Acosta vs Trump: White House to vigorously defend CNN Lawsuit

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders has said that, the lawsuit filed against it by CNN will be vigorously defended.

Sanders forcefully dismissed CNN’s lawsuit to restore White House reporter Jim Acosta’s press credentials, in a Tuesday morning statement.

“We have been advised that CNN has filed a complaint challenging the suspension of Jim Acosta’s hard pass.

This is just more grandstanding from CNN, and we will vigorously defend against this lawsuit,” Sanders declared in her statement.

Sanders continued in her statement, “The White House cannot run an orderly and fair press conference when a reporter acts this way, which is neither appropriate nor professional.

The First Amendment is not served when a single reporter, of more than 150 present, attempts to monopolize the floor.

If there is no check on this type of behavior it impedes the ability of the President, the White House staff, and members of the media to conduct business.”

Acosta’s credentials was suspended last week claiming that he laid hands on an intern after refusing to surrender the microphone during a press conference.
