CNN could be ready to sue Donald Trump over the expulsion of Jim Acosta. The Daily Wire reports:
Liberal cable network CNN may be getting ready to sue the White House over the Trump administration’s decision to yank chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass after a combative press conference.
In fact, former ABC News reporter Sam Donaldson said CNN has already filed suit.
“I hope I’m not mistaken, but it’s my understanding that CNN and Acosta have sued, that there will be a court hearing on Tuesday on this very matter that we’ve been discussing,” Donaldson said Sunday on CNN’s “Reliable Sources.”
But CNN’s Brian Stelter said “no lawsuit has been filed.”
This would be a tough test to the First Amendment. Is having credentials to the White House press briefing a constitutional right?
