•CNN is suing President Donald Trump and multiple White House aides for revoking press pass of the news network's White House correspondent, Jim Acosta.

•The lawsuit comes less than a week after the White House announced it would suspend Acosta's "hard pass" in the wake of the reporter's fiery exchange with Trump at a news conference Wednesday.

•CNN alleges in its legal action, which has been filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., that Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights were being violated with the ban.

CNN is suing President Donald Trump and multiple White House aides for revoking the press pass of the news network's White House correspondent, Jim Acosta.

The lawsuit comes less than a week after press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced it would suspend Acosta's White House credential, often called a "hard pass," in the wake of the reporter's fiery exchange with Trump at a news conference Wednesday.

Sanders, White House chief of staff John Kelly, deputy communications chief Bill Shine and Secret Service Director Randolph Alles are also included in the suit. The Secret Service officer who yanked Acosta's pass is also included in the lawsuit, though he is not identified by name.

CNN alleges in its legal action, which has been filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., that Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights were being violated with the ban.

Acosta, who has frequently clashed with Trump administration officials, had challenged the president about his characterization of a "caravan" of Central American migrants traveling to the U.S.-Mexico border.

A female staffer then attempted to pull the microphone out of Acosta's hand, which he initially refused to surrender. "You are a rude, terrible person," Trump responded as Acosta continued to speak into a microphone being passed around to the gaggle of reporters present for the news conference in the White House.

Later Wednesday, Acosta tweeted that he had been denied entrance to the White House grounds.

Sanders, in a series of tweets the same same day, said the Trump administration will "never tolerate a reporter placing his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern."

Critics and media colleagues quickly pushed back on the statement, arguing that Sanders had mischaracterized the altercation. The press secretary received even more criticism after she tweeted a video of the exchange, which The Washington Post and other outlets said was doctored. That video was first shared by a right-wing commentator associated with conspiracy theory website Infowars, the Post reported.

Later that week, Trump appeared to discard the notion that Acosta had inappropriately placed his hands on the intern — the reason stated by Trump's administration for revoking the pass in the first place.

Acosta "was not nice to that young woman," Trump said in remarks to reporters Friday, but "I don't hold him for that because it wasn't overly, you know, horrible."

CNN is asking the court for a preliminary injunction that would reinstate Acosta's press credentials as soon as possible.

"While the suit is specific to CNN and Acosta, this could have happened to anyone," CNN said in a statement Tuesday morning. "If left unchallenged, the actions of the White House would create a dangerous chilling effect for any journalist who covers our elected officials."

Minutes after the lawsuit was reported Tuesday morning, White House Correspondents' Association President Olivier Knox offered a statement of support for the media outlet.

"Revoking access to the White House complex amounted to disproportionate reaction to the events of last Wednesday. We continue to urge the Administration to reverse course and fully reinstate CNN's correspondent," Knox said.

He added: "The President of the United Sates should not be in the business of arbitrarily picking the men and women who cover him."

The president has regularly slammed numerous mainstream media outlets "fake news" for their coverage of him and his administration, including The New York Times, NBC News, The Washington Post and others.

Trump has repeatedly singled out CNN in his attacks. And days after CNN's New York offices were targeted with mail bombs allegedly by Trump fanatic Cesar Sayoc, the president said "the Fake News Media" was "the true Enemy of the People."

... the president said "the Fake News Media" was "the true Enemy of the People."

Which CNN promptly reported as, "The President said that the media is the enemy of the people".

CNN alleges in its legal action … that Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights were being violated with the ban.

Wait a minute. I'm banned from Presidential press conferences. Can I sue?

CNN alleges in its legal action, which has been filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., that Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights were being violated with the ban.

When one is invited into the White House, there is no constitutional right to act like an asshole.

When invited to ask a question, that is not an invite to start a debate. When ordered to give up the mic, one does not offer resistance to the lady trying to retrieve the mic.

When one is disinvited due to boorish behavior, that is just too bad.

Limit the reporters to one question -- no follow-up. After the question is asked, take the mike before responding.

Any reporter attempting to keep the mike is ejected from the press conference for interfering with the first amendment rights of the other reporters.

Accosted is an habitual troublemaker and not interested in asking cogent questions. Instead he incessantly baits the press secretary and now the president. He should be persona-non-grata forever. Then he should get a job he is entirely suited for. Perhaps he could be a political hack working for the Democrat-Communist party.

Liberals are like Slinkys. They're good for nothing, but somehow they bring a smile to your face as you shove them down the stairs.

It will be amusing to see CNN embarrassed when this is thrown out. I don't think even a Demo appointed judge would give this suit the time of day. (But you never know).

Even better if the judge determines this is a frivolous lawsuit. Which it clearly is.

Acosta does not have an unfettered constitutional right to act like an asshole, and continue to ask questions, over EVERYONE ELSE, and disrupt every news conference.

Think about it... if a court should side with him, it gives every American citizen the constitutional right to act like an ASSHOLE anarchist Dicktard, if they call themselves “media”. A stupid trick that sovereign citizens, Paultards and anarchists have been doing for YEARS, to annoy law enforcement.

And it would then permit one "reporter" to dominate the press conference and deny other reporters their first amendment right to ask questions.
