CIA Paid $100000 to Shadowy Russian Touting Trump Dirt and Stolen Cyberweapons

CIA Paid $100000 to Shadowy Russian Touting Trump Dirt and Stolen Cyberweapons

"DRAIN THE SWAMP!" the president tweeted.

The National Security Agency (NSA) had been negotiating with a Russian who had access to cyber weapons and compromising information on US President Donald Trump for several months.

Trump followed up with a tweet quoting the President of Judicial Watch, who had been on Fox News explaining how Trump had been victimized by the Obama administration's illicit spy operation.

The C.I.A. declined to comment on the story.

The cloak and dagger account included an assertion that the NSA used its official Twitter account to send numerous coded messages to the Russian.

The Intercept reports that many involved in the "secret communications channel" between the US and the Russian are unaware of what actually transpired in the operation nor are they certain if the Russian was acting on his own or on behalf of the Russian government and if he was making an effort in the disinformation campaign that took place during the 2016 election.

The viewing took place at the Russian Embassy in Berlin, according to an American businessman acting as an intermediary, which aroused suspicions that the man was a Russian operative.

The Russian, who had a history of money laundering and ties to a almost bankrupt company that sold portable grills for streetside sausage peddlers - not to mention a mistress in Vienna - showed USA intelligence a 15-second video clip of a man in a hotel room talking to two women.

Central Intelligence Agency spokesman Dean Boyd denied the story on Saturday.

Trump on Saturday referred favorably to the Times article about the Russian who "sold phony secrets on "Trump" to the USA", and noted the operative reportedly had drastically lowered his original price.

He actually tried to once, as he handed a short video clip showing a man talking to two women over to a Berlin-based American businessman who was communicating on behalf of the USA intelligence agents, but failed to verify it was actually the American President. Fusion GPS, the company tasked with the work, also took money from Russian Federation while the document was being compiled by a British ex-spy who was being given most of his information from sources with Kremlin ties. But the newspaper insisted that the American spies were more interested in the NSA hacking tools than the dirt on Trump. The rule allows for surveillance on the communications of every person who contacted Page and, further, the communications of all those who contacted people who contacted Page-going back five years.
