A manhunt is underway for a CIA employee or contractor who leaked classified documents to WikiLeaks, revealing the agency's ability to turn smartphones, TVs, and computers into surveillance equipment. The CIA and FBI are searching for the unknown individual, who would've been among hundreds to have physical access to the documents in a secure section of the agency, reports CBS News. In related news, Page Six reports Hillary Clinton's camp is investigating the source of leaked information provided to the authors of a book about her doomed campaign. A rep for Clinton, however, says details contained in the book are "flat-out made up." (More CIA stories.)
