Today we interviewed Sharyl Attkisson, author of Stonewalled: My Fight for Truth Against the Forces of Obstruction, Intimidation and Harassment in Obama’s Washington. It was a great interview, conducted by Scott. Ms. Attkisson is very impressive. The interview focused on the intrusions into Attkisson’s computers which have now been analyzed by three independent security experts. There are strong indications that Attkisson’s computers (and, through them, CBS’s computer system) were illegally accessed by one or more federal agencies. This occurred at a time when Attkisson was pursuing news stories that were unhelpful to the Obama administration (Fast and Furious, Benghazi and others).
In the course of the interview, Attkisson announced important news: she has commenced two new legal proceedings against the Obama administration. One case, filed in federal court in the District of Columbia, alleges violations of her constitutional rights by unknown federal agents. The second–for the time being, an administrative proceeding–asserts claims under the Federal Tort Claims Act against the U.S. Department of Justice, the U.S. Postal Service, and unnamed employees and/or agents of the federal government. Ms. Attkisson provides additional background on the lawsuits here.
Here is the interview. I am confident you will find it interesting:
