NSA Used Twitter To Send Coded Messages To Russian Contact

NSA Used Twitter To Send Coded Messages To Russian Contact

Asking price was $10 million, brought down to $1 million to be paid over time.

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

"DRAIN THE SWAMP!" the president tweeted. "Each tweet looked completely benign but was in fact a message to the Russians", the report said. "You can only ask so many times", Trump said in November.

'He's been victimized by the Obama Administration who were using all sorts of agencies, not just the FBI & DOJ, now the State Department to dig up dirt on him in the days leading up to the Election.

American spies delivered a suitcase with $100,000 in cash a year ago to a murky Russian operative in exchange for unverified information on President Donald Trump, the New York Times reported on Friday, Feb. 9, citing anonymous American and European intelligence officials.

According to the Times on Friday, the Russian took the money but failed to turn over the stolen material or the dirt on Trump. The deal would also include stolen National Security Agency cyberweapons, according to American and European intelligence officials.

The man also told American officials that he had images of Trump hanging out with hookers in Moscow in 2013.

U.S. officials said the payment was meant to recover ostensible NSA data, and was abandoned after the Russian provided the USA intelligence with unverified and "possibly fabricated" information on President Trump.

In the end, the deal broke down last month - the Russian did not come up with any of the unreleased NSA materials, and the Trump-related materials were either already known or untrustworthy. He wanted $1 million as payment in return for the tools and other information.

He'd been busted for money laundering and his only business ties were to a almost bankrupt company that sold grills to streetside sausage peddlers, according to British incorporation papers cited by the Times. But the choice of venue for showing the clip heightened US suspicions of a Russian operation: The viewing took place at the Russian Embassy in Berlin, the businessman said. In exchange for it, the Russian provided unconfirmed and possibly fabricated data on Trump, as well as some information collected by Russian intelligence. The alleged Trump material was left with the American, who has secured it in Europe. The Russians are also particularly eager to cast doubt on the federal and congressional investigations into the Russian meddling, USA intelligence officials said.

USA intelligence officials say that Russian Federation interfered with the election to help elect Trump, and that it continues to use disinformation to sow confusion in the American political system.

The spy warrant on Page likely gave the Federal Bureau of Investigation the right to surveil Trump and his entire campaign based on the NSA's three-hop rule. The episode ended this year with USA spies chasing the Russian out of Western Europe, warning him not to return if he valued his freedom, the American businessman said.
