Director of National Intelligence James Clapper announces that there is evidence of foreign attempts to infiltrate the digital operations of presidential campaigns and that the FBI and Homeland Security have sent experts to help protect the Sanders, Clinton, and Trump campaigns.

“We’re aware that campaigns and related organizations and individuals are targeted by actors with a variety of motivations — from philosophical differences to espionage — and capabilities from defacements to intrusions,” Brian P. Hale, Clapper’s spokesman, said in a statement.

Hale would not discuss specific incidents and it’s not known whether digital spying on campaigns has compromised sensitive information about the candidates or U.S. policy.
