After CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta had his ‘hard pass’ revoked by the White House, veteran White House reporter Sam Donaldson told CNN’s Brian Stelter that the network was suing the White House for taking away Acosta’s press access.
In an interview on Reliable Sources Sunday morning, First Amendment lawyer Floyd Abrams said that CNN has a really strong case if they decided to file a lawsuit. (Video Below)
CNN and Jim Acosta are allegedly suing the Trump administration for removing the press credentials of the controversial reporter following a tense incident Wednesday during a news conference at the White House.
According to ABC’s former White House correspondent Sam Donaldson, Acosta and his employer filed a lawsuit and are expecting a court hearing in the upcoming week.
“I can understand CNN being reluctant to sue because the president keeps saying CNN is the enemy of me, and CNN might have reluctance to have a lawsuit titled ‘CNN vs. Donald Trump,’” Abrams told Stelter. “That said, yes, I think they should sue.” (Video Below)
However, a CNN spokesperson would not say that it was going ahead with any legal action against the Trump administration, according to The Hill that “no decisions have been made.”
The crying “news” network is now taking their hysteria to court.

Further, Brian Stelter of CNN tweeted the following:
On @ReliableSources, Sam Donaldson said he's been asked to prepare an affidavit to support CNN. But no lawsuit has been filed. CNN said in a statement just now, "No decisions have been made. We have reached out to the White House and gotten no response." https://t.co/UYIgNIB8eJ
