Former CBS News reporter Sharyl Attkisson is preparing for her oral arguments in her case against the Department of Justice and the FBI. Attkisson claims her computer was compromised by DOJ agents in late 2012 while she was reporting on the Benghazi attacks, Fast and Furious and Obamacare. She first sued the Obama administration over the unwanted surveillance in January 2015.
She gave her “layperson’s explanation” of the upcoming case in a recent video, first by identifying her team’s targets. Attkisson noted they are suing specific government officials like former Attorney General Eric Holder. The government, she explained, is arguing they enjoy “broad immunity” for their supervisory actions while in office. Her team will push back on that notion and argue that Holder “would have had to do more than just supervise these intrusions into my computer based on forensics” and therefore “immunity does not apply in this case.”
