WASHINGTON(Sputnik) — The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) are both conducting inquiries into who leaked documents about alleged US intelligence hacking operations to WikiLeaks, according to US news reports on Wednesday.
"A federal criminal investigation is being opened into WikiLeaks' publication of documents detailing alleged CIA hacking operations," CNN said, identifying "several US officials" as its sources.
"The officials said the FBI and CIA are coordinating reviews of the matter," the news network added.
