CNN and Jim Acosta said they filed a lawsuit against President Trump, WH Press Sec. Sarah Sanders, the Secret Service and several aides on Tuesday over the suspension of Acosta’s hard press pass.
Jim Acosta’s White House press pass was suspended following the incident with a female White House staffer last Wednesday.
White House Press secretary Sarah Sanders responded to the lawsuit noting that CNN has in-fact nearly 50 additional hard pass holders and Jim Acosta is “no more or less special than any other media outlet or reporter with respect to the First Amendment.”
