The House of Representatives’ Republican campaign organization was the target of a major hack during the 2018 election that exposed thousands of sensitive emails, Politico reported on Tuesday.

The email accounts of four top aides at the National Republican Congressional Committee were compromised for months in an intrusion detected in April, Politico reported, citing three unidentified senior party officials.

A NRCC vendor alerted the committee and its cybersecurity contractor, an internal investigation was started and the FBI was alerted, Politico said.

However, senior Republican House leaders, including Speaker Paul Ryan and Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, were not informed until contacted by the news site.

Committee officials told Politico they did not immediately reveal the hack because they did not want to compromise the investigation.
