The White House on Monday restored press access for CNN reporter Jim Acosta, ending a legal fight that had so far gone against the Trump administration. White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said in a statement the press pass for Acosta, which was revoked after a contentious Nov. 7 news conference with President Donald Trump, was restored but reporters who ignored new rules for news conferences could have their credentials taken away. The White House Correspondents' Association said it had not helped craft the White House's list of rules for news conferences.

“He’s never been interested in going.” As President Donald Trump's egregiously disrespectful attitude toward members of the military has come under closer scrutiny, he has received an increasing amount of criticism for never having visited service members who serve overseas in dangers combat zones. While there's certainly always some risk for a president to make such trips, the military is well-equipped to plan and arrange these visits with safety as a key goal. Other wartime presidents have traditionally made such ventures. One main motivating reason is that they feel a duty to show up for soldiers who literally put their lives at risk every day at the commander-in-chief's direction.A new report from the Washington Post reveals that Trump's hesitancy is due to a very predictable reason: fear.“He’s never been interested in going,” one anonymous official told the post, referring to conversations directly with Trump. "He's afraid of those situations. He’s afraid peo...

This was a huge issue int he 2016 election. Ivanka Trump has sent hundreds of emails to other government employees including White House aides and Cabinet officials during her time in her father's administration, according to a new report in the Washington Post.According to the report, "many" of these emails violated federal records rules, which require government employees to used their work email accounts when discussing official business.The Post found that some of President Donald Trump's advisers were "alarmed" when ethics officials discovered the breach. The president spent much of his 2016 campaign deriding Hillary Clinton's use of her private email server for official business as secretary of state. News organization gave the scandal expansive coverage during the campaign, despite the fact that an FBI investigation found there was no ground to bring criminal charges against her.The report continued:Some aides were startled by the volume of Ivanka Trump’s personal email...

The military presence at the border was supposed to be a vital safeguard of national security. Now the Pentagon isn't even pretending it was necessary anymore. When President Donald Trump ordered the military to patrol the U.S.-Mexico border in late October, he framed it as an urgent measure to protect Americans from the Honduran migrant "caravan" trekking through Mexico toward the United States. He called the approaching asylum seekers "an assault in our country" and vowed that he would send "as many [troops] as necessary."Flash forward to mid-November. On Monday, POLITICO reported that the Pentagon plans to start calling back the troops from the border — even though the caravan is only just arriving:The Pentagon is set to begin a drawdown of its 5,800 troops from the Southwest border as early as this week, the Army commander overseeing the mission told POLITICO today — even as the approaching caravan of refugees prompted U.S. customs officers to close a port of entry n...

Trump is stepping up the attacks on the free press. CNN reporter Jim Acosta had his press credentials for the White House fully restored Monday after they had been pulled in response to his critical questioning of President Donald Trump about his anti-immigrant smears.A court had already ordered the credentials to be restored, issuing a preliminary finding that the White House had violated Acosta's right to due process. The White House had considered only restoring the pass temporarily for the time required by the judge, but it caved and issued a full restoration Monday. However, in addition to the restoration of Acosta's pass, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders issued new draconian rules for the press corps: A journalist called upon to ask a question will ask a single question and then will yield the floor to other journalists;At the discretion of the President or other White House official taking questions, a follow-up question or questions may be permitted; and where a follow up...

CNN’s White House correspondent Jim Acosta may have won the recent battle about his access to the White House, but it appears as though Donald Trump’s war against the “fake news” media is far from over. On Friday, a federal judge — appointed by Mr Trump, nonetheless — ordered the White House to restore Mr Acosta’s credentials after they were revoked following clash with the president at a press conference earlier this month. At the time, Mr Acosta refused to hand over a microphone to an intern, despite Mr Trump moving on to another reporter.

In response, the news network has called for another an emergency court hearing claiming the Trump administration is continuing to breach the constitutional rights of the First Amendment - free speech - and the Fifth Amendment, the right to due process. On Friday, District Judge Timothy Kelly temporarily restored Acosta's credentials for 14 days, saying the White House had failed to provide due process in removing Mr Acosta's pass over "inappropriate" behaviour at a press conference where he clashed with Donald Trump .

The press room at the White House, according to Saunders, only seats 49 reporters. Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Saunders claims she is working on "standard practices" for reports in an interview on Fox News on Friday."We'll work with our team on that and certainly moving into Thanksgiving holiday we'll see how long that process takes, but I think there are some just standard practices," said Saunders while being interviewed by her father Mike Huckabee. Huckabee was filling in for Sean Hannity.The interview also included a clip of Chris Wallace's interview with the President that aired today. In it, the president re-iterated what Saunders said, stating that the White House has "to create rules and regulations for conduct, etc., etc." for reporters, and that should Acosta or presumably other reports violate those rules, "we'll throw him out or we'll stop the news conference."Jim Acosta of CNN has been regularly criticized by the administration, which led to a heated confrontation...

The mainstream media are celebrating Friday’s decision by a federal judge to force the White House to restore CNN correspondent Jim Acosta’s “hard pass.” Judge Timothy J. Kelly’s decision is being treated as a victory for the free press, and proof that the Trump administration’s decision was wrong and violated Acosta’s constitutional rights. But  the decision undermined the picture of the Trump administration the media have sought to portray, in three ways: 1. A Trump appointee ruled against Trump. The media, and their Democratic Party allies, have treated President Donald Trump’s judicial nominees as if they can be expected to be slavishly loyal to the administration. That is why, for example, they focused on Brett Kavanaugh’s views on whether a president can be indicted while in office. The left expects judges to vote their “party,” because that is what left-wing judges do. Kelly, a Trump appointee, did not. 2. Cons...

On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks discussed the lawsuit over the revocation of CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass and argued that both the White House’s position and “The other extreme, that anybody should have complete access,” are both incorrect. Brooks stated, “[T]here’s just such a vast middle here. The White House is — their argument was clearly ridiculous, that they can totally control, when they’re just doing a public service, they’re part of a public servant. On the other hand, if there is some complete troublemaker…who has reported — becomes a reporter, that person doesn’t get to monopolize the room. … Nobody in that White House room is well outside the bounds right now.” He concluded, “And so, the one extreme, which was the White House position, is clearly wrong. The other extreme, that anybody should have complete acce...

On Friday’s “PBS NewsHour,” New York Times columnist David Brooks stated that the court ruling that the White House must give back CNN Chief White House Correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass “is basically a win for civility.” Brooks stated, “You know, when you have grownups behaving like grownups, you don’t need to have these big confrontations. … But then you get one person in the room who breaks all the norms, and, in this case, it’s the president, and then the other people, in order to be heard, have to get a little ruder. And then it just escalates. And because it’s America, it has to go to a law — and have somebody sue each other. And so, what Acosta did was marginally rude, I think only marginally, but given the atmosphere that Trump has set, well within the bounds of what is now the normal.” He continued, “What — the White House overreacted. So I think this is basically a win for civility. I...
