"Putin doesn't want his own people to think that if they spy on Russian Federation, that they could be resettled comfortably in the U.K. - as we've seen with the attempted murder of Sergei Skripal - or in the United States", he said.

White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham told the network: "CNN's reporting is not only incorrect, it has the potential to put lives in danger".

Smolenkov was stationed as a Russian diplomat in the United States during the same time as Ushakov was ambassador to Washington, official Russian documents show.

Former CIA station chief Daniel Hoffman said Wednesday that government leakers have "committed a grave transgression against our national security" following a disputed CNN story that claimed the CIA had to extract a spy from Russian Federation partly based on fears around President Trump's handling of classified information.

"If these reports ... are accurate, I think that really speaks to a tremendous intelligence victory on the part of the CIA", former CIA spokesman Ned Price told MSNBC.

On the different hand, Tag acknowledged, the exfiltration might presumably well be "a strategic loss for us over time, as we can lose those insights".

He said the alleged mole worked in the Kremlin and did not have direct contact with the Russian leader.

"I don't know whether he used to be an agent or now not".

Smolenkov's work in the presidential administration was confirmed on 10 September by Peskov, who noted that he never held "high-ranking, [presidentially]-appointed posts" and was later fired under an internal directive.

"His put used to be now not in the class of senior safe", Peskov acknowledged.

The official may have been a man called Oleg Smolenkov, Russian daily newspaper Kommersant reported on Tuesday.

Since then he has not been heard from, but real estate records show that an Oleg and Antonina Smolenkov purchased a house in Stafford, Virginia, about 40 miles (65 kilometers) south of the USA capital June 5, 2018. A neighbor who declined to be identified confirmed that Russians lived in the home and were nice neighbors, but had left the previous evening.

The agent was deeply involved in intelligence-gathering about Russia's efforts to interfere in the 2016 election, according to USA media.

United States media, citing intelligence sources, acknowledged the CIA's Kremlin informant used to be critical to the U.S. intelligence conclusion in unhurried 2016 that Russian Federation used to be actively interfering in the USA election in Trump's opt.

The New York Times reported that the Central Intelligence Agency initially offered to bring out the source in late 2016 over fears about media exposure, but he refused, citing family issues.

Months later, the agent relented as media inquiries about a mole continued.

CNN reports one reason the informant was evacuated was because of Trump's alleged mishandling of classified information that could have also led to his exposure. CIA Director of Public Affairs Brittany Bramell said in a statement that CNN's narrative was based on "misguided speculation".
