AP Reporter: Hackers Have More Access to State Dept Records Than Public

AP Reporter Matthew Lee argued that hackers “have more access to the State Department records and archives than the American public and Congress do” during Monday’s State Department briefing.

“It seems to me a little bit unusual where we’re in a position where hackers from Russia, or from wherever they are, have more access to the State Department records and archives than the American public and Congress do” he declared.

Lee explained “they hacked your e-mail system, you had to shut it all down, and they’re still in there apparently…so they’re seeing stuff the rest of us can’t see.”

State Department Spokesperson Jen Psaki contested this, stating that Lee did not have an assessment of what the hackers had access to.
