CNN is accusing White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders of posting a doctored video clip of CNN reporter Jim Acosta assaulting a female White House intern at President Donald Trump’s press conference Wednesday. CNN Vice President for Communications Matt Dornic wrote on Twitter to Sanders, “You manipulated this video. The lies never end.”
Acosta was suspended from covering the White House Wednesday evening by Sanders over the assault.
Images show Acosta hacking the intern’s arm with enough force to push her arm down and knock her off balance.
Sanders later posted a video clip with zoom images of Acosta hacking the arm of a young female White House intern as she tried to take the microphone from Acosta to pass on to another reporter. Acosta hit the woman with enough force to briefly knock her off balance.
