FBI Director Cites 'Limited Penetration of Old RNC' Computers

The director of the FBI, James B. Comey, told lawmakers at a Senate hearing that Russian hackers had penetrated the Republican National Committee’s computer records, but he called it a “limited penetration of old R.N.C.” computer systems that were “no longer in use.” Mr. Comey’s statement was significant because the Republican National Committee has said it did not lose data to the Russians because of its strong cybersecurity.
