So, Uh, John Kelly's Phone Was Reportedly Hacked Months Ago

07 October 2017

Unknown hackers obtained access to Chief of Staff John Kelly's personal cell phone, potentially as early as last December, three US government officials told Politico.

The suspected breach could have happened as long ago as December, Politico reported, citing USA government officials. Before joining the Trump administration, Kelly was a four-star Marine general and headed the United States Southern Command, until his retirement in January 2016.

The chief of staff is no longer in possession of the phone, Politico said. Kelly reportedly used the phone for months, before turning the device over to White House staffers this summer, when tech support staffers uncovered the suspected breach. It's unclear if anything was accessed on the device. The e-mails in question, according to Politico, include "nonpublic travel documents, internal schedules and some official White House materials", many of them sent by Ivanka herself.

The revelation about Kelly's phone being compromised comes as a shock, though he is not the only person in the administration to use a potentially at-risk device. Many functions on the phone were not working.

"Kelly's personal phone stopped working, and he discontinued its use", White House spokesman Raj Shah told Politico.
