How a Russian Spy Reportedly Outsmarted US NSA Agents

US spies reportedly paid $100K to Russian operative who claimed to have dirt on Trump

President Trump has also refused to enforce sanctions on Russian Federation for election interfering which were approved by Congress 517-3 in 2017.

He reportedly displayed suspicious behavior like giving the organization already public information and data not about the NSA or Central Intelligence Agency hacking tools as was their stated priority but rather information related to the 2016 USA election.

Reached through a chain of intermediaries, the seller reportedly wanted US$1 million after quickly dropping his opening demand of about US$10 million. The report on the incident, which reportedly ended earlier this year, is based on anonymous conversations with American and European intelligence officials as well as the Russian.

But, according to The Times, after months of negotiating, including delivering a suitcase stuffed with $100,000 to a Berlin hotel room, the American spies would be "bilked" when the Russian failed to deliver.

The seller, who was not identified but had suspected links to both cyber criminals and Russian intelligence, tantalized the USA spies with an offer of the NSA hacking tools that had been advertised for sale online by a group called the Shadow Brokers.

Fearing the man might have been working with the Russian government and purposefully providing false information to create discord in the American government, USA officials cut ties with the operative. Instead of providing the hacking tools, the Russian produced unverified and possibly fabricated information involving Mr. Trump and others, including bank records, emails and purported Russian intelligence data.

And he kept pushing his offer of kompromat on Trump, including shady financial records and a sex video that the U.S. spies didn't really want.

The Times' sources said the intelligence officials did not want to be caught up in a Russian plot to cause problems in the USA government, and they were concerned about the fallout if it was learned they'd bought information about Trump, so when it became clear he wasn't delivering the cyberweapons, they cut off the plot and threatened the Russian seller with arrest.

The Russian took the money but never turned anything over.

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 Russian was told by the Americans to leave Western Europe and not return, according to the Times.
