Albert Einstein. was alive till April 18, 1955 Stalin died March 5, 1953. Is plausible that Albert Einstein found out. He was against nuclear bombs being in the wrong hands.

Either an embedded spy, or some informant’s CIA handler.

I prefer to think it was Eisenhower. However, considering his position at CBS at the time, it could easily have been Edward R Murrow.

Who ever told the president.

Yogi Berra, if he was close to Moe Berg, who was a catcher for the Washington Senators, and a spy.

by the way, I recently watched The Death Of Stalin again, and highly recommend it.
