TRUMP AND SAENZ TRYING TO BAN THE PRESS - SUPREME COURT WILL GET THE CASE

Some years ago to keep me from covering an important press conference and asking the hard questions, Luis Saenz had an armed henchman outside the meeting area to keep me out. The law is clear, bloggers are journalists and have the same privileges.

My research at the time showed case law which found Saenz had the right to control who was allowed into the press conference.

CNN and Jim Acosta this morning are taking on the limited case law and suing Donald Trump for banning Jim Acosta.  The Supreme Court will take this case.  It will move fast.  The Supreme Court prefers that cases are fully developed before they consider them.  CNN has the resources to have this case before the Supreme Court in months, at least for a preliminary injunction against the White House.  We shall see. 

Watch carefully, as Chief Justice Roberts becomes the new swing vote.
