Joe Lockhart, who served as a spokesman for former President Bill Clinton, blasted the Trump administration for pulling CNN White House correspondent Jim Acosta’s press pass.

In a tweet Wednesday night, Lockhart called the decision to suspend Acosta’s White House access an “abuse of power.”

The article goes on to state the following:

“The ‘hard pass’ that WH reporters [have] are used as a security tool for the WH,” Lockhart tweeted. “Reporters who are vetted are allowed access that most reporters don’t have.  Those passes are not designed as a tool to pick the reporters you like or punish those you don’t. This is an abuse of power.”

    This is easy: If anyone knows anything about abuse of power it would certainly be from the Clinton camp!

    Acosta lacks the decorum needed by a person to respect the WH. He has shown a pure disregard for the President.
