WHCA files amicus brief in CNN, Acosta case

Today the White House Correspondents’ Association (WHCA) filed its Amicus Curiae Brief in support of CNN’s Motion for a Temporary Restraining Order in the matter of CNN vs. Donald J. Trump.   At yesterday’s hearing on CNN’s motion, the Department of Justice argued that the President has unbridled authority to pick and choose for any reason those journalists who might cover him.  The WHCA brief highlights the danger posed to all journalists, and to the American public, if the President’s claim is permitted to stand.
-Olivier Knox, WHCA President.
