Sue us? Sharyl Attkisson sends Twitter into tailspin with ‘Dear John’ letter from DOJ

Former CBS News Reporter Sharyl Attkisson lashed out at the Justice Department after receiving what she called a “Dear John” letter.

Attkisson, who made waves last month when she said the Obama administration could have spied on President Donald Trump, claims that the DOJ is withholding her “public info” and is daring her to sue them.

Attkisson was openly discussing the letter and her concerns with Twitter followers. The discussions shed some disturbing light on how government bureaucracy has become so powerful and burdensome, it’s almost like fighting a losing battle — almost.

The issue stems from hacking of her computers and devices she said occurred during the Obama administration.

She began a lawsuit against the DOJ in 2015 for hacking her devices while she wrote stories for CBS, which the network would not run, that were critical of the Obama administration.

In that lawsuit she said she “discovered that her computers and telephone had been ‘hacked,’ that an unauthorized party or parties had illegally installed software on her laptop computer, and that her confidential, professional, and personal information had been illegally accessed.”

Her fans were supportive.

And many thought the issue was caused by holdovers from the Obama administration.

For her part, Attkisson said the change of administration rarely affects deep-rooted issues within the department.

Attkisson left the discussion with a sobering thought and a direct message to those in charge:

Never give up.
