Sharyl Attkisson, the Emmy-award winning CBS News investigative reporter, says that her personal and work computers have been compromised and are under investigation.
"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 told POLITICO on Tuesday. "I
need to check with my attorney and CBS to get their recommendations on
info we make public."
Attkisson told WPHT that irregular activity on her computer was first
identified in Feb. 2011, when she was reporting on the Fast and Furious
gun-walking scandal and on the Obama administration's green energy
spending, which she said "the administration was very sensitive about."
Attkisson has also been a persistent investigator of the events surrounding last year's attack in Benghazi, and its aftermath. (Full Story)
