    Regarding verbs and preposition

    I have three questions and three sentences please answer all of them or any if you know the answer.

    1.) Sentence: "I think the motivated leaks done by the ruling party with/through the help of its stooges in the channels, specially in English media"

    My question: Which preposition, with or through, would be right to use in the sentence one ?

    2.) "This whole allegation trading and controversy will/would come to a halt when he would be sacked"

    My question:
    Which verb, will or would, would be correct to use in the sentence ? Also tell which preposition, a or no preposition,would be correct to use in the sentence two ?

    3.)
    Sentence: "I'm ready to wager when the investigation reports will/would come there would be no incriminating proof against him"

    My question: Has the word when been used correctly in the sentence ? And which verb, will or would, be correct to use in the sentence three ?

    Thanks for reading and answering long list of questions.

    My question: Which preposition, with or through, would be right to use in the sentence one ?

    ... by the ruling party with the help of its stooges ... or
    ... by the ruling party through its stooges ...

    2.) "This whole allegation trading and controversy will/would come to a halt when he would be sacked"

    My question:
    Which verb, will or would, would be correct to use in the sentence ?
    Neither. The second half is wrong.
    You could write:
    "This whole allegation trading and controversy would come to a halt if he were sacked."
    "This whole allegation trading and controversy will come to a halt when he is sacked."
    Also tell which preposition, a or no preposition,would be correct to use in the sentence two ?Use 'a'.

    3.)
    Sentence: "I'm ready to wager when the investigation reports will/would come there would be no incriminating proof against him"

    My question: Has the word "when" been used correctly in the sentence ? No
    And which verb, will or would, is correct to use in the sentence three ? Neither.

    "I'm ready to wager that, when the investigation reports come in, there will be no incriminating proof against him"


    Thanks for reading and answering long list of questions.
