Hunter Biden Informant Arrested – FBI Source’s Ukraine Allegations May Unravel Theory About The US President Alleged FBI Informant’s Arrest Casts Doubt On Theory Surrounding US President

As the unfolding saga of the 2020 presidential election continues to reverberate, a startling development has emerged implicating an FBI informant in disseminating false allegations about President Joe Biden and his son, Hunter Biden.

In a surprising revelation, the individual, identified as Alexander Smirnov, 43, was apprehended in Las Vegas upon his return from an international trip, as disclosed by the Justice Department.

This arrest raises serious questions regarding the credibility of a key source close to the allegations. NBC News reports that these developments stem from the ongoing special counsel probe led by David Weiss, who concurrently oversees the legal proceedings against Hunter Biden.

Weiss, a President Donald Trump appointee for the chief federal prosecutor role in Delaware, has unveiled a 37-page indictment against Smirnov. The document accuses him of providing the FBI with fabricated information following Joe Biden’s presidential candidacy announcement in 2020, as reported by NBC News.

At the heart of the indictment lies the allegation that Smirnov, an FBI informant since 2010, fabricated stories about the Bidens’ dealings with Burisma, a Ukrainian energy firm where Hunter Biden had been employed. Prosecutors assert that Smirnov falsely alleged that Burisma executives hired Hunter Biden in anticipation of protection from various issues through his father’s influence. He further accused them of a $5 million payoff to both Bidens, a narrative he knew to be unfounded.

Contrary to his allegations, prosecutors argue that Smirnov’s actual interactions with Burisma executives occurred in 2017, a period when Joe Biden had concluded his vice-presidential tenure and thus could not sway U.S. policy. The indictment highlights Smirnov’s bias against Joe Biden, noting his transformation of mundane business interactions into unfounded bribery claims against the then-presidential candidate.
