Hillary Clinton’s campaign was warned by the FBI last spring that they detected attempts to hack into its network, NBC News reported.
According to a U.S. official and another source with direct knowledge of the matter, the campaign didn’t grant an FBI request to examine its internal data.
A Clinton aide said the FBI didn’t tell the campaign that it suspected Russian intelligence agencies were behind the attempts. The aide said the campaign already took measures to protect its networks.
The campaign says although a computer system it used was hacked, there is no evidence intruders got into internal campaign networks. The campaign declined to comment publicly on the FBI meeting.

Fire officials say a wildfire burning near California's dramatic Big Sur coast has destroyed 57 homes and is threatening 2,000 more — and it's causing huge plumes of smoke to settle in the South Bay.
Off 101, the thick smoke caused air quality concerns.
"Obviously, it's closer so they're more impacted," said Kristine Roselius, a representative from the Bay Area Quality Management District, on the South Bay's smokey surroundings. "It's also moving the smoke east and also north, and that's why we're seeing the impacts there right now."

Michael Phelps is a household name. In the next month, Simone Biles may become one.
Phelps, who with 22 medals is the most decorated Olympian of all time, has dominated four Olympics and come out of retirement in hopes of sweeping a fifth. It's likely to be his final Games.
Biles is on the other end of her career. The 19-year-old gymnast heads into her first Olympics with 14 world championship medals under her belt, 10 of them gold. The budding superstar is undefeated in the all-around and has been called "unbeatable" by gymnastics legend Mary Lou Retton.
Phelps and Biles are among more than 550 athletes who will represent Team USA in Rio, including 292 women, the most in Olympic history to ever compete for a single country. Of Team USA's 68 returning champions, 53 are looking to defend titles won during the 2012 London Games.
Here's a look at the American athletes to watch during the 2016 Rio Olympics.

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump blasted activist brothers, Charles and David Koch, saying he “turned down” a meeting request with them, NBC News reported.
Trump made the comment in a tweet, which came after Politico reported Friday that Trump's finance team asked for a meeting but that the request was denied by the Koch organization. Trump held two rallies in Colorado Friday, including one in Colorado Springs.
But officials with Freedom Works, the Koch’s political arm, said they requested no meeting.
"We are not engaging in the presidential," said James Davis, a spokesman for Freedom Partners.
Staying out of presidential politics is a change for the network. It spent $400 million in the last presidential election cycle and planned to spend $300 million in 2016.
