CNN may be prepping a lawsuit against the White House after they suspended reporter Jim Acosta's press pass, according to Sam Donaldson.
Acosta has disputed the accusation claiming he never put his hands on the young woman.
Saturday Night Live tackled the recent controversy over the removal of CNN'sJim Acosta's credentials on "Weekend Update", as a "White House intern" appeared on the show and snatched co-anchor Colin Jost's pencil.

A frame-by-frame comparison of the video shows that Sander's clip has been edited to speed up Acosta's arm movement as he touches the woman's arm. "He thinks he's the Rosa Parks of the press corps".

"The government can not exclude reporters from [the White House] due to their views", said Jaffer. It would be intolerable to let this kind of thing go unchallenged. President Trump repeatedly tried to move on to another reporter.
Journalists have been widely supportive of Acosta since Trump pushed him out last week.
"At this point, though, even the White House Correspondents' Association has not threatened a walkout", Rutenberg writes, seeming to suggest such a strategy.
"They don't need to cover a man who is picking fights with them for the goal of turning out his base", [the Democratic strategist] said.
The press conference started to devolve, however, when Acosta challenged President Trump on characterizing the migrant caravan as invaders.
The White House has never before revoked a "hard pass" as a effect of a reporter doing his or her job.
"I'm sorry, you can't take my pencil, I'm sorry, is this the White-" he begins as she slowly lowers herself behind the desk while still trying to take the pencil.
