Hillary Clinton’s campaign was warned by the FBI last spring that they detected attempts to hack into its network, NBC News reported.
According to a U.S. official and another source with direct knowledge of the matter, the campaign didn’t grant an FBI request to examine its internal data.
A Clinton aide said the FBI didn’t tell the campaign that it suspected Russian intelligence agencies were behind the attempts. The aide said the campaign already took measures to protect its networks.
The campaign says although a computer system it used was hacked, there is no evidence intruders got into internal campaign networks. The campaign declined to comment publicly on the FBI meeting.
