Judicial Watch Responds to Obama White House Aide Participating in Silencing of Journalist

“AGGRESSIVE” AND “BEHIND-THE-SCENES”

by Sharon Rondeau

(Nov. 21, 2014) — In response to the revelations contained in hundreds of pages of documents released by the U.S. Department of Justice to Judicial Watch, JW tweeted on Friday evening, “Hey @Schultz44 which journalists are you going to try to silence over the weekend? Or maybe you’ll plot to smear them?”

His tweet was directed to Principal Deputy Press Secretary Eric Schultz, whose emails exchanged with DOJ press aide Tracy Schmaler showed that the two were discussing how to “control” investigative journalist Sharyl Attkisson, who at the time worked for CBS News.

An email from Schmaler to Schultz indicated that Schmaler intended to speak with Attkisson’s editor and CBS veteran reporter Bob Schieffer, now host of “Face the Nation.”

Schmaler, a female, left the DOJ last year, according to The Huffington Post, which described her as “DOJ’s top flack throughout the congressional investigation into ATF’s Operation Fast and Furious as well as DOJ’s defense of the Affordable Care Act.”

HuffPo wrote a piece critical of the award-winning Attkisson, calling her reporting “shoddy” and biased while ignoring its own media bias in favor of progressives and the Obama regime.

On Friday morning, The Post & Email contacted CBS to ask if, in fact, Schieffer had been contacted by Schmaler or anyone within the DOJ with a request or demand that he make efforts to silence Attkisson, who had been reporting on Fast & Furious, which trafficked guns to Mexican criminals and resulted in the death of at least one American.

The Post & Email tweeted back to Judicial Watch and Schultz, “I reported on the docs you posted today re: Sharyl Attkisson. My website has been hacked and my phone tapped.”

A story from July in Politico stated that Schultz “is well-known for his aggressive, behind-the-scenes approach.”

Attkisson terminated her contract with CBS earlier this year and is now an independent journalist, often published at The Daily Signal.

Had it not been for constant hacking of The Post & Email’s website in 2010, 2011 and early 2012, the information it publishes would be free to the public and much more widely disseminated.  The Post & Email is one of just a handful of news sites willing to report on the forgeries of Obama’s long-form birth certificate and Selective Service registration form.

In December 2011, The Post & Email had proof that its business phone was being monitored and contacted the FBI, with no response ever received.

    Obama says he is listening to the people about illegal immigration and that is why he gave amnesty to millions. What a scam by Obama who lies as easily as breathing and eating; selling out the American people

    Question. . . .Why can’t the people speak through a web site- that the Tea Party perhaps, Judicial Watch, Family Matters The Patriot, Heritage or another? Honest hard-working Americans need to speak up with giving the Corrupt White House a message. “If you will not protect us, we will protect ourselves. Someone out there, please provide us a site so we might donate in numbers $5,00 to build a high-tech fence to keep out the terriorists, gangs members, illegal immigrants; the users, the criminals the corrupt who only want to hurt America. They want our jobs, our welfare, our over crowded hospitals and our over crowded schools bankrupting all of us.

    If Obama needs to hear the people speak, please someone with the knowledge of how to do this let the American’s speak; let us build a high tech fence to protect ourselves (hire Israelis to teach the citizens how. Put the sense on private property and protect America since The President and his corrupt lying White House will not.

    Thank you Sheryl Attkisson for being the strong, ethical woman you are; rare these days with what we now know for fact. . . Obama, the silencer, the black mailer, the corruptor, the enabling of low standards, low education, encourager of violence and corruption.

    Obama says he is listening to the people about illegal immigration and that is why he gave amnesty to millions. What a scam by Obama and his corrupt administration who lie as easily as breathing and eating; selling out the American people and their safety, their livelihood, their children.

    Question. . . .Why can’t the people speak through a web site- that the Tea Party perhaps, or Judicial Watch, Family Matters The Patriot, Heritage or another? Honest hard-working Americans need to speak up with giving the ” White House a message” to listen to the citizens.

    The citizens will now speak with money, their money to build a high-tech fence on private border property. “If you Mr. President and your silver-tongue talk will not protect us, we will protect ourselves.

    Someone out there, please provide us a site so we might donate in numbers of $5,00 or more given legally by independents to build a fence to keep out the lawbreakers- terriorists, gangs members, illegal immigrants; ISIS, Muslim Brotherhood criminals that our government enables to come across and hurt us; the users, the criminals the corrupt who only want to hurt America. They want our jobs, our welfare, our over crowded hospitals and our over crowded schools bankrupting all of us.

    If Obama needs to hear the people speak, please someone with the knowledge of how to do this let the American’s speak by donating $5.00 for protect us at the corders

    Sharyl was on to information that DNC Operative didn’t want released. My theory was that “Fast And Furious” was an early payment to Mexican Operatives to look the other way when the go ahead was given by DNC heads to start the migration to America for millions of future DNC members entitlement votes on taxpayer money. What a deal! We pay while DNC gains-how can you beat it! And it’s working so far, millions have made it through for free benefits paid for by the good ole’ American taxpayer WITHOUT PERMISSION and IN VIOLATION OF CONSTITUTIONAL LAW! Where is the RNC? They should be fist fighting in the halls of justice but looks like they are on the White House shuttle to the underground security lunch room! Another hard day at work. The only they are all fighting over is to keep the big paychecks flowing and entitlement packages running smoothly. Works for them-not for us. Time for change folks- a complete replacement of ALL entitlement parasites at the helm. No more excuses, pork, contract fraud, giveaways, sex scandals, hotel parties and hookers! It’s time for job cuts in DC baby and we want them gone-yesterday! The party’s over folks-conservatives are here and it’s payback time! We also want to recall the Democratic Party and stop it’s destruction of America and it’s Military and Medical System. There are sill empty rooms in our jails that must be filled with criminal politicians. Remove the Veterans you have illegally arrested and it will make room for two more politicians for Misprision Of Felony. It’s time to start cleaning out desks-prosecution is near.

    Another example of “kill the messenger” … thanks for hanging tough (until we all hang together).
