FBI investigating attempted hack of Trump Organization: report

The FBI is investigating an overseas cyberattack against the Trump Organization, according to a new report.

Speaking on the condition anonymity, law enforcement officials told ABC News that the FBI summoned Eric and Donald Trump Jr. for an emergency meeting at its New York headquarters to discuss the hack.

President Trump’s sons took over the organization when their father’s inauguration. Eric Trump, executive vice president of the international company, would not confirm whether he and his brother met with the FBI, but said the Trump Organization had not been compromised.

“We absolutely weren’t hacked,” he told ABC News by phone. “That’s crazy. We weren’t hacked.”

The meeting was reportedly held on May 8, the day before Trump fired FBI Director James Comey. Officials briefed on the sit-down said it focused on a suspected hack of the computer systems used by the family company.

FBI agents were also spotted at Trump Tower during the week of May 8, according to the news station.

The probe comes amid an FBI investigation into alleged ties between the Trump campaign and Russian officials during the 2016 election.

The FBI declined the Daily News’ request for comment.
