US spy chief says China 'leading suspect' in hack

The head of US intelligence said Thursday that China is “the leading suspect” in a massive data breach of Washington’s government personnel files, but that an investigation is ongoing. The comments from James Clapper, the director of national intelligence, were the first on the record remarks by an official implicating Beijing in the hack affecting millions of US government employees and others. Clapper told a Washington intelligence conference that “China remains the leading suspect” but that “the US government continues to investigate” the hack, according to his office, which confirmed earlier media reports.
