Report Says Kim Jong-un’s Half Brother Was CIA Informant
It now appears he may have been working to supply information about North Korea to the CIA.
Kim Jong-nam was killed in the Kuala Lumpur International Airport by two women who smeared a nerve agent on his face.
Prior to his death he had become an outcast in the Kim family, living most of his life in exile outside of North Korea.
On Monday The Wall Street Journal claimed Kim Jong-nam had become a source for the CIA, meeting several times with operatives just before his death.
President Trump, who took office just before Kim Jong-nam’s death, said Tuesday he couldn’t confirm if the reports were true.
The president did say he would not have allowed the CIA to recruit him had he known about the partnership.
As of right now the reports have not been confirmed by the CIA, which has not yet commented.
