CBS Reporter Sharyl Attkisson Says White House Official “Literally Screamed and Cussed at Me” for Story Exposing Eric Holder on “Fast and Furious” Scandal

CBS reporter Sharyl Attkisson has been doggedly covering the ATF and DOJ scandal surrounding the gunwalking “Fast and Furious” case. And now she’s coming out with more details about her attempts to get information from the DOJ and the White House regarding the case.

On Laura Ingraham’s radio show Tuesday, Attkisson said she was “screamed” and “cussed” at by the White House while trying to get information last Friday, and that a DOJ spokesperson “yelled” at her while she was trying to get clarification on the case. And she named names.

Ingraham: So they were literally screaming at you?

Attkisson: Yes. Well the DOJ woman was just yelling at me. The guy from the White House on Friday night literally screamed at me and cussed at me.

Ingraham: Who was the person? Who was the person at Justice screaming?

Attkisson: Eric Schultz Oh, the person screaming was [DOJ spokeswoman] Tracy Schmaler, she was yelling not screaming. And

Wild Thing's comment......

I would bet that a lot of people around Obama get yelled at. He does not seem to be a stable person at all. His whines and bully attitude have been directed at all of America so he might be even worse behind closed doors, just a guess.

This "fast & furious" deal may just get media legs. I hope more than just one MSM reporter is following it. Maybe this will be obama's Watergate. Of course we have to remember that the MSM let Clinton walk on several of his "gates" including perjury and Communist China connections.

As Rush says the Whitehouse internal poles must be showing a landslide in the election next year. If sixty Senate Seats go Republican the Democrats will face the full rule of law for the first time in Eighty-two years. Some of the aids are looking around and realizing that what they have done makes the Nixon Whitehouse look like a single day at nursery school. They are seeing prison in their future and little else.
They are dangerous because they have cornered themselves. Without the full force of the Federal Government backing them all of the appointees who were behind Fast and Furious are going to face demands from Mexico that they be investigated and prosecuted.

Tom, I sure hope it does, it needs the media to jump on this. But like you said too about Clinton and all his many Gates etc.

T-Minus 52 weeks and counting until WE THE INDEPENDENTS, and I'm sure the GOPhers too, vote Dr. Zhicago and his Barcksheviks out of 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue!
