The tables have turned

This Democratic congressman just suggested locking President Trump up

Democratic Rep. Hakeem Jeffries (N.Y.) just used Trump supporters' favorite line against Hillary Clinton against President Trump. In a tweet Thursday night, Jeffries linked to a New York Times story detailing Trump's alleged efforts to get FBI Director James Comey — whom Trump unceremoniously fired Tuesday — to swear his loyalty, which Jeffries pointed to as "evidence of Trump's effort to obstruct justice."

Jeffries followed that up with a very pointed question:

Trump — who often basked in chants of "Lock her up!" at his rallies — argued that Clinton should serve prison time because of her use of a private email server during her tenure as secretary of state.

Jeffries, among other Democrats, is enraged by Trump's abrupt firing of Comey amid an FBI investigation into Trump's ties to Russia. Also on Thursday night, Democratic Rep. Jared Huffman (Calif.) tweeted that "impeachment will happen" if a "handful of Republicans in Congress join Dems to put country above party."
