Comments: Confirmed: Lee Franklin Booth is a Confidential Informant For the Feds

I'm not following your reluctance to identify the agency.

Given that Booth's identity and status as an informant is known, isn't it safe to conclude that anyone working with Booth would likewise be compromised?

Booth's CI status is under review, apparently due in no small part to his high-profile flouting of the law.

And that the "C" part of the "CI" marker is no longer relevant.

No official confidential informant for a Federal law enforcement agency is allowed to break any law except at the direction of the assigned agent and with the written permission of the assigned Assistant United States Attorney who is assigned to the particular matter.
