In a comprehensive summary of the case at sharylattkisson.com, the reporter alleges that the intrusions began in 2011 while she was reporting at CBS on the massive government gunwalking scandal “Fast and Furious.” The government continued to spy on her computers while she was reporting on the Benghazi scandal.
Besides Rosenstein, the other defendants named in the complaint are Shawn Henry, Sean Wesley Bridges, Robert Clarke, and Ryan White.
In 2010, then FBI Director Robert Mueller named Shawn Henry as the executive assistant director (EAD) of the Criminal, Cyber, Response, and Services Branch (CCRSB).
Henry left the FBI in 2012 and now is president of CrowdStrike Services, the cybersecurity firm hired by Democratic National Committee to examine its computer network in 2016 after it had been hacked.
In 2015 and 2017, Bridges was convicted of corruption related to his government work, and is now serving a prison sentence.
White also worked as a contractor operating out of the Baltimore office under a group supervised by Rosenstein, according to the complaint.
In this capacity, White conducted work for the FBI, United States Secret Service, Drug Enforcement Administration and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, where he and others were ordered to illegally hack into computer systems, servers, emails and phones.
Attkisson alleges that “numerous other Americans” were also targeted by Rosenstein’s unit while he was the U.S. Attorney in Baltimore, Maryland.

Here's a very helpful timeline Sheryl Attkisson put together a while back:
Obama-era Surveillance Timeline
It covers the period of January 2009 through October 2017. It's not complete -- for example, it does not include the "HAMMR" and Bill Montgomery.
But it's still a very valuable reference source.

Isn't that the truth? I just did a Google search on Sharyl and I only found two articles from the MSM about her computer hacking within the first 5 pages of searches. One was an article written by CBS back in 2013 and the other was a follow-up piece on her lawsuit by the Associated Press back in January 2019. If there are ANY main stream media websites reporting on this, Google is doing it's best to bury them.
It makes you want to shake your head and wonder why journalists would support such administrations.

Half the government is dragging their heels letting these legal processes go forward.
I think letting criminals (like Rosenstein) spend their better years waiting to be prosecuted ... is a huge injustice for their victims.
Rosenstein should be locked up in solitary confinement until he decides he's ready for trial.
