WikiLeaks claims it will release CIA chief’s emails

Wikileaks: Twitter

(NBC NEWS) – WikiLeaks announced on Wednesday that it had “obtained the contents of CIA Chief John Brennan’s email account” and it would release the emails “shortly.”

This comes two days after federal officials told NBC News that they were looking into reports that Brennan’s personal AOL email account was hacked.

On Sunday, the New York Post published an article about a high school student who claimed to have hacked Brennan’s email.
