Reports: Feds probing Clinton campaign hack

The FBI and the Justice Department are investigating a computer hacking of the Hillary Clinton White House campaign and other Democratic Party organizations, CNN and Reuters reported Friday, citing law enforcement officials.

The unnamed officials told CNN that the news organization that the hacking was discovered by private investigators.

The hacking also was disclosed to Reuters and is believed to be part of a widespread breach of Democratic political organizations, that news organization reported.

The Clinton campaign released a statement Friday saying no internal systems appeared to have been breached.

"An analytics data program maintained by the DNC (Democratic National Committee), and used by our campaign and a number of other entities, was accessed as part of the DNC hack," the Hillary for America statement read. "Our campaign computer system has been under review by outside cyber security experts.  To date, they have found no evidence that our internal systems have been compromised.”

The Justice Department had no immediate comment, Reuters reported.
