Hackers have said that they have released all of the Democrat US House of Representatives's personal information, including their private emails and information. The DCCC (Democratic Congressional Campaigns Committee) press secretary commented on the leaks, saying:
"As previously noted, the DCCC has been the target of a cybersecurity incident, and we are cooperating with federal law enforcement in their ongoing investigation. We are aware of reports that documents claimed to be from our network have been released and are investigating their authenticity" -Meredith Kelly
The former speaker of the house, minority leader Nancy Pelosi, commented on the situation in an internal situation, calling it an 'electronic water-gate', expanding:
"As you are aware, the DCCC and other Democratic Party entities have been the target of cybersecurity intrusions -- an electronic Watergate break-in..As of last night, a mix of personal and official information of Democratic Members and hundreds of congressional staff, purportedly from a hack of the DCCC, was posted online"
The Democratic Party has so far blamed the series of attacks, which started with the leaked emails of the DNC, on Russian hackers. Wikileaks founder Julian Assange has said further attacks are coming that expose problems surrounding presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
