This week, ‘Full Measure’ host and former CBS correspondent Sharyl Attkisson, accused the Obama Justice Department of secretly switching out her computer hard drive.
“Re: My govt. computer intrusions…What would you think if I told you the hard drive of one of my personal computers was secretly switched out w/another while in custody of the Justice Dept. Inspector General– before they gave it back to me? (Tick-tock.)” tweeted Attkisson.
PJ Media reports:
You may recall that Attkisson’s computer was hacked back in 2012 while she was working for CBS and reporting on the Benghazi scandal. CBS News spokeswoman Sonya McNair said at the time that a cybersecurity firm hired by CBS News “has determined through forensic analysis” that “Attkisson’s computer was accessed by an unauthorized, external, unknown party on multiple occasions in late 2012.”
“Evidence suggests this party performed all access remotely using Attkisson’s accounts,” McNair said. “While no malicious code was found, forensic analysis revealed an intruder had executed commands that appeared to involve search and exfiltration of data. This party also used sophisticated methods to remove all possible indications of unauthorized activity, and alter system times to cause further confusion. CBS News is taking steps to identify the responsible party and their method of access.”
The investigative reporter is currently “seeking $35 million in damages,” after the Obama administration allegedly spied on her computer.

When asked who and why the Trump Justice Department would be fighting against her for things the previous administration allegedly did, the reporter said, “I only know the names of the career attorneys at DOJ (same under Obama as Trump). They are getting orders from higher up. I don’t know the names of exactly who.”
Sharyl, why not publish the names of those that are fighting you? I doubt that would libelous. You're simply stating facts and I doubt that they would want the negative publicity. Sunlight always makes cockroaches scurry!
