” has been decried as a dangerous new assault on press freedom and prompted a call to action by American journalists who have been jailed in the US for their work.

Among those who criticised the reported comments are journalist Brian Karem, who spent two weeks in jail in Texas in 1990 for refusing to give up a source and who told the Guardian they were “deeply concerning”.

The president’s comments are said to have come amid this week’s revelations that Trump reportedly asked James Comey, when he was director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, to drop its investigation into fired national security adviser Mike Flynn and his connections to Russia.
