The FBI has found more evidence that the Russian government hacked America’s Democratic Party and the personal e-mails of political operatives, Bloomberg reports. 

The FBI said it has “high confidence” that the Russian government was behind the attack.

“This is an electronic Watergate,” House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters Thursday. “This is a break-in. And I think that we have to recognize what is happening here.”

Russia has denied playing a role.

Donald Trump even encouraged Russia to turn over any additional documents that may have been obtained under the hacks.
