Informant Charged By FBI After Exposing Biden’s Alleged Role In Ukrainian Company

via The Telegraph

Special Counsel David Weiss charged a former FBI informant, Alexander Smirnov, with making false statements and creating false records regarding his allegations about Joe Biden and Hunter Biden’s business dealings in Ukraine.

The indictment says Smirnov was repeatedly warned over a decade as an FBI informant that any information he provided must be truthful.

“In truth and fact, [Smirnov] had contact with executives from Burisma in 2017, after the end of the Obama-Biden Administration and after the then Ukrainian Prosecutor General had been fired in February 2016, in other words, when [Joe Biden] had no ability to influence U.S. policy and when the Prosecutor General was no longer in office,” the indictment read.

“In short, [Smirnov] transformed his routine and unextraordinary business contacts with Burisma in 2017 and later into bribery allegations against [Joe Biden], the presumptive nominee of one of the two major political parties for President, after expressing bias against [Joe Biden] and his candidacy,” it read.

In June 2020, after Biden announced his presidential campaign, Smirnov told his FBI handler fabricated stories accusing Burisma executives of admitting to hiring Hunter Biden in 2015-2016 to “protect” the company from legal issues through Joe Biden as Vice President, and paying $5 million each to Joe and Hunter Biden.

However, the indictment states Smirnov’s actual contacts with Burisma occurred in 2017 after Biden left office, and he transformed routine business interactions into false bribery claims against Biden to influence the 2020 election.

Smirnov has been charged with lying to the FBI.
