Special Counsel David Weiss Indicts FBI Informant Who Accused Biden Of Accepting Bribes


An FBI informant has been charged with lying to his handler about ties between President Biden, his son Hunter, and the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma.

The informant, identified as 41-year-old Alexander Smirnov, is accused of lying to FBI agents when he told them that executives associated with Burisma paid $5 million each between 2015 and 2016. The allegation, which was made in June 2020, became a central point of interest in the House impeachment inquiry into President Biden this past summer.

House investigators acknowledged that the allegations were not yet proven, however.

Smirnov told the bureau that a Burisma executive boasted about offering Hunter Biden a seat on the company’s board to “protect us, through his dad, from all kinds of problems,” prosecutors with Special Counsel David Weiss’ office, who investigated Hunter Biden as a U.S. attorney in Delaware before being tapped as special counsel, said.

Smirnov, 43, was charged with making a false statement and creating a false and fictitious record. He was arrested in Las Vegas on Wednesday shortly after arriving from an overseas trip and is expected to make an initial court appearance this week.

Weiss has separately charged Hunter Biden with a number of tax-related and gun violations.

This is a developing story.
