Hillary Rodham Clinton’s email scandal didn’t stop the head of the CIA from using his own personal AOL account to stash work-related documents, according to a stoner high school student who claims to have hacked into them. CIA Director John Brennan’s private account held sensitive files — including his 47-page application for top-secret security clearance — until he recently learned that it had been infiltrated, the hacker told The Post. Other emails stored in Brennan’s non-government account contained the Social Security numbers and personal information of more than a dozen top American intelligence officials, as well as a government letter about the use of “harsh interrogation techniques” on terrorism suspects, according to the hacker.

The twitter accounts being used to disclose the hack, @phphax (“Cracka”) and @_CWA_ are still online this morning, as are files purporting to be Brennan’s email contact list and call logs of Avril Haines, the White House Deputy National Security Advisor.  Assuming, for now, that these reports are accurate, I’m not sure what this will do to the brouhaha over Clinton’s private email server.
