Yesterday, news broke Sharyl Attkisson, a well-renowned investigative journalist, filed a FOIA lawsuit against the Department of Justice with Judicial Watch after she found out her computers were hacked from 2011 to 2013. During that time period, Attkisson was covering the Obama administration’s Benghazi and Fast and Furious scandals. The Justice Department has denied any involvement in the hacking of her computers, although Attkisson and her Judicial Watch lawyers say they have evidence that supports the contrary.
