I'm not saying you should disregard everything reported in The Daily Caller but you should probably adjust your level of skepticism accordingly.

Except for the fake news story in the OP, it's totally not real.
It's worrisome that some people take certain stories as fact without bothering to fact check them. You end up believing a lie without even realizing it.
Although Russia has now reportedly given the spies the country's top state honor, the U.S. court complaint against the flame-haired Chapman and her alleged cohorts described their many spying blunders, leading to some embarrassing coverage for Russia's Foreign Intelligence Service in the Western press.
The National Security Agency (NSA) is conducting a counterintelligence probe at its Fort Meade, Md., headquarters in a top-secret hunt for a Russian agent, according to a former intelligence official close to the agency.
The former official said the probe grew out of the case of 10 Russian “illegals,” or deep-cover spies, who were uncovered last summer and sent back to Moscow after the defection of Col. Alexander Poteyev, a former SVR foreign intelligence officer who reportedly fled to the U.S. shortly before Russian President Dmitry Medvedev visited here in June.
Col. Poteyev is believed to be the source who disclosed the U.S.-based agent network.
NSA counterintelligence officials suspect that members of the illegals network were used by Russia’s SVR spy agency to communicate with one or more agents inside the agency, which conducts electronic intelligence gathering and code-breaking.
One sign that the probe is fairly advanced is that FBI counterintelligence agents are involved in the search.
“They are looking for one or more Russian spies that NSA is convinced reside at Fort Meade and possibly other DoD intel offices, like DIA [Defense Intelligence Agency],” the former official said. “NSA is convinced that at least one is at NSA.”
Some of the 10 illegals who were posing as U.S. citizens helped service Russian agents working inside the U.S. intelligence community, the former official said.

Trump's cabinet donated 11 million to his campaign, talk about "pay to play".

You're right, you are cracking up.
Corruption is always news. Get used to it. When or if the FBI ever comes up with anything newsworthy to expose Trump, we'll hear about that too. Heck, it doesn't even have to be newsworthy for the media to print a story on Trump.
On the other hand, it turns out that the entire Obama administration opened the door wide open for Russian spies and hackers in the U.S. and it's only NOW that we get to see all of the fake outrage because they can't stand Trump and they're rushing to cover their own a$$e$.
