DarkCyber’s exclusive interview with CIA professional reveals lawsuit planned for June 2020

Louisville, Kentucky

DarkCyber, a video news program, interviewed Robert David Steele, a former Central Intelligence Agency professional. Steele publishes books about intelligence strategy and procedures. In a conversation with DarkCyber’s Stephen E Arnold, Steele reported that a major lawsuit is about to be filed in New York City after a multi-year investigation into the practice of what financial specialists call “naked short selling.” The term of art means that an individual trades in financial assets without owning these assets or having access to the assets. The practice is a violation of US law.

In the interview, Steele said:

Steele’s investigation built upon research conducted by Dr. Susanne Trimbath. She published her data in her January 2020 book Naked, Short, and Greedy. Steele further asserted that the bulk of the information has been gathered by researchers supporting the lawsuit that will be filed by James Wesley Christian Esq., a partner at Christian, Smith & Jewel in Houston, Texas, in partnership with other New York-based law firms.

Steele also referenced a software system called ThinThread, developed by William Binney, the former chief technical officer of the US National Security Agency. ThinThread is an intelligence analysis system developed by Binney to convert raw data into actionable intelligence.

Steele revealed that a preliminary report has been delivered to the White House and the matter has been brought to the attention of President Donald J. Trump. Steele also announced in the interview that a new Web site focused on the topic of naked short selling is now open to the public: (
