BREAKING: The computer network used by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign was hacked as part of a broad cyber attack on Democratic political organizations.
The latest attack, which was disclosed to Reuters on Friday, follows reports of two other hacks on the Democratic National Committee and the party’s fundraising committee for candidates for Congress.
The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating whether cyber hacking attacks on Democratic political organizations threatened U.S. security. The feds involvement is a sign that the Obama administration has concluded that the hacking was state sponsored.
The hackers, believed to be Russian according to cyber security experts, gained access to the entire network of the DCCC, giving them access to everything from emails to strategy memos and opposition research.
Federal investigators do not believe hackers have attempted to infiltrate the Republican National Committee or the Trump campaign.
