Highlight Hollywood reported on Sunday that our sources confirmed that CNN would be suing Trump and the White House. CNN is fighting back agaist the wannabe-dictator and racist Trump. CNN filed suit on Tuesday to reverse the Trump administration’s decision last Wednesday to suspend chief White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass,” which grants access to the building. The news was broken on CNN’s airwaves.
“CNN a lawsuit against the Trump administration in D.C. District Court,” the network said in a statement. “It demands the return of the White House credentials of CNN’s chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta. The wrongful revocation of these credentials violates CNN and Acosta’s First Amendment rights of freedom of the press, and their Fifth Amendment rights to due process.”
CNN continued: “We have asked this court for an immediate restraining order requiring the pass to be returned to Jim, and will seek permanent relief as part of this process.”
White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced the suspension in a statement last Wednesday night, alleging that Acosta “[placed] his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern” during a press conference after the midterm elections. Acosta called the White House’s statement “a lie,” and his fellow journalists — and his network — came to his defense, arguing that he did nothing wrong and was simply attempting to keep his microphone and ask the president a second question.
The White House has not yet responded to CNN’s lawsuit.
On Wednesday night, Sanders tweeted out a video of Acosta’s interaction with the intern that appeared to have been doctored, taken from the conspiratorial InfoWars website, to make the clash look more physically contentious than it was.
