Politico first reported that the National Republican Campaign Committee, the campaign arm of Capitol Hill Republicans, was hacked in April and "the email accounts of four senior aides", including "thousands of sensitive emails" were exposed to the perpetrator.

"The email accounts of four senior aides at the National Republican Congressional Committee were surveilled for several months, the party officials said".

According to the report, no one at the NRCC alerted outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-WI), incoming House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) or anyone else in House GOP leadership. "I think you can draw from that".

Officials wouldn't say who was behind the attack but are said to privately believe it was a foreign agent.

"The NRCC can confirm that it was the victim of a cyber intrusion by an unknown entity", said Ian Prior, a vice president at Mercury Public Affairs, which was hired by the committee to oversee the response to the hack.

According to police officers, Mr Norwood's call was not the first one police had received about the Heerlein house. He alerted her that they've previously seen this local display, and that someone placed an emergency call over it.

'To protect the integrity of that investigation, the NRCC will offer no further comment on the incident, ' Prior added. The MSSP notified the committee, which launched an internal investigation and alerted the FBI, Politico reported, citing three senior party officials.

It comes after the high-profile hack of Democratic campaign committees and other prominent Democrats aligned with Hillary Clinton during the 2016 presidential election.

The hack was detected by MSSP, a vendor the NRCC uses to monitor its network. None of the emails accessed have been released to the public, nor were NRCC officials threatened by the perpetrators with such an action. The organization now believes the hack was from a foreign agent and told Politico that no donor information was compromised.
