Chuck Grassley Takes Credit for Indictment of FBI’s Biden Bribery Scheme Informant

Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) has taken credit for the indictment of an FBI information who had linked Democrat President Joe Biden to his family’s bribery scheme.

Former FBI informant Alexander Smirnov’s bombshell whistleblower information played a massive role in the investigation into the Biden bribery scheme.

However, he was recently indicted by Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) for allegedly lying about it.

Smirnov was indicted in February for allegedly lying to his FBI handler about a bribery scheme involving Hunter Biden and his father, President Biden.

The information was part of the basis of the impeachment case against the president.

According to the New York Post, Grassley (R-IA) took all the credit for Smirnov’s eventual arrest and indictment.

The senator made the claim during a recent speech at the conservative Heritage Foundation conference.

Many believe that there’s far more to the story, however.

Some argue that Smirnov was even possibly set up in a “deep state” attempt to discredit Joe Biden’s impeachment investigation.

Grassley was quick to take credit for Smirnov’s arrest during a symposium on the “weaponization of media, lawfare, and the Hunter Biden investigation” at the conservative conference.

“Except for my listening to the Department of Justice and FBI whistleblowers, that ‘highly credible’ liar would still be on the FBI payroll, continuing to lie to the FBI, and maybe continuing to get people convicted that shouldn’t be convicted,” Grassley, 90, said.

The NY Post noted:

Grassley, who did not mention Smirnov by name, noted that the “highly credible” source had been paid hundreds of thousands of dollars by the FBI since 2010, his information had been “used in criminal investigations and prosecutions” and he had been “given authority to even commit illegal acts” in some cases.

“So credible was this source, the FBI used the credibility as a basis to withhold the [FD-]1023 document from Congress,” Grassley added, referencing the report that alleged the bribery scheme.

He went on to say that he and a fellow Republican senator now have the names of the FBI agents involved in that particular form.

Those agents will face questioning, he revealed.

The Iowa senator pointed out the length of time Smirnov had been on the government’s payroll before ultimately accusing him of lying.

“After 13 years on the FBI’s payroll, the Biden administration considered him a liar and then indicted him,” Grassley said.

“The FBI exposed their own source by name to the world, after telling Congress that he’s too credible,” Grassley said.

“I’ve never made any accusations in this investigation of President Biden being guilty of anything,” the senator added.

“I am in this to make sure that the FBI does its job of law enforcement.”

House Oversight Committee chairman James Comer (R-KY) has vowed that Smirnov’s indictment will not stop him from proceeding with the investigation into the Biden family.
