Investigative reporter Sharyl Attkisson has made a stunning claim about the FBI that will both sicken and shock Americans.
During a hearing with several GOP lawmakers, Attkisson said that an FBI agent informed her that the bureau had intended to plant child pornography on her husband’s laptop during an Obama-era operation to discredit her over a series of investigative reports she filed while working for CBS News.
As she described in her book “Stonewalled,” many of her reports revealed details about the Obama-era operation to run guns into Mexico known as “Operation Fast and Furious,” with the ultimate goal being restrictive gun control legislation.
She says in the book that she was then targeted by elements of the U.S. government during President Obama’s administration in what she described as an operation to smear and discredit her.
During the hearing, a video clip of which was posted to Twitter on Wednesday, Attkisson made the stunning accusation:
One little-reported facet of my case is, one of the federal agents involved in one of the operations against me said that they intended to plant child porn in my husband’s computer.
This is the FBI. There’s been a case that’s currently in litigation, unrelated, in which an FBI agent has testified that they did that, they have done that.
It was not accomplished in my case, I guess the curtain was drawn on that facet of the operation prior to them doing it.
But imagine how you ever get out of that… They knew we had a young daughter at home and had allegedly conspired to do that.

There has been no independent verification of Attkisson’s accusations, but her case has been documented in the courts in terms of being targeted by government operatives.
In her book “Stonewalled,” she writes in one section that a computer expert managed to find a classified document had been ‘placed’ on her device in an obscure location where one would not normally look. She said she had the expert examine her device after she noticed it had suspiciously became ‘activated’ very early one morning while she and her husband were still in bed.
