Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “NYT bombshell: CIA gave $100k to shady Russian operative offering stolen NSA tools, Trump sex tape”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

The New York Times reported in a bombshell report on Friday the Central Intelligence Agency agreed to pay a shady Russian operative with ties to Russian intelligence agencies $1 million for promising to return stolen National Security Agency cyber-weapons and deliver dirt on President Donald Trump.

During a meeting with the Russian in a Berlin hotel room last September, American spies handed over $100,000 as the first installment of the $1 million payout after he agreed to return cyber-weapons the NSA had used to break into Russian and Chinese intelligence networks.

A few weeks later, the Russian began handing over data, the Times reported. However, instead of secret NSA tools, the Russian seemed only interested in delivering compromising information on Trump, his associates and supporters.

The Russian provided the CIA with multiple deliveries between October and December “almost all of what he delivered was related to the 2016 election and alleged ties between Mr. Trump’s associates and Russia, not the NSA or CIA hacking tools,” according to the Times.

That compromising information included an audio-less 15 second video that purportedly showed Trump with two prostitutes in a Moscow hotel in 2013, evidence that would seem to corroborate parts of the Christopher Steele dossier. However, as the Times noted, the video is “unverified and possibly fabricated” while the information about Trump associates was either unverified, fabricated or already in the public domain.
