Russia also hacked Republicans but leaked no documents

Post by *THE Ben Reilly* on Sat Dec 10, 2016 7:26 pm

Russian actors hacked the Republican National Committee (RNC) but chose not to publicly release the information, the New York Times reported Friday night.

The Times’s story, which cited senior administration officials, came on the heels of a Washington Post report that U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia intervened in the presidential election in an effort to help President-elect Donald Trump.

Documents from the Democratic National Committee (DNC) were leaked throughout the election by WikiLeaks. The U.S. intel community has already publicly blamed Russia for hacking the DNC and sharing the information with WikiLeaks.

“We now have high confidence that they hacked the DNC and the RNC, and conspicuously released no documents” from the RNC hack, an official told the Times.

RNC officials have repeatedly insisted that the committee’s accounts were never hacked.
