Acosta popped up on CNN Newsroom with Brooke Baldwin once the briefing ended to state that “Sanders sort of answered the question” later on “where she said I don't think that's what we're talking about here, something along those lines, but we’re not really definitively answering this question, not definitively closing the door on this.”
In classic Jim Acosta fashion, he then inserted himself into the story:
When — if Congress were to start investigating news outlets, Brooke, we are then something less than the United States of America. That is just an appalling suggestion to come from the President of the United States and Sarah was saying, well, reporters shouldn't engage in opinions and so on, that, I guess, in her mind, amounts to some sort of fake news. But I don't think it's really an outlandish opinion to say that congress shouldn't be investigating news outlets, not in this country, Brooke.
