White House, President Trump, CNN discussed on Sean Hannity

Automatic TRANSCRIPT

Excuse me. Excuse me. Would you place? It. CNN's argument is very straightforward that the first amendment is meant for the press to be able to act on behalf of the American people, and and the public and getting information and here when the White House revoked Mr Costa's press pass it's clear was based on the content of his reporting. And the fact that he was asking tough questions and has been doing that the President Trump in the White House has repeatedly challenged and attacks CNN, and Mr. Kosta, and it's really a classic first amendment viewpoint content based discrimination against speech, and we can't have the White House or government officials arbitrarily tossing people out of the White House or other government facilities. Just because they don't like what they're saying. Or what they're reporting. That's what happened here that violates the first amendment CNN tried to work this out. Requested that the past be restored. Mr. Kosta was denied a day pass in France, even of the French government allowed would've allowed him to go cover President Trump's appearance at a cemetery. But the White House is basically just been. Ignoring these requests. So we really had no choice, but to sue we didn't want to have to go to court. We wanted to just report the news, Mr Costa wants to report, the news CNN watts report canoe. So that's what the courts are for the first amendment and the fifth amendment arguments, the due process organs are very strong. We're asking for emergency relief because every day that this past has been revoked is a first amendment violation. And it's irreparable harm in the words of the law. Russia. Towards the oppressed. Obviously is not helpful. At times. There are some fears of on Capitol Hill and understand some in the White House democratic wave is coming sweep the Republicans out of power house and that could potentially lead to impeachment proceedings. The Democrats could bring forward what does the president's thinking on that? What is your understanding? Could be different than for security service. Order security canal, actually. Agency being more fencing it doesn't necessarily mean. A physical part of the negotiation that we expect congress to have. They may not be in favor of this kind of deal. They say thanks, but no, thanks. Negotiating with Humana. Let congress secure that we're witnessing right now is just this erosion of our freedoms in terms of covering the president United States. I think that there are moments when this president is is just really sensitive to criticism, and he lashes out in this fashion vanishes. Strange at unpresidential. Throwing rolls of paper towels of last three news conferences wolf all of the questions to the American. News media have have been handled by conservative press. And I think wolf there's no other way to describe it. But the fix is in. Let me ask you to the world jet for people to do you believe to this country? Pretty highly skilled, Jimmy, Jim, Jim, I appreciate your speech. I think we saw the president's true colors today. And I'm not sure they were red white and blue. Right..
