WASHINGTON -- The personal e-mail account of a State Department whistleblower was hacked, and four years worth of messages -- some detailing alleged wrongdoing at the agency -- were deleted, The Post has learned.
The computer attack targeted the Gmail account of Diplomatic Security Service criminal investigator Richard Higbie, his lawyer, Cary Schulman, confirmed.
"They took all of his e-mails and then they deleted them all," said Schulman. He said that he could not prove who was responsible for the hack job, but said the attack was "sophisticated" and called the targeting of Higbie "alarming."
