Congressional candidates that are running for office watch a video while standing onstage at the Democratic National Convention in Philadelphia, PennsylvaniaBy Joseph Menn, Dustin Volz and Mark Hosenball SAN FRANCISCO/WASHINGTON (Reuters) – The FBI is investigating a cyber attack against another U.S. Democratic Party group, which may be related to an earlier hack against the Democratic National Committee, four people familiar with the matter told Reuters.

The Kremlin denied involvement in the DCCC cyber-attack.
