WASHINGTON – U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), chairman of the Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee, sent a letter Wednesday to Attorney General William Barr and Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Christopher Wray seeking answers to long-outstanding questions highlighted in a recently refiled lawsuit by investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson. Ms. Attkisson’s original lawsuit was filed in 2015 after her then-employer, CBS News, confirmed that her devices had been “accessed and compromised” by unknown parties. Around the time of the compromise, Ms. Attkisson was breaking stories on the Department of Justice’s “Operation Fast and Furious” in 2011 and reported on the attacks in Benghazi in 2012.
