A federal judge on Friday ordered the Trump administration to return the White House press credentials of CNN reporter Jim Acosta immediately. U.S. District Judge Timothy Kelly, an appointee of President Donald Trump, said the White House explanation for revoking the credentials came too late and did not respect Acosta’s right to due process. The Secret Service took away the reporter’s press pass after he refused to yield his time or the microphone at a news conference with the president on Nov. 7.
