White House threatens to suspend CNN reporter's press pass again

The filing asks for a hearing next week. But the court order was temporary, and would expire after two weeks.

"From the looks of the letter, the W.H.is trying to establish a paper trail that will empower the administration to boot Acosta again at the end of the month", said Stelter, a CNN senior media correspondent.

Acosta's press credentials were revoked after he and President Trump verbally sparred at a press conference this month. "The letter explains that reporters are expected to ask a single question when called up upon and then yield the floor unless a follow-up is permitted", Fox reported. It also makes it easier for them to go through White House security. The letter called it a "preliminary decision" and said the White House would consider any response that CNN or Acosta would like to submit. Due process would give Acosta and CNN the chance to rebut and challenge the appropriateness of the government's action.

"We are disappointed with the district court's decision", the Justice Department said in response.

In a significant shift from its previous attempt to revoke Acosta's credentials and in a potential move to alleviate due process concerns, the White House letter also lays out a process for Acosta to contest the preliminary decision through written correspondence.

The White House said Acosta would continue to hold his credentials while the 14-day judge's order was in effect.

The judge, however, made it clear that his ruling was not on the merits of the lawsuit.

In accepting the ruling, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House would "temporarily" reinstate Acosta's hard pass. Judge Timothy J. Kelly ruled on Fifth Amendment grounds, saying Acosta's right to due process had been violated. A hard pass allows a reporter to attend multiple press briefings without having to reapply for a day pass.

Trump told Fox News' Chris Wallace in an interview Sunday, if Acosta "misbehaves, we'll throw him out or we'll stop the news conference". He continued, "And if they don't listen to the rules and regulations, we'll end up back in court and we'll win". We're doing that, were going to write them up right now.

"We'll have rules of decorum", Trump said.
