Journalists barred from ‘filming’ interviews with U.S. Senators in Capitol

Members of the Capitol Hill press corps on Tuesday morning were verbally informed that reporters would no longer be granted access to film interviews with the United States senators, unless they obtain permission from the Senate rules committee as well as the senator whom reporters seek to interview.
However, by afternoon, a spokesperson for the Senate rules committee clarified that the rules for journalists had returned to the status quo from the past, as reported by The Guardian.

The notion was communicated hours before a major Senate hearing involving attorney general Jeff Sessions, as the Senate inched closer to achieving a consensus on its healthcare reform bill.

Following the notification, reporters and leaders took to Twitter to express their dissent.
