Confirmed: CBS News’ Sharyl Attkisson’s Computer Compromised

After the news came out that the Department of Justice had been secretly monitoring phones and emails of reporters and editors at the Associated Press and Fox News reporters, including James Rosen, top CBS reporter on Benghazi, Sharyl Attkisson claimed her computer had also been compromised. Now it’s been confirmed; Attkisson’s computer was compromised.

Attkisson took to Twitter on Friday and tweeted out the following from CBS News spokeswoman Sonya McNair:

Attkisson was asked following her claim if she was the victim of some of the DOJ’s tactics. She responded, “Well, um, I’m not ready to fully speak publicly about some things that have affected me because I’m trying to be methodical and careful about what I say, but there has been an issue in my house and there’s been an issue with my computers that’s gone on for quite a long time that we’re looking into.”

She was also asked if her issue was related to the DOJ’s targeting of Fox News reporter James Rosen. “Well, I don’t know details of his — I only know what I’ve read but I think there could be some relationship between these types of things and what’s happened to me.”

Following her claim back in May, the Justice Department issues a statement:

“To our knowledge, the Justice Department has never compromised Ms. Attkisson’s computers, or otherwise sought any information from or concerning any telephone, computer, or other media device she may own or use.”

Attorney General is now under investigation for perjury following his testimony before Congress. He has already been found to be in contempt of Congress and a there is a civil trial that will be ongoing.

Attkisson has been key reporter keeping on top of the Obama scandals involving Solyndra, Fast and Furious and Benghazi.

I’d say that given the current track record for the Obama DOJ and the revelation of the NSA’s PRISM program, we can reasonably suspect who was involved in snooping through Ms. Attkisson’s computer. Now the question becomes, what will be done about it?
