Former CBS News Correspondent Sues Justice Department Over Alleged Hacking

A former CBS News correspondent is suing the Justice Department for $35 million, claiming the federal government hacked her computers while she reported on important national and international issues, Politico.com reports.

“There is an administrative claim for illegal wiretapping and a lawsuit alleging constitutional violations,” Sharyl Attkisson told POLITICO on Monday.

Attkisson told Fox News she had “pretty good evidence” that the Justice Department played a role in stealing her data and passwords.

Attkisson spent more than two decades at CBS before departing because of what she considered liberal bias.

The Justice Department declined any involvement in the hacking, standing behind it’s 2013 statement: “To our knowledge, the Justice Department has never compromised Ms. Attkisson’s computers, or otherwise sought any information from or concerning any telephone, computer or other media device she may own or use.”
