FBI investigating possible hack of Clinton campaign


Hillary Clinton’s campaign was reportedly breached as part of a widepsread cyberattack on Democrats, Reuters reported Friday. 

Clinton is the latest casualty in a hack that targeted the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, both involved in electing Democratic candidates to office. 

Clinton’s campaign did not respond to an immediate request for comment, according to Reuters. According to CNN, the hack was discovered by private investigators hired by the campaign. 

A federal law enforcement official told the New York Times that the attack appeared “to have come from Russia’s intelligence services.”

The FBI said in a statement it is investigating the latest potential hack.

“The FBI is aware of media reporting on cyber intrusions involving multiple political entities, and is working to determine the accuracy, nature and scope of these matters. The cyber threat environment continues to evolve as cyber actors target all sectors and their data,” the FBI said. “The FBI takes seriously any allegations of intrusions, and we will continue to hold accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace.”
