In emails, Abedin complains of 'Clinton berry not working.' Aide explains, 'We were attacked again.


In an interesting exchange illuminated by a hack into former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton aide John Podesta's emails, a staffer tasked with setting up Clinton's private email server discussed a 2011 intrusion that disrupted staffer emails.

In the exchange, Huma Abedin, one of Clinton's top aides, told Justin Cooper, who was the registrant on Clinton's private server, that her "Clinton [black]berry" was not working.

The email exchange happened on Jan. 9, 2011, just four days after an unknown individual used the encrypted privacy tool Tor to access email on Clinton's server.

Podesta's emails were exposed by Russian hackers this month.
