Attkisson: My Computer Has Been Compromised



by John Sexton

Reporter Sharyl Attkisson, who has been dogged in her reporting on administration scandals including Fast and Furious and Benghazi, believes her computers have been compromised.

Attkisson tells Politico "I can confirm that an intrusion of my computers has been under some investigation on my end for some months but I'm not prepared to make an allegation against a specific entity today as I've been patient and methodical about this matter." Attkisson believes the possible infiltration of her computer began in Feb. 2011 during her reporting on Fast and Furious.
While Attkisson refused to offer specifics about whom she believes is responsible, she did give a possible clue during a radio interview Tuesday morning. Asked if it might be similar to the targeting of James Rosen, Attkisson told WPHT in Philadelphia, "there could be some relationship between these types of things and what's happened to me."
As noted yesterday, James Rosen is a Fox News journalist who was targeted by the Justice Department after a leak of information from the State Department in 2009. The FBI requested a search warrant for Rosen's email account, describing him as a "co-conspirator" in the leak.
