DOJ Arrests FBI Informant Who Provided Details on Biden Bribery Scheme

The weaponized U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) has arrested an FBI informant who provided investigators with details about an alleged bribery scheme involving Democrat President Joe Biden and his family.

The informant, who was charged Thursday, provided the FBI with information about a bribery scheme involving Hunter Biden, Joe Biden, and Burisma Holdings.

Burisma is a notoriously corrupt Ukrainian energy company where Hunter Biden was a member of the board during his father’s vice presidency.

The company paid Hunter tens of thousands of dollars per month in salary despite having no experience in the energy sector.

The confidential human source (CHS), Alexander Smirnov, was arrested Thursday at the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada, and indicted by Special Counsel David Weiss.

He was charged on one count of making a false statement and one count of creating a false and fictitious record.

In 2020, Smirnov told the FBI  about alleged corruption involving Burisma and the two Bidens.

Smirnov told the FBI that Burisma executives had discussed paying millions of dollars to Hunter and Joe Biden.

The payments were to ensure that Joe Biden would use his political clout to protect the company’s interests.

The indictment asserts that Smirnov only made contact with Burisma executives in 2017.

This was after Biden’s stint as vice president concluded and after the Ukrainian investigator probing Burisma had lost his job, according to the indictment.

“The indictment alleges that [Smirnov] transformed his routine and unextraordinary business contacts with Burisma in 2017 and later into bribery allegations against [President Biden] after expressing bias against [Biden] and his presidential candidacy,” Weiss’ office said in a statement announcing the charges.

In 2020, Smirnov told the FBI that Burisma executives had told him in 2015 and 2016 that they hired Hunter Biden to the company’s board to “protect us, through his dad, from all kinds of problems.”

Joe Biden was leading Ukraine policy for the Obama administration at that time.

He has subsequently boasted that he got a Ukrainian prosecutor, who was investigating the company for corruption, fired after he threatened to withhold approximately $1 billion in aid for Ukraine

Smirnov further alleged that Burisma executives paid Joe Biden and Hunter Biden approximately $5 million each.

The payments were for Hunter to “take care of all those issues through his dad.”

These claims formed the basis of an FBI FD-1023 form, which Republican Iowa Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) obtained via a DOJ whistleblower.

FBI agents use FD-1023 forms to document the claims made by confidential human sources without actually drawing any conclusions about the veracity of the underlying information.

“Last year when Senator Grassley brought the existence of an FD-1023 containing allegations against then-Vice President Biden to our attention, we sought the unclassified FD-1023 form from the FBI,” House Oversight and Accountability Chairman James Comer said in a statement shared with Slay News.

“FBI officials and Director Wray refused to release the form publicly because they claimed it would jeopardize the safety of a confidential human source who they claimed was invaluable to the FBI.

“When asked by the committee about their confidence in the confidential human source, the FBI told the committee the confidential human source was credible and trusted, had worked with the FBI for over a decade, and had been paid six figures.

“The FBI’s actions in this matter are very concerning.

“The FBI had this form for years and it appears they did nothing to verify the troubling claims contained within the record until Congress became aware of and demanded access to them.”

The FBI is holding onto another FD-1023 document that apparently details alleged bribery and corruption involving Hunter Biden and his father, according to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Jim Jordan.

If convicted, Smirnov faces up to 25 years of imprisonment, according to ABC News.
