In response to the White House letter: CNN asks for an emergency hearing

9 month ago

CNN is asking the U.S. District Court for another emergency hearing after the White House has adressed a new letter to Jim Acosta, claiming they will revoke his press pass again.

Last friday, CNN won a temporary restraining order to restore the journalist's press access to the White House for 14 days. Later that same day, the White House sent a formal letter to Acosta, citing his conduct at President Trump's November, 7 press conference and outlining a " preliminary decision" to suspend his pass.

The judge criticized the government for not following due process before banning Jim Acosta, and the letter seems to be an efgort to estsblish a paper trail to boot Acosta again at the 14 days deadline.
