@TC: I couldn't see where the "down the river" part came from, so I removed it and added in "choosing to" from "ことになる". Also, it doesn't really make sense that spying now is selling out down the line since the sell-out is immediate. It would be nice to get a proficient user to verify the accuracy of the link.

Do you mean that you don't know the idiom "sell down the river"?

> "choosing to" from "ことになる"

I'm dubious as to whether that is a good match.

No, I didn't mean that, but only because I didn't know it. ;-)

OK, I changed it back to "sell sth down the river". Thanks!
