[jwp-video n=”1″]

Ahead of a Tuesday hearing on a massive data breach at the Office of Personnel Management announced earlier this month, White House Press Secretary Josh Earnest on Monday said it is “highly likely” sensitive personal data was breached, but would not detail the scope of the hack. “I don’t have any precise information about the scope of this particular intrusion or what data may have been affected,” Earnest said. “We know that it’s highly likely that some sensitive data was affected, but the scope of that data and precisely which data was affected is something that continues to be investigated by the FBI and DHS.”
