In late July of a year ago there was so much concern that he convened a group of officials from the CIA, FBI and National Security Agency to focus on it exclusively.

Brennan was so anxious about the Russian interference, through hackers and those involved in the distribution of the stolen data, that he called the head of Russia's Federal Security Service, or FSB, Alexander Bortnikov, to warn him that the meddling could harm ties.
