CNN sues Trump after wild clash

CNN's Jim Acosta denied entry to White House White House suspends press pass of CNN’s Jim Acosta after confrontation with President Trump

Sanders tweeted the doctored video in defense of Acosta's White House press pass being revoked, and Colbert believes she should be held accountable. On his "Watters' World" show Saturday, Watters said Acosta is trying to be "the Rosa Parks" of journalism, invoking the African-American civil rights activist who in 1955 famously refused to give up her bus seat to a white man.

Abba Shapiro, a video production trainer, says he noted the anomalies in the video tweeted by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders.

The suit was filed in DC District Court.

During a media gaggle outside the White House, CNN reporter Abby Phillip asked the president if he wants Matthew Whitaker, named acting attorney general, to "rein in" Special Counsel Robert Mueller, who's overseeing the investigation into so-called "Russian collusion".

Legal experts say the network's chances of winning in court are favorable.

Acosta has had his White House credentials revoked but, since those are meaningless in Paris, it is possible that he and the president of the USA will be face-to-face in France.

Trump responded: "What a stupid question that is".

The suspension of a reporter's pass is named a Secret Service "hard pass".

Boris Johnson was one of the most prominent and influential of the Brexit advocates. Supporting a bad deal is not in the national interest.

"It's just like in the movies and television, when you see something, faster action, it feels more aggressive", Shapiro said. Sherrill sued and won in 1977, though he declined to apply for a pass afterward, according to journalist George Condon.

Ryan became a CNN contributor a year ago. Finally, after blurting out another hostile question, the President said "Okay, just sit down, please".

A frame-by-frame comparison of the video shows that Sander's clip has been edited to speed up Acosta's arm movement as he touches the woman's arm.

"The government can not exclude reporters from [the White House] due to their views", said Jaffer. Acosta asked a question. It would be intolerable to let this kind of thing go unchallenged. You have to treat the White House with respect.

The lawsuit alleges that Jim Acosta and CNN's rights are being violated by the ban, which followed a confrontation between Mr Trump and the journalist at a news conference last week. But on Wednesday, Acosta grabbed headlines for an extended exchange which seemed to encapsulate the hostility felt between the two since the 2016 campaign.

The president on Friday also called Acosta unprofessional and unintelligent. It's unclear why the White House would have used the Infowars video as a source as opposed to direct footage from the cameras at the event.

"If favorable coverage is the price of operating with the [White House] gates, then we can cover it from outside the gates", said Toffel, a lawyer who was once an intern in the White House press office.
