Democrat Party worried another hacked email trove could surface before election

Democrat Party officials are bracing for the possibility that another batch of damaging or embarrassing internal emails, the kind that cost the party chairman her job on the eve of the Democrat National Convention could become public before the November presidential election.

That fear reportedly comes as officials with knowledge of a Russian cyber attack that targeted Democrat politicians and organizations told the media that the breach was bigger than first thought and exposed the private email accounts of party officials and groups including the personal email accounts of Hillary Clinton’s key campaign officials.

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

Washington, D.C. Under Life And Death Blizzard Warnings

The “major storm” bearing down on Washington, D.C., “has life and death implications, and all the residents of the District of Columbia should treat it that way,” Mayor Muriel Bowser said.

She said that the snow would arrive earlier than expected, with the first flakes now anticipated around 1 to 3 p.m. Friday ET.

The nation’s capital, though, is not alone in expecting blizzard conditions. The National Weather Service has extended its blizzard warning to include New York City and Philadelphia.

All flights to and from Philadelphia International Airport will be canceled Saturday, an airport spokeswoman said.

More than 5,000 U.S. flights have been called off Friday and Saturday due to the storm. (Flights Canceled)
