More White House staffer emails have been leaked, Politico reports, this time from the compromised private Gmail account of an employee who seemed to handle travel and other day-to-day scheduling and logistics tasks. The dump, which was posted to DCLeaks, includes what looks like a digital scan of first lady Michelle Obama’s passport.

The fresh leak follows the release of a number of former U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell’s emails, which occurred earlier this month. The emails may be from a fresh hack, or could be let over from previous attacks. DCLeaks has been identified as a Russian-backed attempt to influence U.S. political processes by some digital security analysts.
