From that link:
For now, it's not clear from the FBI's statement which part is inaccurate: the specific payment amount or its involvement entirely.
So really, they're just trying to save face. It likely happened, but the news misses enough details for them to say "that exact thing you are talking about didn't happen." Considering how many of these types of things the FBI has done with impunity, I don't know why they even bother denying it. There is probably a large enough "for the children" voting bloc to keep this type of illegal activity going strong for generations to come.
