Rod Rosenstein Accused of Leading Illegal Surveillance of Journalist Sharyl Attkisson for Obama Admin.

by Matt Margolis, PJ Media:

Journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who previously sued the Obama administration for allegedly spying on her, wants her case reopened.

Attkisson reports on her website that “a former U.S. government agent has admitted participating in the illegal government surveillance on then-CBS New [sic] investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson.” According to this insider, Rod Rosenstein, then the U.S. Attorney for the District of Maryland, was the person responsible for the project that resulted in the illegal surveillance of her computers and cellphone from 2011 to 2014. He left that position in 2017 to become U.S. Deputy Attorney General in the Trump administration—during which he had a very controversial tenure.
