Sarkozy kept close tabs on Strauss-Kahn, says French daily

French daily Le Monde has reported that President Nicolas Sarkozy’s beefed-up domestic intelligence team helped him strategically leak incriminating information about Dominique Strauss-Kahn when the Socialist starting rising in the polls. The newspaper reported on Wednesday that thanks to a newly reinforced internal intelligence agency, the Sarkozy administration is privy to “intimate secrets” of rival politicians. In the case of Strauss-Kahn, Sarkozy’s aides recently alerted the press to the existence of a document they said would be damaging to the Socialist and former IMF chief at a moment when as he was polling strongly and therefore posing a threat to the sitting president’s re-election prospects.
