Davis, whose office keys Cosko used to access Hassan’s office after being fired, allegedly did not give Cosko permission to use the keys the first time but later loaned him the keys and agreed to wipe his fingerprints from office computers, according to Politico.

Cosko initially intended to harass his former colleagues, who he held responsible for his firing, but has admitted he eventually used the data to publish the personal information during Kavanaugh’s hearings, according to the publication.

“Senator Hassan appreciates the work of Capitol Police and the U.S. Attorney’s Office in pursuing justice in this case," Hassan's communications director Aaron Jacobs told The Hill in a statement.

A spokesperson for Spanberger told The Hill the congresswoman's office could not comment on internal staffing matters.
