The following is a news analysis.
Thousands of you have supported the lawsuit to hold the government accountable for the computer intrusions on Sharyl Attkisson when she was an investigative reporter at CBS News.
This past week, the judge in the case made a ruling allowing the litigation to move forward to discovery.
As with past iterations of the case, the Dept. of Justice is expected to fight discovery rather than provide for justice. The agency is defending the guilty agents rather than holding them accountable. In fact, the Justice Dept. recently authorized a private law firm at taxpayer expense to defend one of the defendants, an ex-Secret Service agent who is a convicted felon in a separate corruption case.
Here are some of the remarks made by generous, free-thinking donors to the Attkisson Fourth Amendment Litigation fund:
She’s acting like a journalist is supposed to, unlike many in her profession. The Government is impersonating the Soviets version of government.
I used to believe in journalism. Ms. Attkisson is the epitome of the truth tellers I once believed.
100% support for Sharyl Attkisson. We need the TRUTH to come out, into the LIGHT.
There shouldn't be two systems of justice here in the U.S. Way to go girl....
America needs more honest journalists like Sharyl. The government is and has been out of control and folks like Sharyl work to hold them accountable.
I want Obama held accountable.
KICK CORRUPT SWAMP RAT ASS, ESPECIALLY RODENT ROSENSTEIN'S!!!
Hi Sheryl, I think we both know who is behind all this. I support your effort 100%, keep up the good work on your mission…. Go Girl…
Government corruption must be exposed.
The federal government is the biggest violator of 4th Amendment rights. I do not believe that it is too much too ask for some sunshine blazing on these cockroaches for all to see.
God be with you, Sharyl.
