John Kerry Admits It’s ‘Very Likely’ Chinese and Russians Are Reading His Emails

John KerryIn a Tuesday interview with CBS Evening News with Scott Pelley, Secretary of State John Kerry admitted that it is “very likely” that Chinese and Russian agents are reading his emails.

Host Scott Pelley asked Kerry, “Do you think the Chinese and/or the Russians are reading your emails?”

“Well, we know that– unfortunately, we’re living in at world where a number of countries, the Chinese and Russians included, have consistently been engaged in cyber attacks against American interests…” Kerry responded.

“The answer is, it is very likely,” he admitted. “It is not outside the realm of possibility, and we know they have attacked a number of American interests over the course of the last days.”

“It’s very likely that your e-mails are being read?” asked a shocked Pelley.

“It’s very possible,” Kerry said. “There’s no way for me– and I certainly write things with that awareness.”
