Al Sharpton’s cocaine drug deals have been denied in the past, but now a former employee named Robert Curington is collaborating the story, claiming Sharpton was greedy and “just wanted money.”
In a related report by The Inquisitr, a report from The Smoking Gun claims Al Sharpton became an FBI informant after being caught on video talking cocaine deals with a drug kingpin. Sharpton, on the other hand, claims he became an informant known as Confidential Informant 7, or CI-7 for short, because a mobster was threatening his life:
“I was not and am not a rat because I wasn’t with the rats. I’m a cat. I chase rats. I don’t know if I’m C-7 or B-19. I don’t know none of that. I know I was threatened. I did what anybody would do…other than a thug. And I cooperated.”
But The Smoking Gun claims the “idea that he (Sharpton) made the recordings because this guy supposedly threatened him…. It’s just totally crazy.” Robert Curington agrees, claiming that Sharpton is lying about the cocaine drug deals. Instead, Curington says Sharpton attempted to influence the undercover FBI agent with dinner dates and meetings because he assumed the agent was a drug lord.
After the third meeting, Sharpton supposedly was offered a drug deal of $35,000 per kilo of cocaine and the not-so-good reverend agreed. That’s when the charade by the FBI ended according to Curington:
“They sprung the trap on him right away. They got him. Al told me himself. He bit and took the bait. Once the snagged him he had no choice but to cooperate with them or face going to federal prison. Sharpton said they could do whatever they wanted with him after that. Because they had him. Either he worked for them or they put that news out there that he was into coke.”
From then on Al Sharpton’s cocaine dealing past was used to force him to wear wires and make recordings of vicious mobsters like Joseph “Joe Bana” Buonanno. It’s claimed Sharpton “was absolutely frightened about the job he had to do for the FBI” but he had no choice, and Curington says it all comes down to greed:
“He was like two people. He ran around trying to score money for his National Youth Movement. But you can’t be an activist and an opportunist.”
Al Sharpton has already denied Curington’s story about his cocaine drug dealing past. What do you think about the allegations?
