CIA Paid Shadowy Russian $100K for Fake Dirt on Trump

CIA Paid Shadowy Russian $100K for Fake Dirt on Trump

"According to the @nytimes, a Russian sold phony secrets on "Trump" to the U.S. Asking price was $10 million, brought down to $1 million to be paid over time".

"I hope people are now seeing and understanding what is going on here".

According to US and European intelligence officials cited in the report, the CIA was wary of the Trump information touted by the Russian-as the agency didn't want to become embroiled in a domestic political controversy.

American spies delivered a suitcase with $100,000 in cash previous year to a murky Russian operative in exchange for unverified information on President Donald Trump, the New York Times reported on Friday, Feb. 9, citing anonymous American and European intelligence officials.

The US intelligence officials said they cut off the deal because they were wary of being entangled in a Russian operation to create discord inside the US government. "It is all now starting to come out - DRAIN THE SWAMP!"

The American spies ended "chasing the Russian out of Western Europe, warning him not to return if he valued his freedom", The Times reported, based on an account from the businessman, who is now said to have possession of the Trump "material" somewhere in Europe.

But Matthew Rosenberg, the reporter who wrote the article, emphasized that several United States intelligence officials said they made clear they didn't want the Trump material from the Russian.

He was eventually told by the Central Intelligence Agency to leave Europe and not return.

But an investigation was already under way in Washington on possible links between Moscow and Trump's 2016 election campaign, and the U.S. agents reportedly did not want to get involved in anything that smelled of the politics back home.

The Intercept reported that the "off-the-books communications channel" with Russian Federation created rifts in the CIA, which is led by Trump loyalist Mike Pompeo, but has many staffers still smarting over Trump's repeated harsh comments about the intelligence community's role in the Russian Federation meddling investigation.

Trump has also said he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin when he denies Russian interference in the election. "You can only ask so many times", Trump said in November.

An explosive memo declassified by Trump more than a week ago shows that top officials at the Federal Bureau of Investigation and DOJ used an unverified and politically motivated anti-Trump dossier to obtain a warrant to surveil Trump associate Carter Page.

Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russian Federation.
