Clinton Campaign Hacked By Russians



After Donald Trump Put A Hit Out On Clinton Emails…It Happened, Sort of.

WASHINGTON — Computer systems used by Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign were hacked in an attack that appears to have come from Russia’s intelligence services, a federal law enforcement official said on Friday. – NYTIMES

Hillary Clinton’s campaign network was breached by hackers targeting several large Democratic organizations, Reuters reports.

The hack follows on the heels of breaches at the Democratic National Committee and at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee earlier this year. More than 19,000 emails from DNC officials were published on WikiLeaks just prior to the Democratic National Convention, casting a shadow over the proceedings.

Some security experts and U.S. officials have attributed the breaches to Russian operatives, although the origin of the email leak is less certain.

The DCCC is working with CrowdStrike to investigate the breach, according to Reuters. CrowdStrike also investigated the earlier breach at the DNC.

The FBI reportedly declined to comment on the breach.

FBI Denies Comment But Confirms Clinton Campaign Servers Were Hacked

(CNN) – The FBI and Justice Department are investigating a computer hack of Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in addition to its examination of intrusions of other Democratic Party organizations, two law enforcement officials said Friday.

CLINTON STILL TRYING TO SAVE FACE…

The campaign said in a statement that its internal systems were not compromised.
“An analytics data program maintained by the DNC, and used by our campaign and a number of other entities, was accessed as part of the DNC hack,” said Clinton campaign spokesman Nick Merrill. “Our campaign computer system has been under review by outside cyber security experts. To date, they have found no evidence that our internal systems have been compromised.”
The intrusion was discovered by private investigators hired by the campaign, according to one of the law enforcement officials. The private investigators believe it is similar to the Democratic National Committee hack, but federal investigators are still working to determine the scope and nature of the intrusion, the official explained.
