Al Sharpton An FBI Informant: 10 Things We Learned Of His Dime Dropping
Sharpton Maintains He Never Was An Informant
According to The Smoking Gun, Sharpton was brief in advance of his undercover antics, so he was well aware of the FBI’s investigative interest in the Genovese Crime Family. And while the paperwork is documented, Sharpton denies having ever worked as an FBI informant. In his most recent book, The Rejected Stone, Sharpton claimed to have once been “set up by the government,” who leaked false information that “could have gotten me killed.” But the paperwork shows that he was fully invested in helping the government detain, arrest and get rid of the Genovese family.
