Yes, it is. However, as the Secret Committee has nothing to gain from corruption or infighting, and they are all already officially dead, Stalin is more inclined to trust it, which is why he set it up, to have one source of information and advice that he could somewhat trust not to be constantly self-interested.I admit this is OTL influenced, but 'trust' is a highly relative term w.r.t. the General Secretary.
If, for some reason the Secretary General doesn't trust the Secret Committee anymore, he can easily destroy it with no consequences external to it what so ever, the whole thing is entirely expendable, which may give Stalin more reason to trust it.
