Trump Administrative Leak Led To Extraction Of An Asset From Kremlin

In an exclusive revelation to the CNN, it has been confirmed that the United States had planted a highly converted resource, inside the Russian government in 2017, which it was successful in extracting due to breach of security on its end.

The ‘asset’ was actually of Russian origins planted by the US and its removal became necessary, in part, when concerns were felt over how President Donald Trump and his administration might have repeatedly mishandled classified intelligence and could contribute to exposing that covert source as a spy.

It was in an Oval meeting with the President of Russia, that Trump’s gestures might have created a sense of suspicion over improperly discussing classified information, that had compromised the safety of this asset which had been providing strategic information, right from Putin’s desk for a decade that has been invaluable to the intelligence-gathering services.

But with the extreme step of extraction, which is usually done in a sense of emergency, the CIA now feels handicapped of not having a suitable resource of that magnitude with the Russian government.

 While revealing details to the CNN after a long year, some American officials did admit that the secret removal of the high-level Russian asset has left the US without one of its key sources on the inner workings of the Kremlin and the plans and thinking of the Russian president at a time when tensions between the two nations have been growing.

It is worth noting that the US intelligence community still considers Russia one of the two greatest threats to US national security, along with China which stands aggravated after its tiff nearing war situation with Iran. Adding on another official in a state of anonymity has also mentioned that, “The impact would be huge because it is so hard to develop sources like that in any denied area, particularly Russia because the surveillance and security there is so stringent. You can’t reacquire a capability like that overnight.”
