CNN is suing President Donald Trump and multiple White House aides for revoking press pass of the news network’s White House correspondent, Jim Acosta.
The lawsuit comes less than a week after the White House announced it would suspend Acosta’s “hard pass” after the reporter’s fiery exchange with Trump at a news conference Wednesday.
White House chief of staff John Kelly, press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders, deputy communications chief Bill Shine, Secret Service Director Joseph Clancy are also included in the suit. The Secret Service officer who yanked Acosta’s pass is also included in the lawsuit, though he is not identified by name.
