CNN's Jim Acosta's press pass temporarily returned by judge

CNN's Jim Acosta's press pass temporarily returned by judge

You can't take three questions and four questions.

The White House may have an interest in controlling its press facility, the judge noted, but he said a violation of constitutional rights is contrary to the public interest. Videos of the encounter show Acosta pulling back as the staffer moved to take the microphone at the press conference.

The ruling forces the White House press office to temporarily return Mr Acosta's "hard pass", the credential that allows reporters easy access to the White House and other presidential events.

US District Court Judge Timothy Kelly, an appointee of the president, announced his decision in Washington on Friday. Consider that every time Trump and Sanders decide not to hold a press briefing, which is often, it amounts to canceling everyone's press pass (or at least nullifying the goal of a press pass) for that day - and yet the world continues to turn, White House reporters continue to file stories about what their sources are hearing, CNN continues to criticize Trump, etc. He did not, however, decide whether or not the First Amendment had been violated.

"There must be decorum at the White House", she added.

He said the White House position on that conduct was clear and not discriminatory. But the judge said those "belated efforts were hardly sufficient to satisfy due process".

The judge's order says that the pass must be reinstated as a CNN lawsuit against Donald Trump continues. Our honest thanks to all who have supported not just CNN, but a free, strong and independent American press."Acosta added: "I just want to thank all my colleagues in the press who supported me this week".

In oral arguments before the judge earlier this week, Deputy Assistant Attorney General James Burnham challenged the various assertions against the administration point by point.

"Let's go back to work", Acosta said.

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shortly later confirmed the White House will "temporarily reinstate" the press pass, but she promised new rules to ensure "orderly" news conferences.

The judge also cited the "irreparable harm" to Acosta.

However, Judge Kelly warned on Friday that the battle for CNN was not over. The White House's blatant double standards for reporters and for the president himself are an enduring shame for the country.

The White House revoked Acosta's credentials last week in an escalation of the Republican president's attacks on the news media, which he has dubbed the "enemy of the people".

The assertions drew a rebuttal from CNN's lawyer, Boutrous, who described the ban on the reporter as arbitrary, capricious and unprecedented.

After the judge´s ruling, the White House Correspondents´ Association president, Olivier Knox, cheered a decision that "made it clear that the White House can not arbitrarily revoke a White House press pass". Tellingly, Trump´s most friendly outlet, Fox News, joined the suit calling for Acosta´s pass to be returned. He argued that the White House was both the president's residence and workspace and that no one besides the president had the legal right to enter the grounds. "BUT he then said when the President invites in some reporters but excludes others the First Amendment comes into play".

The case had turned into a Rorschach test for Americans and how they view the press in the Trump era, with partisans picking sides on Twitter.
