Biden Family Whistleblower Re-Arrested Days after Being Charged by DOJ

A former FBI informant who blew the whistle with allegations of a bribery scheme involving Democrat President Joe Biden has been re-arrested just days after being charged last week.

As Slay News reported, Alexander Smirnov was arrested by Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) last week over allegations he lied to the FBI about the president’s role in a bribery scheme.

Smirnov had provided the bureau with information about the Biden family’s alleged business dealings with the notoriously corrupt Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.

The whistleblower told the FBI that the president and his son Hunter Biden took millions of dollars in bribes from Burisma to block investigations into the company.

The U.S. House Oversight and Judiciary Committees have been investigating the allegations and obtained bank records showing millions of dollars flowing into the Bidens’ accounts from foreign nationals, including from Ukraine.

However, Biden’s DOJ claims that Smirnov has been lying to the FBI and arrested him over the allegations last week.

Smirnov, 43, was released by a Nevada judge earlier this week.

On Thursday, he was re-arrested after a different judge intervened in his release.

A California judge ordered him arrested again after federal prosecutors argued Smirnov, who holds dual U.S.-Israeli citizenship, was a flight risk.

Smirnov is “actively peddling new lies that could impact U.S. elections,” federal prosecutors said Wednesday.

The move comes after the DOJ appealed to a judge to keep Smirnov behind bars ahead of trial on charges alleging he lied to the FBI.

The latest charges were filed in deep blue Los Angeles, California, meaning if his case goes to trial, that’s where the case will be.

Several sealed entries were listed in the court docket.

However, no additional details about his return to custody were immediately available.

Smirnov is charged with making a false statement and creating a false and fictitious record.

According to attorneys David Chesnoff and Richard Schonfeld, Smirnov was arrested Thursday morning at their law offices in downtown Las Vegas on the same charges.

Prosecutors say Smirnov falsely told his handler that executives from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma paid President Biden and Hunter Biden $5 million each around 2015.

The claim became central to the Republican impeachment inquiry in Congress.
