RUSSIA has virtually declared war on America by hacking the US Treasury in a sophisticated cyber-attack, according to a senior Democrat.

Senator Dick Durbin warned that the massive Russian hack on the US was an aggressive move that may have compromised Trump.

Senator Durbin’s comments come after hackers believed to be acting on behalf of the Russian foreign intelligence service SVR breached and stole data from the US government.

Agencies were affected within the Treasury Department and the U.S. Department of Commerce, prompting an emergency National Security Meeting on Saturday.

Senator Durbin said on CNN: “Let’s put it on the line here. We need an honest reset in terms of relationships between the United States and Russia.

“We can’t be buddies with Vladimir Putin and at the same time having him making this kind of cyberattack on America. This is virtually a declaration of war by Russia on the United States and we should take that seriously.”

It is believed that during the cyber attack, the “sophisticated” hackers also had free access to email systems, reports said.

It remains unclear if the systems contained highly classified material – and sources told The New York Times that the motive behind hacking the agencies was also uncertain.

The outlet reported that the attack appears to be the largest on federal systems in the past five years and officials only became aware of it in recent weeks.

Senator Durbin went on to say he believes that Trump is completely compromised by the invasive cyber attack and his relationship with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

“On one hand, we knew what the Russians were doing for the past four years and how they put America’s security completely at risk, and what it means to our own personal privacy, and the President with his arm around the shoulders of Vladimir Putin as if to call him his best friend, so we can’t have that kind of dichotomy between policy and reality.”
