CIA Dismisses Report of $100K Payment to Russian Spy as 'Fiction'

The New York Times wrote on Friday that the alleged anonymous Russian spy, took the money but failed to provide the stolen material, nor did he come up with any dirt on Trump.

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

'My view is that not only has Trump been vindicated in the last several weeks about the mishandling of the Dossier and the lies about the Clinton/DNC Dossier, it shows that he's been victimized, ' Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch said on Fox News. According to a notorious dossier compiled by former British spy Christopher Steele and part-funded by the Hillary Clinton presidential campaign, Russian Federation has compromising information with which to blackmail Trump. It is all now starting to come out - DRAIN THE SWAMP!' Trump tweeted on Saturday.

US President Donald Trump shakes hands with Shane Bouvet (left), a Trump campaign volunteer who received US$10,000 from Trump to help pay for his father Donald Bouvet's (2nd left) cancer treatment, during their meeting in the Oval Office at the White HoWASHINGTON, Feb 10 - A Russian who offered stolen National Security Agency cyber weapons and compromising information on President Donald Trump bilked US spies out of US$100,000 (RM394,010) a year ago, The New York Times reported today, citing US and European security officials.

The CIA has categorically denied reports that they were fleeced by a mystery Russian who promised compromising information on US President Donald Trump. He wanted $1 million as payment in return for the tools and other information.

This led the United States spies to terminate the agreement because they did not want it to look as if they were trying to buy compromising information on the President, the Times' report said.

The newspaper's sources say that after that, the Americans turned down their deal, because they were afraid to become part of the "Russian operation undermining the American government".

"The fictional story that CIA was bilked out of US$100,000 is patently false", the Central Intelligence Agency said in a statement sent to AFP.

Trump has also said he believes Russian President Vladimir Putin when he denies Russian interference in the election.

"Cody Shearer, an American political operative with ties to the Democratic party, has been crisscrossing Eastern Europe for more than six months to secure the purported kompromat from another Russian", the Times reported.

The CIA declined the Times request for comment and the NSA wrote that "all N.S.A. employees have a lifetime obligation to protect classified information".

And looking back, it should have been obvious that the Russian never had any ties to sensitive information.

Multiple intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election in a bid to help secure Trump's victory.
