A former high-ranking CIA official has pleaded guilty to abusing his influence within the agency to direct lucrative contracts toward an old friend who showered him with tens of thousands of dollars worth of gifts. Kyle "Dusty" Foggo struck a deal in federal court, pleading guilty to a single count of wire fraud for "depriving the United States and its citizens of their right to his honest services." Prosecutors dropped 27 other counts and agreed to seek a prison term no longer than three years and a month.
