Alarming: White House Chief of Staff John Kelly’s personal phone reportedly hacked

The cellphone of White House Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly was reportedly hacked as far back as 2016.

The breach was discovered this summer when Kelly gave his personal phone to White House IT staff because it was not functioning properly, unnamed government sources told Politico on Thursday.

IT staff inspected the phone for days before determining that it had been compromised.

White House officials maintain that Gen. Kelly used his government issued phone for official communications and has not used the hacked phone since it stopped working.

“Last December, Gen. Kelly’s personal phone stopped working, and he discontinued its use,” White House spokesman Raj Shah told Politico.

The White House did not confirm nor deny Politico’s report to Fox News and is calling the issue a security matter.

Social media had ideas on who the perpetrators of the attack might be.
