With the help of Judicial Watch, Sharyl Attkisson, a former CBS reporter and investigative journalist, has sued the Department of Justice (DOJ) for $35 million in damages after computer forensic exams showed hackers monitoring her work exposing the Obama administration for its corruption from 2011 to 2013. The DOJ has said it was not behind this activity, but Attkisson and her Judicial Watch attorneys have evidence the DOJ is connected to it. This latest lawsuit was filed right after Attkisson and JW lawyers learned the FBI was investigating the hacking of her computers but did not inform her of it. Read more about how Judicial Watch is working with Attkisson to obtain the FBI’s records on her.
Here’s what Tom Fitton had to say about Judicial Watch’s involvement in this lawsuit in this article:
“We are proud to represent Sharyl Attkisson, an independent journalist, who has a demonstrated track record of refusing to play the Washington media insiders’ game that covers up or covers over public corruption stories such as Fast and Furious,” said Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton.
