FBI wants to know how long CIA knew about security breach
NYPOST by By Bruce Golding and Daniel Halper
The FBI is investigating how WikiLeaks obtained secret documents about the CIA’s cyber-snooping tools — and the White House said Wednesday that President Trump was “extremely concerned” about the stunning security breach.
It also emerged that the CIA learned late last year that its hacking operations had been compromised, but didn’t know the material would be made public until nearly 9,000 pages popped up Tuesday on the WikiLeaks Web site.
In a statement, the spy agency again refused to address the information’s authenticity, but noted that it’s “legally prohibited from conducting electronic surveillance targeting individuals here at home, including our fellow Americans, and CIA does not do so.”
