A federal court has unsealed a two-count indictment against Alexander Smirnov, a former FBI Confidential Human Source. Special Counsel David Weiss on Wednesday announced that Smirnov is facing two charges related to fabricating claims about President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter.

The issue centers on the bribery scandal that came to light in July 2023. Smirnov accused the president and his son of accepting bribes from Ukrainian energy company Burisma in exchange for clearing the way for the company to do business in America.

The indictment alleges that Smirnov “provided false derogatory information” about Biden and his son. The document refers to the president as “Public Official 1” and Hunter as “Businessperson 1.”

Despite repeated admonishments that he must provide truthful information to the FBI and that he must not fabricate evidence, the Defendant provided false derogatory information to the FBI about Public Official 1, an elected official in the Obama-Biden Administration who left office in January 2017, and Businessperson 1, the son of Public Official 1, in 2020, after Public Official 1 became a candidate for President of the United States of America.

Smirnov was arrested at the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada, after arriving from overseas.

The indictment dissects Smirnov’s claims, noting discrepancies and fabrications in his reports. Of particular note are the allegations that he deliberately misrepresented Joe and Hunter’s dealings with Burisma. He suggested that both parties received payments in exchange for political protection. RedState’s Jennifer Van Laar covered the allegations when they first came to light.

Can the poli board lawyers or anyone explain what this is?

An FBI informant reported on Hunter Biden & Burisma unfavorably. Chuck Grassley exposed it.

Then the DOJ goes after their own informant?

A real shame Trump didn’t use his Justice Department to take down Fusion GPS

They're punishing real whistleblowers. We're living in an Orwellian nightmare. There is just no check on the corruption.

And to the board libs who say there is no evidence of Joe's corruption....

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has just released the unclassified FD-1023 “alleging then VP Biden engaged in a criminal bribery scheme.”

From Grassley’s website:

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) today released an unclassified FBI-generated record describing an alleged criminal scheme involving then-Vice President Joe Biden and a Ukrainian business executive. Grassley acquired the record, an FD-1023, via legally protected disclosures by Justice Department whistleblowers.

“For the better part of a year, I’ve been pushing the Justice Department and FBI to provide details on its handling of very significant allegations from a trusted FBI informant implicating then-Vice President Biden in a criminal bribery scheme. While the FBI sought to obfuscate and redact, the American people can now read this document for themselves, without the filter of politicians or bureaucrats, thanks to brave and heroic whistleblowers.

What did the Justice Department and FBI do with the detailed information in the document? And why have they tried to conceal it from Congress and the American people for so long? The Justice Department and FBI have failed to come clean, but Chairman Comer and I intend to find out,” Grassley said.

“The FBI’s Biden Bribery Record tracks closely with the evidence uncovered by the Oversight Committee’s Biden family influence peddling investigation. In the FBI’s record, the Burisma executive claims that he didn’t pay the ‘big guy’ directly but that he used several bank accounts to conceal the money.

That sounds an awful lot like how the Bidens conduct business: using multiple bank accounts to hide the source and total amount of the money,” House Committee on Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer said. “At our hearing with IRS whistleblowers, they testified that they had never seen or heard of this record during the Biden criminal investigation, despite having potentially corroborating evidence. Given the misconduct and politicization at the Department of Justice, the American people must be able to read this record for themselves.

I thank Senator Grassley for providing much needed transparency to the American people. We must hold the Department of Justice accountable for seeking to bury this record to protect the Bidens.”

We all know the problem, it's the solution that freezes us in our tracks. The Marxists know it too, "the barrel of a gun" is always what settles which ideology (Constitutional Prinicple/God-given Rights vs Marxism) holds formal power as the two sides are polar and societally incompatible.

I suspect that the Left pulls the trigger this year in regard to taking a chance that Trump sneaks back in via an 'uncheatable' electoral wave. Knowing that Trump must and will do to the Marxists what they do to their opposition per the OP.

All of those imported 'warriors' has really changed the dynamic. The Dems watched that Video that we discussed here..."Why the Right will win the coming Civil War". And they opened the Border the Border to fix it. The 'Government' has bought up plenty of guns and ammo to arm them, albeit drinking ditchwater won't be much of target to shoot when the lights go out.

We are riding on the 'Titanic'. Get Jesus, if that is an option.

I was hoping against all odds this wasn't the DOJ obstructing by arresting an FBI informant slash whistle blower; because Grassley released this...

With a leftist authoritarian regime, expect leftist authoritarian tactics:

Intimidation
Political persecution
Lies
Manipulation

You know, all of the things that the goose-stepping communazis of the board support.

Trump nominated the special counsel that charged the informant. He must be part of the deep state too.

Has anyone seen any reporting on exactly what “discrepancies” and “fabrications” and “deliberate misrepresentations” they allege he reported? I’m not inclined to accept on faith that whatever the DoJ says is true or false is, in fact, true or false.

Everyone knows both Bidens are criminal traitors and there is much proof to support this. Maybe this indictment will backfire if the defendant can produce information at discovery and trial to defend himself and the media is forced to cover it. I can hope.

He needs to start a Go Fund Me as he will raise substantial defense funds from people like me to accomplish above.

Weird.

MSDNC, ABXi, XiNN, NBXi, XiBS, Faux News, WaPo, NYT and 99% of other "news" publishers have deliberately provided the public at large with false derogatory information about Donald J. Trump every single hour of every single day since June 16th of 2015.

Where's their indictment? Their derogatory claims are demonstrably false and it's not even debatable, unlike Smirnov's claims that are backed up by evidence.
