Trump administration must return press pass to CNN reporter Jim Acosta

The judge said Acosta's credentials would be returned immediately and reactivated to allow him access to the White House.

"People have to behave, and they have to do- we're writing up rules and regulations to make our position". It doesn't mean he gets to ask questions, it doesn't mean Trump or Sanders have to answer his questions, it doesn't mean they have to hold press briefings at all.

Fox Business host Lou Dobbs railed against the ruling in Federal court Friday in which Judge Timothy J. Kelly ordered the restoration of White House access for CNN's Jim Acosta.

CNN alleged that Acosta's First and Fifth Amendment rights were violated when the White House revoked his "hard pass". But he left open the possibility that Trump could revoke Acosta's press pass again, if due process was given.

CNN said it was "gratified with this result, and we look forward to a full resolution in the coming days". "You can't stand up and not sit down", he continued.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced Acosta's "indefinite" suspension last week after the confrontation at the news conference.

This conduct is absolutely unacceptable.

"Whether the news of the day concerns national security, the economy or the environment, reporters covering the White House must remain free to ask questions", the media groups said in a joint statement ahead of Wednesday's hearing.

She contended Trump "has given the press more access than any president in history".

The White House revoked the reporter's press pass last week after a heated exchange between him and Trump and a brief altercation with a press aide at a news conference.

In court, Justice Department lawyer James Burnham claimed the White House had the legal right to boot a reporter at any time.

At the press conference, which occured a day after the United States midterm elections, Trump dodged questions on a number of issues, including those about his role in contributing to the rise of white nationalism in the US.

Outside the courthouse after the hearing, Acosta thanked the press for its support and thanked Kelly for the ruling.

"Our honest thanks to all who have supported not just CNN, but a free, strong and independent American press", it read. "That's enough, that's enough", Trump told Acosta, as a White House staffer attempted to take the microphone away from the correspondent. I want to thank the judge.

The ruling is a major win for CNN and its combative approach to the Trump White House.

Although some seem to believe that the entire Acosta scandal was a ruse by Trump to save Assange's neck.

Garrett told conservative radio host Larry O'Connor he had asked hard questions of all four presidents he had covered-Trump, Barack Obama, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton-and while he said he didn't want to criticize how his colleagues acted, he agreed with O'Connor's point that there was a code of conduct for reporters at the White House.

"I've never seen anything like it", Wallace said.
