In some of their more classy actions, spokespeople at both the White House and the Department of Justice have both cursed and yelled at CBS New’s Sharyl Attkisson. This was in response to her asking questions about the latest documents released and Attorney General Eric Holder’s testimony before the House Judiciary Committee in May.
Attkisson divulged their behavior in an interview with Laura Ingraham on Ingraham’s radio show today.
Tracy Schmaler is the Director of the Office of Public Affairs at the Justice Department and earlier in the decade worked for Sen. Pat Leahy (D-VT) at the Senate Judiciary Committee. She refused to put any clarifying information about Holder’s testimony on paper and continually yelled at Attkisson on the phone.
At the White House, Eric Schultz is the Associate Communications Director and is the one who not only screamed at Attkisson but cursed her as well.
This sort of behavior on the part of spokespeople for Holder and Obama indicates to me a high level of fear on their part. It is like a dog that is a fear biter – they don’t bite out of aggression but rather as a fear response. You have to wonder if it is because the truth is starting to emerge and it is much uglier than we could ever have imagined.
