Pro-Turkish hackers hijacked ex-Fox News hosts' Twitter accounts and sent Trump private messages: report

On Tuesday evening, reporter Yashar Ali pointed out that the Twitter accounts of former Fox News hosts Greta Van Susteren and Eric Bolling appear to have been hacked by pro-Turkish trolls.


The connection, both Ali and The Hill pointed out, appears to be that both Van Susteren and Bolling are on the 45-person list of people President Donald Trump follows on Twitter. The hackers also released direct messages sent to Trump from Bolling's compromised account.

Van Susteren left Fox News in 2016 over a reported contract dispute. She moved over to MSNBC, but her show there was cancelled after only six months.

Bolling was fired from Fox last September after allegations surfaced that he'd sent unwanted lewd photos to colleagues.
