Schemes are hatched

More damning information from The New York Times. We now learn Trump cleared the room before his fateful conversation on Flynn and the President's desire to jail journalists for publishing leaked information.
"Mr. Comey had been in the Oval Office that day with other senior national security officials for a terrorism threat briefing. When the meeting ended, Mr. Trump told those present — including Mr. Pence and Attorney General Jeff Sessions — to leave the room except for Mr. Comey.
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.
Mr. Trump then turned the discussion to Mr. Flynn."
Here's a first hand account from Times reporter Michael Schmidt.
