White House threatens to suspend CNN reporter's pass again when order expires


"But [White House] officials sent Acosta a letter stating that his press pass is set to be suspended again once the restraining order expires", CNN's Brian Stelter reported.

The CNN correspondent received a letter from the Trump administration following the restoration of his White House press pass on Friday, informing him that it would suspend his press pass again at the end of the month.

Judge Kelly, a Trump appointee, said that his ruling was based on CNN and Acosta's Fifth Amendment claims, arguing that the White House did not give him the due process legally necessary to revoke his press pass. These actions threaten all journalists and news organizations. "Jim Acosta and CNN will continue to report the news about the White House and the President", the network said in a statement.

The White House responded that it would come up with a code of conduct for the press at briefings, which hadn't existed before.

In accepting the ruling, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House would "temporarily" reinstate Acosta's hard pass.

Trump Says He Won't Listen to Khashoggi 'Suffering Tape'
Over the past several weeks, the Saudis have offered multiple, contradictory explanations for what happened at the consulate. She provided no additional details but said the president has confidence in the Central Intelligence Agency .

But Judge Kelly noted that his ruling was narrow. At no point was Acosta's barred access to the White House. The judge ordered the temporary reinstatement of Acosta's press pass while the lawsuit proceeds.

"These basic, commonsense practices are necessary for orderly press conferences that are fair to all journalists in attendance", they wrote, adding that "no other reporter" failed to live up to those standards at the November 7 press conference.

Axios also Monday reported an unnamed White House official said a decision will be made after hearing the case, and said the White House had sent a letter to CNN that gives a chance for the reporter to make his case for continued White House access. "It's not a big deal and if he misbehaves, we'll throw him out or we'll stop the news conference", Trump said.

The pass was revoked after a contentious press conference in which a White House intern attempted to grab a microphone away from the CNN reporter while he was grilling Donald Trump. Trump, seeking to move on after answering Acosta's initial question, called Acosta a "rude, bad person" as Acosta held on to the microphone and kept talking while a White House intern tried to take it back. Trump said. "I mean, with this stuff, you never know what's going to happen".
