US election: FBI investigating hacking of Clinton campaign chief


US election: FBI investigating hacking of Clinton campaign chief
Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman, John Podesta, has said the FBI is investigating whether Russia was behind a hack on his private email.
Mr Podesta also suggested Republican nominee Donald Trump's campaign was given advance notice of the breach.

His remarks come after WikiLeaks published a trove of his hacked emails.
The top adviser to Mrs Clinton said the enquiry was part of a wider probe into hacks on the Democratic Party by groups with Russian ties.
"I've been involved in politics for nearly five decades," Mr Podesta told reporters aboard the Clinton campaign plane.

"This definitely is the first campaign that I've been involved with in which I've had to tangle with Russian intelligence agencies, who seem to be doing everything they can on behalf of our opponent."
The longtime aide to Mrs Clinton pointed to a tweet by Mr Trump's adviser Roger Stone in August that said Mr Podesta's "time in the barrel" was coming.

However, the tweet was posted shortly after WikiLeaks released thousands of hacked emails from other Democratic officials.
