CNN sues Trump over Jim Acosta’s credential suspension

CNN has filed a lawsuit against the Trump administration after the White House suspended the credentials of one of its senior journalists.

Its chief White House correspondent, Jim Acosta, had his press “hard pass” revoked last week hours after he got into a testy exchange with Mr Trump.

The network alleges this violates its and Acosta’s constitutional rights.

The lawsuit, filed in Washington DC on Tuesday, names the president and other senior aides as defendants.
