Skip to comments.Judge Who Restored Acosta’s Press Pass Should Be Impeached Because He Doesn’t Know The Constitution

Federal Judge Timothy J. Kelly, a Trump-appointed judge, ruled that the White House had to restore CNN reporter Jim Acostas press pass because it potentially violated due process of law, and since no crime was committed and no charges have been filed, I believe that Judge Kelly has no idea of what due process is nor what the Constitution states about it and should be impeached.
Kelly went on to state, The opportunity to be heard seems especially important in this case. The government must provide Mr. Acosta due process if it is to revoke his hard pass.
No choice? Apply precedent? How about applying the Constitution, Mr. Kelly? No criminal charges were filed. No crime was alleged. Due process, under our Constitution, is about the violation of law and charges that go with that!

ok judge tell me what law says Acosta can be there
A large number of them should starting with Breyer abd Ginburg.
Wonder what will happen on appeal?
What property, that was Acosta’s, was he deprived of without due process?
This travesty of justices (liberal ones) will continue until there are repercussions. Maybe our new acting director can add that to his list of things to do. Right after dealing with Mueller.
yup. no person has any right to a white house press pass.
Before now, the press could self-police.
It's really a very funny joke on them.
If I was Trump I would eat crap with a spoon before I would call on that POS for a question....
This is what Mark Steyn was talking about when I got in on very little of his subbing for Rush Friday...that the judge was way off base in his interpretation of “due process” in the constitution. Maybe the president should bring that up in his tweets. Sure he appointed the guy but he can’t assume they are all going to know or follow the constitution so no big deal admitting that this one was a “mistake.”
What if Acosta was believed to be a terrorist. Would the White House have to continue his press pass until some sort of “due process” (Whatever that might be for a press pass. Seems to me that whoever issued it can use the same process to revoke it) or he blows the place up, whichever came first?
This judge should have his courtroom filled with reporters asking questions and disrupting. And if he threatens anybody with contempt, they should shoot back that he has no right to such action without the same due process he ordered upon the executive branch. His, after all is an equally accountable branch of government and has traipsed too long excluding the media from covering it procedures... in the interest of transparency and all that.
I wish for there to be a law...
if a judge rules something to be unconstitutional...
it’s found that the president’s decision (or anybody else’s decision), is constitutional and not in violation of any law...
it’s incumbent upon the judge who made the decision uninformed decision, to resign his/her position in the court.
And plagiarist and most likely a FReeploader.
The judge relied on a 1977 case from the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C., where judges ruled the Secret Service couldnt deny a press pass to a reporter in an arbitrary way without notice or an opportunity to rebut potentially violating the 5th Amendments right to due process.
So in 1977 they pulled this. And that is now a precedent overruling the Constitution. There is no right to a press pass for within the White House.
No one has said Acosta could not be a member of the press. No one has said Acosta cant report. The White House has revoked his visitor privileges.
If this is made to be a new precedent, we are in trouble. We arent supposed to be changing the Constitution under the phony guise of interpreting it. Tomorrow the WH should put up a list of policies that are common sense involving considerate adult behavior and respect for White House rules, and have everyone admitted to their press room sign. Period.
Who is Tim Brown Brown and where did he earn his law degree?
no press conferences until the matter is decided by the courts, including appeals if necessary.
Yeah, its fine, I mean its not a big deal. What they said, though, is that we have to create rules and regulations for conduct etc. etc. Were doing that, were going to write them up right now. Its not a big deal and if he misbehaves, well throw him out or well stop the news conference, Trump said.
