Moulton signs fellow 2020 hopeful Gillibrand’s pledge to not use hacked material

WASHINGTON — Democratic presidential candidate Kirsten Gillibrand says fellow challenger Seth Moulton has agreed to sign her cyber pledge not to use stolen or hacked material for political gain.

The New York senator offered the pledge to never “seek, accept or weaponize stolen or hacked information from foreign adversaries” to all 2020 White House hopefuls in April.

Gillibrand’s campaign said Friday that the first to sign on is Moulton, a congressman from Massachusetts. Moulton says in a statement, “Our national security is something that should transcend politics.”

Gillibrand’s announcement comes after President Donald Trump said he’d be open to accepting a foreign power’s help in his 2020 Republican reelection campaign.
