White House restores CNN reporter's pass but unveils new rules for journalists

White House restores CNN reporter's pass but unveils new rules for journalists

The rules come after a judge ordered the White House to reinstate the press pass for CNN correspondent Jim Acosta, who angered President Donald Trump by asking more than one question.

U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly on Friday ruled that Acosta's credentials had to be restored, at least temporarily, because the White House failed to follow due process when they revoked them hours after a contentious press conference on November 7.

(He extended the timeline to 6 p.m. after a request by the DOJ.) The White House tried to solve the due process problem identified by Kelly in Friday's ruling by sending Acosta a new letter notifying him why his pass was revoked.

"The White House is continuing to violate the First and Fifth Amendments of the constitution", the network said in a statement on Sunday. In the Friday ruling, the judge restored Acosta's credentials temporarily while a CNN lawsuit against the administration proceeds. You can't give notice after taking official action, though; due process typically requires giving the person being targeted a chance to make his case before the government acts. Acosta has repeatedly clashed with Mr Trump and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders in briefings over the past two years.

The White House's explanations for why it seized Acosta's hard pass shifted over the week afterwards. The November 7 quarrel between the journalist and the President of the United States now has the WH planning to draw up rules of conduct it hopes will discourage others in the press room from following Acosta's lead.

Dead in cars and homes: Northern California fire toll at 29
The Woolsey fire has destroyed more than 170 homes and killed two people, putting the total death toll from the wildfires at 31. Other celebrities have also been affected by the fires including Gerard Butler , Robin Thicke and Neil Young .

In issuing these rules, the White House apparently hopes to be able to suspend reporters' credentials without running afoul of due process protections.

The letter gave Acosta less than 48 hours to contest the "preliminary decision" and said a "final determination" would be made by Monday at 3 p.m.

Jim Acosta returned to the White House after his credentials were unrevoked by court order. Since Kelly was following Sherrill, there's every reason to believe that the White House would have lost even if it had dotted its I's and crossed its T's on notifying Acosta beforehand that his pass was about to disappear. "We're doing that. We're going to write them up right now - it's not a big deal". CNN filed new papers today accusing the Trump administration of violating their constitutional rights by planning to punish Acosta retroactively by applying rules of decorum that aren't written.

"If he misbehaves", Trump said, apparently referring to Acosta, "we'll throw him out or we'll stop the news conference".
