Major Network Gears Up to Sue Trump

Donaldson, speaking on CNN’s “Reliable Sources,” said that he has been asked to submit an affidavit in the lawsuit in preparation for a court hearing this week.

The White House pulled Acosta’s hard pass after a tense exchange between him and President Trump during a press conference last week.

The White House cited Acosta’s interaction with a press aide as reason to pull the credentials, accusing him of “placing his hands on" her. In return, CNN accused White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders of “fraudulent accusations."

A CNN spokesperson told The Hill that “no decisions have been made.”

The apparently impending lawsuit comes after White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders shared a video that appeared sped up to look like Acosta forcibly tussled with a female intern trying to retrieve a microphone.
