White House to restore Acosta's pass _ with a warning

CBS' White House Correspondent There's a Level of Decorum Expected of White House Press Pool

Shortly after the White House sent a letter to Jim Acosta informing the CNN correspondent of their plans to once again revoke his access, the Trump administration is reversing course.

CNN argued in a statement provided to its own senior media correspondent, Brian Stelter, that the action would threaten "all journalists and news organizations", about which Stelter tweeted early Monday.

President Donald Trump speaks as CNN's Jim Acosta, standing at right, listens, during a news conference in the East Room of the White House, Nov. 7, 2018, in Washington.

In a filing on Monday, CNN and Acosta asked for an expedited hearing next week after top White House communications officials told Acosta in a letter late on Friday that it had already chose to suspend his pass once the two-week restraining order expires.

White House Communications Director Bill Shine and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders signed the letter, which promised a final decision by Monday afternoon.

In a court filing on Monday, CNN's lawyers said the network and Acosta "remain hopeful" that the parties "can resolve this dispute without further court intervention".

On a trip to California Saturday, the president emphasized that journalists have to treat the White House with respect, in answering questions about Acosta's situation.

Argentinian sub found partially 'imploded', officials say have no means to refloat
ARA San Juan disappeared 270 miles off the Argentine coast a year ago after reporting an "electrical breakdown". The families of the 44 crew members who perished in the accident have been summoned to be officially informed.

The move came after the White House informed Acosta on Friday of a "preliminary decision" to once again revoke his White House after a temporary 14-day order reinstating the pass expires.

The letter cites "behavior" at a press conference the day after the midterms that "violated the basic standards governing such events" as the reason to suspend Acosta's pass.

In that incident, the White House claimed that the reporter had assaulted the aide, and Saunders shared an edited clip of the altercation, which was enhanced to make it appear as if Acosta had stuck the aide. CNN's suit accuses the administration of violating its and Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights.

Donald Trump revoked CNN's Jim Acosta's press credentials after the journalist asked him a series of pointed questions.

"What they said, though, is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct etc. etc".

One of the reasons the judge reinstated the press pass is because the White House didn't seem to give an explanation for their decision or offer due process. "We look forward to continuing to cover the White House".

"You asked a question and the president answered it", the letter said. "It's not a big deal and if he misbehaves, we'll throw him out or we'll stop the news conference", Trump said.
