>> Is I want to thank all of my colleagues in the press and let's go back to work.>> CNN correspondent Jim Acosta heading back to the White House Friday after a federal judge ordered his press pass restored at least for now. The ruling, a rebuke that President Donald Trump for yanking the credentials after a fiery exchange with Acosta earlier this month.
>> That's enough, that's enough.>> Mr. President->> That's enough. I was gonna ask one.>> Judge Timothy Kelly, ruling on a lawsuit filed by CNN, said the White House had likely violated Acosta's due process rights. Reporter Jan Wolf is on the story.>> The ruling here was that the White House really didn't give Acosta any process at all, any opportunity to know the real reason for the revocation or any opportunity to respond to their stated justifications for removing it.
>> The judge ruled that Acosta could resume work at the White House while the suit is pending. Press advocates view the decision as a victory.>> The judge said that there has to be some standard for removing a member of the press' credentials. I think journalists would be concerned about anything that would make it difficult to ask aggressive questions, they've always felt that this case was a pretext for hounding Acosta for his aggressive questioning of the president.
>> I think you should let me run the country, you run.>> Trump has long nursed the running feud with the network, calling it fake news. He erupted in anger last Wednesday when Acosta questioned him about his rhetoric referring to migrants from Central America as an invasion. Acosta also asked about Robert Mueller's Russia probe.
>> I'll tell you what, CNN should be ashamed of itself having you working for them, you are a rude, terrible person.>> The White House later accused Acosta of putting his hands on an intern attempting to take away a microphone, releasing video of the incident experts said had been doctored.
The White House said it would reinstate his press pass. Trump said his staff is writing rules and regulations for press conferences, adding that decorum is his biggest concern.>> You can't take three questions and four questions and just stand up and not sit down. Decorum, you have to practice decorum.
>> CNN said in a statement it looked forward to a full resolution in the coming days.
