    https://nypost.com/2018/02/09/us-spies-reportedly-paid-100k-to-russian-operative-who-claimed-to-have-dirt-on-trump/

    US intelligence paid $100,000 to a shady Russian operative who pocketed the dough and took off without coming through with a promised goldmine of espionage assets – including alleged dirt on President Trump, according to a sensational report on Friday.

    The Russian last year got 10 percent of a $1 million deal that was supposed to include stolen National Security Agency tools used for hacking and purported images of Trump consorting with hookers in Moscow, US and European intelligence sources told the New York Times.


    The lengths US intelligence went to cultivate the ultimately bad source were both laughable and straight out of paperback spy novels.

    The US worked through an American businessman in Germany, to maintain deniability, and set up meetings in five-star Berlin hotels and tracked the Russian’s travels throughout Europe – including visits to his mistress in Vienna.
    ------------------------

    Not only are some of our intelligence agents crooked political motivated hacks hoping they could hurt Trump but many seem to be incompetent also just like James Comey.

        Wow. The Obama administration trying to swing the election to Hillary through the intelligence agencies of both the US and Russia? Beyond filthy dirty. So many crimes contained in that one question, if the article is accurate.

          Yeah but this was collusion to stop the collusion that they believed might occur in the future. Totally different thing.

            Sort of a minority report action?

            It is anticipatory anti-collusion collusion.

              It is all starting to make sense. Certainly, Hillary's preference would have been to have the US government pay to develop lies about Trump rather than to spend campaign dollars hard won by promising various favors to fat cars and corruptocrats.
