Reuters reports that the FBI is actively investigating whether several high ranking Democrat officials' cellphones have been hacked. The Bureau believes that this attack, should it be confirmed, could be tied to the earlier DNC hacks and that of former Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. Details remain sketchy at this point -- there's no word on how many phones may have been compromised or their owners' positions within government. The FBI, the Clinton campaign and the DNC have yet to publicly comment.

We'll update as more developments come to light.
