CIA Denies Report Over Mystery Russian Who Promised Donald Trump Information

I hope people are now seeing & understanding what is going on here. It is all now starting to come out - DRAIN THE SWAMP!' Trump tweeted on Saturday.

The NY-T's published its piece Friday.

San Francisco: US intelligence officials used Twitter to send "nearly a dozen" coded messages to a Russian spy who claimed to have in his possession the National Security Agency (NSA) data stolen by the hacking group called Shadow Brokers, the media reported. The Russian, according to the Times, also had promised compromising information on Trump. "Each tweet looked completely benign but was in fact a message to the Russians", the report said.

The Intercept reports that many involved in the "secret communications channel" between the USA 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.

Several US intelligence officials who spoke with the Times made it clear to the outlet that they were not interested in the Trump dirt but wanted the stolen NSA hacking tools, which were created to break into computer networks in Russia, China and other US rivals. However, when they delivered the $100,000 - the first payment of the $1 million deal - all they received was shoddy information on Trump and his associates.

Officials told the man to either leave Western Europe or face criminal charges. "If somebody comes to them with something of real counterintelligence value that shows that an American is working as an agent of a foreign power, then, yes, they're interested".

The CIA ended the arrangement with the Russian because of the security risk and the potential political fallout in Washington, according to the Times.

Trump has questioned the integrity of United States intelligence in the past.

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. The Russians are also particularly eager to cast doubt on the federal and congressional investigations into the Russian meddling, USA intelligence officials said.

"He said he didn't meddle. 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. All are purported to be Russian intelligence reports, and each focuses on associates of Trump. Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion.
