That was a reply to the OP's useless speculation. The explanation for him resigning I heard was that any CIA operative that had blackmail material out there was considered compromised and a lower-ranking operative would get canned for this so he was holding himself to the same standard. I don't know about all of that myself and it's certainly not blackmail material if everyone knows it happened but it's certainly true that high-level government appointees get fired over scandals.
