Somebody’s mucking around with Sharyl Attkisson’s computers?

Well.  Isn’t this a thing:

Sharyl Attkisson, the Emmy-award winning CBS News investigative reporter, says that her personal and work computers have been compromised and are 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.”

Of course, one shouldn’t jump to any kind of conclusions: after all, it would be the height of stupidity for, say, executive branch officials to order an illegal, politically-motivated break-in against an opponent in order to glean confidential information oh wait.
