ACOSTA: "As to how sensitive this matter is, I will tell you in the moments before I asked the president that question in the Roosevelt room as he was signing that defense authorization bill. The White House press secretary, Sarah Huckabee Sanders pulled me aside prior to me asking that question of the president and she warned me that if I asked the president a question at this pool spray, she could not promise I would be allowed into a pool spray again. Wolf, this was a direct threat coming from the press secretary to me, warning me not to ask a question. I went ahead and asked the question anyway and the president did not respond. Wolf, we don't respond to threats and we are not going to be intimidated. That did ha happen prior to my asking the question of the president."
