White House Letter to CNN threatening permanent revocation of Acosta’s press pass [full text]
The White House sent a letter to CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta Friday threatening to permanently revoke his press pass. CNN has since asked a federal court to intervene.
In the letter, White House Communications Deputy Chief of Staff Bill Shine and White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said that they had made a “preliminary decision” to suspend Acosta’s press pass and that it would become “final” if he did not respond in a timely manner.
“Your behavior at the November 7 press conference violated the basic standards governing such events, and is, in our preliminary judgment, sufficient factual basis to revoke your hard pass,” they wrote in the letter. “Please submit a written response to us in writing via email by 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, November 18, 2018. Should you not submit a response by that time, this preliminary decision will [become] final.”
In CNN’s filing, they responded to the letter saying that the White House “yet again” violated Acosta’s constitutional rights.
