Former Emmy-award winning investigative reporter and substitute CBS-anchor Sharyl Attkisson and her family are suing the Obama Administration over the apparently government-sponsored bugging of her computer.
Specifically named in the lawsuit are former Attorney General Eric Holder, former Postmaster General Patrick R. Donahoe, the U.S. Justice Department and the Postal Service.
She is asking for $35 million.
She says that three separate computer forensic exams showed that hackers used sophisticated methods to monitor here work between 2011 and 2013 while at CBS. She says she has “pretty good evidence” that these efforts were connected to the Justice Department.
This is a rather serious and scary scandal. You would think she would be a household name at this point.
Ms. Attkission resigned form CBS in 2014 saying the network tried to stifle investigations into Obama Administration scandals.
