And the news just doesn’t get any better for Democrats:

According to Reuters, this hack of the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee might be related to the earlier hack of the Democratic National Committee. The FBI is investigating:

A committee that raises money for Democratic candidates for the U.S. House of Representatives confirmed on Friday it had been hacked in an intrusion possibly linked to Russian hackers, similar to an earlier breach targeting another Democratic Party group.

In an incident that escalated concerns about the potential for Russian meddling in U.S. politics, Reuters first reported on Thursday that the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation is probing the hack at the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, or DCCC.

As this is the committee that specifically raises money for congressional candidates, donor information as could be at risk.

Lawmakers will be briefed on this latest security breach:
