DOJ: We Didn’t Investigate Sharyl Attkisson’s Computers

CBS News correspondent Sharyl Attkisson said on a radio program yesterday that her computers had been “compromised,” and speculated that it may be related to the investigation the Department of Justice conducted on Fox News correspondent James Rosen.

“I can confirm that an intrusion of my computers has been under some investigation on my end for some months but I’m not prepared to make an allegation against a specific entity today as I’ve been patient and methodical about this matter,” Attkisson said.

However, according to Politico’s Dylan Byers, the DOJ says it has not sought any information related to Ms. Attkisson.

“To our knowledge, the Justice Department has never ‘compromised’ Ms. Atkisson’s computers, or otherwise sought any information from or concerning any telephone, computer, or other media device she may own or use,” Dean Boyd, a Justice Dept. spokesperson, told POLITICO on Tuesday night.
