Journalist Alleging She Was Illegally Spied Upon by Obama Administration Seeks to Re-Open Case

Sharyl Attkisson wants justice.

Published

Journalist Sharyl Attkisson filed a complaint to re-open her case this week, alleging that the Obama administration spied on her illegally from 2011-2014.

She originally filed the lawsuit in 2015 alleging that her civil liberties were violated, but the case was ultimately dismissed. Attkisson believes that new information that has come to light will vindicate her once the case is reopened.

“The plaintiffs first acquired the details regarding key individuals involved in the surveillance in August 2019 from a person involved in the wrongdoing who has come forward to provide information,” Attkisson said in a complaint filed in federal court in Maryland.

Attkisson also made a filing in Virginia, where the Fourth Circuit U.S. Court of Appeals affirmed the dismissal of her lawsuit last year. She worked as a journalist at CBS News during the alleged instances of illegal spying, and now hosts a television show on Sinclair broadcasting.

Attkisson broke the story of the Operation Fast and Furious scandal, an Obama-era program that ended up running guns to drug dealers south of the border. Her reporting on that case was a black eye on the Obama regime that allegedly put her in the sights of the administration.

Rod Rosenstein is listed as a defendant in the lawsuit, as he was a U.S. Attorney at the time. He would later become an infamous figure due to his participation in Russia-gate while serving as deputy attorney general in the Trump administration.

Attkisson believes that her 4th Amendment rights were violated by the Obama administration, and her electronic devices were monitored by the regime as she reported on issues like the Benghazi attack in 2012.

While President Trump regularly gets maligned as waging a war on the free press for calling out the fake news, it was really Obama who engaged in a war against journalism.

Obama engaged in an unprecedented crackdown on journalists and leakers, using the Espionage Act to prosecute them:

It’s hardly news that the Obama administration is intensely and, in many respects, unprecedentedly hostile toward the news-gathering process. Even the most Obama-friendly journals have warned of what they call “Obama’s war on whistleblowers”. James Goodale, the former general counsel of the New York Times during its epic fights with the Nixon administration, recently observed that “President Obama wants to criminalize the reporting of national security information” and added: “President Obama will surely pass President Richard Nixon as the worst president ever on issues of national security and press freedom.”

Still, a new report released today by the highly respected Committee to Protect Journalists – its first-ever on press freedoms in the US – powerfully underscores just how extreme is the threat to press freedom posed by this administration. Written by former Washington Post executive editor Leonard Downie, Jr., the report offers a comprehensive survey of the multiple ways that the Obama presidency has ushered in a paralyzing climate of fear for journalists and sources alike, one that severely threatens the news-gathering process…

And this pernicious dynamic extends far beyond national security: “Ellen Weiss, Washington bureau chief for E.W. Scripps newspapers and stations, said ‘the Obama administration is far worse than the Bush administration’ in trying to thwart accountability reporting about government agencies.” It identifies at least a dozen other long-time journalists making similar observations.

The report ends by noting the glaring irony that Obama aggressively campaigned on a pledge to usher in The Most Transparent Administration Ever™. Instead, as the New Yorker’s investigative reporter Jane Mayer recently said about the Obama administration’s attacks: “It’s a huge impediment to reporting, and so chilling isn’t quite strong enough, it’s more like freezing the whole process into a standstill.”

Attkisson may have another chance to receive justice as she pushes back against the unconstitutional practices of the Obama administration.

President Trump Says ‘This Election was Rigged and We Can’t Let That Happen’ at Pennsylvania Vote Fraud Hearing

Trump is still very much in this fight.

Published

President Donald Trump remotely addressed a hearing before the Pennsylvania State Senate in which he called in to give testimony.

“This was an election that we won easily. We won it by a lot,” he said to massive applause from the audience.

“An official was on this morning, on an important show, and said there was no way Trump didn’t win Pennsylvania because the energy industry was all for him. I saw with my eyes what happened, and he told me horror stories, absolute horror stories,” Trump continued. “So, this was a, very sad to say it, this election was rigged and we can’t let that happen.”

Trump continued on to make his case that the election was a sham and needs to be overturned to save the Republic.

“Anybody watching television the night of the election was saying, “wow, I was called by the biggest political people, congratulations, sir,” on a big win, and all of a sudden ballots were dumped all over the place and a lot of horrible things happened,” Trump said.

“I want to thank all of the people who signed affidavits and all of the speakers. You’re fantastic people. You’re great patriots,” he continued.

“Between the voter suppression and all of the horrible things that happened to poll watchers. We have poll watcher affidavits piled up to the ceiling. They’re all over. They were treated horribly,” Trump added.

The president described the regime of terror that was instituted against Republican poll watchers, who he said were treated like “dogs” by the Democrat riggers.

“This is not the United States of America what happened. I think everybody knows it,” he said.

Big League Politics reported earlier today about other encouraging developments in Pennsylvania, as a federal judge blocked the certification of the state’s dubious election results:

Patricia McCullough, a Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania judge, has blocked Pennsylvania officials from certifying the state’s election results.

The order came Wednesday and will delay certification until the court holds an evidentiary hearing on Friday, November 27.

The PDF of Judge McCullough’s order can be read HERE.

“To the extent that there remains any further action to perfect the certification of the results of the 2020 General Election for the offices of President and Vice President of the United States of America, respondents are preliminarily enjoined from doing so, pending an evidentiary hearing to be held on Friday,” Judge McCullough wrote. “Respondents are preliminarily enjoined from certifying the remaining results of the election, pending the evidentiary hearing.”

This comes on the heels of a lawsuit filed by Republicans against the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, Governor Tom Wolf (D), Secretary of State Kathy Boockvar (D), and the Pennsylvania General Assembly. It alleges that Act 77, the state’s mail-in voting law, is unconstitutional…

The introduction says: “Act 77 is the most expansive and fundamental change to the Pennsylvania voting code, implemented illegally, to date. Under the Act, and the mail-in ballot scheme it implements, any and all qualified electors are eligible to vote by mail, and no justification needs to be provided. As with prior historical attempts to illegally expand mail-in voting by statute, which have been struck down going as far back as the Military Absentee Ballot Act of 1839, Act 77 is another illegal attempt to override the limitations on absentee voting prescribed in the Pennsylvania Constitution, without first following the necessary procedure to amend the constitution to allow for the expansion.”

The Kraken is finally being released, and the electoral fraudsters cannot be happy about the implications of this information being known to the public.
