The Nation

October 22, 1985

Fugitive ex-CIA agent Edward L. Howard was paid $6,000 last year by the Soviet KGB for U.S. intelligence secrets, federal officials said in Washington. The officials, who spoke on the condition that they not be identified, said FBI agents had traced the $6,000 through bank records. The FBI agents determined that the money probably came from the Soviets because of "the juxtaposition in time" with Howard's alleged meeting with KGB officials in St. Anton, Austria, on Sept. 20, 1984, the officials said. Howard, 33, whom the CIA fired in June, 1983, after two years with the agency, was charged on Sept. 23, 1985, with selling U.S. secrets.
