FBI Investigating Democratic National Convention Email Hack

The Federal Bureau of Investigation is investigating the leaked emails from the Democratic National Committee that were posted online last week.

“The FBI is investigating a cyber intrusion involving the DNC and are working to determine the nature and scope of the matter,” read a statement from the FBI. “A compromise of this nature is something we take very seriously, and the FBI will continue to investigate and hold accountable those who pose a threat in cyberspace.”

The release of nearly 20,000 emails from top DNC aides include at least a year and four months of communications from top officials such as chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz.

The cyber-intrusion has been attributed to Russian hackers.

Wasserman Schultz announced that she would step down after the convention.
