Video released Friday by the Crown showed the moment Delisle cracked under questioning by an RCMP officer in a windowless, grey panelled room on Jan. 13, 2012.Slumped in a chair and wearing a blue hoodie and jeans, Delisle finally confesses to RCMP officer Jim Moffatt, who patiently reveals that they have been monitoring his email and have screen grabs showing communications with his Russian agent."So you know Jeff, we have you, OK — you're so caught Jeff, you wouldn't believe it," Moffat says to him. "There is always a reason why people do a thing they do."At that point, Delisle crumbles and describes how he felt dead after discovering that his wife of 19 years cheated on him twice."I am so dead. I...everyone, my wife, that I loved for so long, killed me...killed me," he said in a thin voice. "And the pain of her betrayal and the pain she put my children through killed me."Delisle, a father of four, said he wanted to commit suicide but couldn't leave his four children. So, he told the officer, he "committed professional suicide" by turning himself over to the Russians.In the end, Delisle divulged how he walked into the Russian Embassy in Ottawa in 2007 and spent years funnelling classified data to them for monthly payments of about $3,000.
