A scan of Michelle Obama's passport showed up online


The White House and the Secret Service are trying to get to the bottom of how a scan of what appears to be Michelle Obama's passport appeared on the internet. 

White House spokesman Josh Earnest says he can't confirm whether the passport scan and internal White House communications disclosed Thursday are authentic. He's declining to say who may be responsible for the breach.

Secret Service spokeswoman Cathy Milhoan says her agency is aware of what she calls the "alleged email hacking." She says the Secret Service is concerned whenever unauthorized information is released about someone the Secret Service protects.

The information was posted on the same site where former Secretary of State Colin Powell's private emails were recently disclosed.

Of course people on Twitter had some fun with the news.
