National Republican Congressional Committee emails hacked during 2018 campaign


It turns out that hackers are an equal opportunity bunch. 

During the lead up to the 2016 U.S. election, much ado was made of the hack of the Democratic National Committee and subsequent publishing of stolen emails. 

Now, thanks to a report by Politico, we know that in 2018 the National Republican Congressional Committee suffered a security breach of its own. 

Specifically, email accounts belonging to four senior aides working for the House Republican campaign organization were said to have been “surveilled” for months. Yup, you read that right: The Republicans’ emails were hacked, too.
