The first lawsuit by a journalist against the U.S. government, over spying on citizens, needs your support today!
Less than 5 weeks before oral arguments scheduled for 9:30a Jan. 29, 2019 in the landmark case:
NEWS: Oral Arguments Coming Up in Attkisson v. DOJ/FBI
Before we learned how often our own government spies on American citizens, intel sources warned investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson she was likely a target.
Multiple forensics exams revealed the disturbing facts.
U.S. intel agency software was found in Sharyl’s computers. Government IP addresses—an undeniable digital fingerprint—remotely accessed Sharyl’s devices. The intruders combed through her files– including her Emmy award-winning investigation “Fast and Furious”– accessed her social media, monitored every
The FBI quietly launched an investigation listing Sharyl as “victim” but, oddly, never contacted her.
“Attkisson v. The Department of Justice and unnamed FBI agents” is the first case of its kind. The Justice Department is using your unlimited tax money to obstruct, rather than identify the perpetrators.
We now know Sharyl is far from alone. The 2016 campaign revealed alleged political weaponization of intel tools apparently used to obscure the bigger picture: shockingly common government spying abuses.
How this case ends will answer whether Americans have any way to fight back against massive government overreach. And can criminals be punished… when they work for the government?
The Justice Department continues to use tax dollars to fight Sharyl’s lawsuit. The court has granted Sharyl’s request for oral arguments. They are scheduled for Jan. 29, 2019 at 9:30a.
