FBI investigating ANOTHER hack at Democrat Party HQ

The FBI is investigating another hack at Democratic Party headquarters after it emerged that donors may have had their personal details stolen from a campaign fundraising database.


Sources believe the attack on the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee (DCCC) may have been used to gather information about party backers, rather than to steal their money.


Cyber attackers set up a fake website for donations from what appears to have been a Russian IP address and then harvested donors’ details, sources said.


The hack is another embarrassment for the party after internal emails and voicemails obtained by WikiLeaks revealed how senior officials and powerful donors were biased against Bernie Sanders.
