Central Intelligence Agency denies report over mystery Russian who promised Trump info

Several American intelligence officials said they made clear that they did not want the Trump material from the Russian, who was suspected of having murky ties to Russian intelligence and to Eastern European cybercriminals.

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

Since its interference was to help get President Donald Trump elected and odd actions occurred, we have Robert Mueller, a special counselor doing an investigation.

Flu outbreak has killed at least 63 children: CDC officials
Hospitalizations for this year's flu season reached the highest levels since HHS began tracking such data closely in 2010. Vaccination of children against the flu is a relatively new phenomenon that may help limit the pediatric toll, she said.


The Russian, who had a history of money laundering and ties to a almost bankrupt company that sold portable grills for streetside sausage peddlers - not to mention a mistress in Vienna - showed US intelligence a 15-second video clip of a man in a hotel room talking to two women.

The $100,000 was paid in cash in a suitcase in a Berlin hotel room back in September and was supposed to be the first installment of a $1 million payout.

The Russian took the money but never turned anything over.

The Times reported that, in the end, the deal with the Russian broke down last month as the Russian failed to come up with any of the sought-after NSA materials, and the Trump-related material was either already known or untrustworthy.

Bombing at mosque in Libya's Benghazi kills one, wounds 37 - residents
The blast follows twin auto bombings on January 24 outside a mosque in Benghazi that left almost 40 people dead. A military source told Reuters that the devices appear to have been detonated remotely using a mobile phone.


Fearing the man might have been working with the Russian government and purposefully providing false information to create discord in the American government, United States officials cut ties with the operative.

NSA officials were not available out of regular business hours for comment. But the newspaper insisted that the American spies were more interested in the NSA hacking tools than the dirt on Trump.

Officials told the man to either leave Western Europe or face criminal charges.

The Intercept reported that the operation created rifts in the CIA, which is led by Trump loyalist Mike Pompeo but has many staffers still smarting over the president's repeated harsh comments about the intelligence community's role in the Russian Federation meddling investigation. The Russian chose to leave.
