Who’s Spying on CBS Reporter Sharyl Attkisson?

CBS News reports that a forensics analysis of reporter Sharyl Attkisson’s computer shows that it was the subject of multiple unauthorized remote searches by unknown external parties late last year. CBS notes that whoever was responsible took sophisticated steps to scrub any evidence of the breach.

Attkisson was one of the few mainstream reporters to seriously pursue the Benghazi story late last year. (She was also one of the few to pursue the Fast and Furious scandal, and she alleges she was rewarded for her tenacity by being yelled at and cursed at by both a White House official and a DOJ spokesman).

Who would have both the capability and the most interest in accessing Attkisson’s computer at the time she was reporting on Benghazi?
