A published report claims that the Rev. Al Sharpton is a former paid FBI Mafia informant.
The Smoking Gun, which based some of its reporting on a draft FBI affidavit, published the the explosive report on Monday.
The report claims that Sharpton interacted with members of four of New York City’s five organized crime families and even secretly taped some conversations using a briefcase that FBI technicians outfitted with a recording device.
The report claims that Sharpton’s recordings helped target powerful Mafia figures.
The site says Sharpton was known as “CI-7” to the FBI and began aiding the FBI in the mid-1980s.
FBI’s principal targets were leaders of the Genovese crime family.
