    Come on Pete, It became partisan when the first shoes were dropped about the spying on the AP and Jim Rosen with Eric Holder the center of the controversy. This is the same issue. Were warrants issued or as I suggested a criminal undercover operation? Shouldn't we call for an in depth investigation covering all three incidents bypassing Holder's stonewalling?

    The Justice Department has issued a categorical denial that they had anything to do with the breach. But whether or not you’re inclined to believe them, it’s far more likely that Atkisson’s computer was compromised by much more prosaic means, the same way millions of other computers have been hacked — by a virus or a worm that gained access via Atkisson’s own insecure practices.".

    With all that has come out lately on Obama's white house and with Attkisson's history it is far more likely our gov behind this.

    Nonpartisan is good. The trouble is that the bare facts seem to suggest partisanship is involved:

    Attkisson: Someone hacked my computer.

    DoJ: We didn't do it!!

    It all depends on how DoJ proceeds. Appointing a special prosecutor would be good. Investigating it themselves and then having the FBI slow walk it would not be good.

    Then who and where should this be debated? Oh, I know let's bury it somewhere people won't hear about it at all.

    So, someone hacked Attkisson's computer.
    and the Obama administration had reason to want to hack it.
    maybe.

    What did the hacker gain from all of this? If it was someone in the administration, what was gained? Were they able to cover something up?
    If it was someone else, who, and what was gained?

    I think the crux of the question is, what did the hacker get out of accessing her computer? From there, perhaps we could make an educated guess as to just who that person was.

    Of course, with this administration such a denial could mean they had nothing to do with it, but could just as easily mean that they simply chose to provide "the least untruthful answer" regarding their criminal intrusion.
