- One defendant, a former federal agent involved in the spying, says he does not want my case to be dismissed as the Justice Department is seeking.
The following is an update on Attkisson v. Rosenstein et al.
As my lawsuit proceeds in Maryland court, the Department of Justice continues to use taxpayer money to defend the guilty agents involved in the illegal spying on me and my family.
Meantime, one of the defendants in the lawsuit is one of the former agents who has actually admitted to spying on me (and other Americans) while working under Rod Rosenstein at the U.S. Attorney's office in Baltimore. One of the other former agents being sued, a former Secret Service agent, is already in prison for other crimes.
The judge in the case recently invited this former federal agent to join the defense mounted by the Department of Justice on behalf of Rosenstein and former FBI official Shawn Henry, now of CrowdStrike.
The former federal agent declined the judge's offer saying that he does not want my case to be dismissed. Instead he says he wants the illegal activity to be exposed.
