Emmy-award winning CBS News investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who has been ferociously investigating Benghazi and Fast and Furious, says her personal and work computers have been compromised and the matter is currently under investigation.

“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 told Politico on Tuesday. “I need to check with my attorney and CBS to get their recommendations on info we make public.”

In a separate interview with WPHT Philadelphia on Tuesday, Attkisson told Chris Stigall that something peculiar had been going on with her computers since Feb. 2011, coincidentally the same time she was reporting on the failed federal gun-walking operation known as Fast and Furious and the Obama administration’s green energy spending.

“They’ve had many reasons to be angry,” Attkisson joked on WPHT.

When asked if the computer tampering could have something to do with what Fox News reporter James Rosen is going through, Attkisson said, “There could be some relationship between these things and what’s happened to James.”

The Justice Department monitored Rosen’s personal emails, tracked his visits to the State Department and labeled him a “co-conspirator” after his reporting on CIA intelligence about North Korea in 2009.

Attkisson said the DOJ’s alleged action taken against Rosen is “unconstitutional” and “illegal.”
