Could another trove of hacked emails surface before November? Dems fear the answer is yes

Democratic Party officials are reported to be steeling themselves against the possibility that another batch of damaging internal emails could become public before the November presidential election.

This concern is amplified by a report in this morning’s  New York Times to the effect that the last month breach was bigger than initially thought, exposing the private email accounts of more than 100 party officials and groups. Included among these were the personal email accounts of key members of Hillary Clinton’s campaign team.

Fox News notes:

The apparent wider breach reportedly has prompted the FBI to broaden its investigation, and agents have begun notifying top Democratic officials that the Russians may have breached their personal accounts, the Times reported.

An earlier release of emails just days before the party convention in Philadelphia cost Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz her job as party chairman, while party CEO Amy Dacey; chief finance officer Brad Marshall; and communications director Luis Miranda resigned last week.
