“The WHCA is closely monitoring a ‘preliminary’ decision by the White House Press Secretary to suspend a member’s hard pass for 30 days. We sincerely hope this White House does not again make the mistake of revoking a reporter’s hard pass.  The WHCA has stood up to violations of due process rights before and we stand ready to safeguard those rights for all reporters who work to hold our government accountable.  We believe everyone should conduct themselves professionally at the White House.”

– Jonathan Karl, President, White House Correspondents’ Association
