Special Counsel Charges FBI Informant With Lying About Joe And Hunter Biden

The 37-page indictment alleges that Alexander Smirnov “provided false derogatory information to the FBI” about both Bidens.

WASHINGTON — An FBI informant has been indicted on two counts for allegedly providing false information about President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden during the 2020 presidential campaign.

The 37-page indictment alleges that Alexander Smirnov “provided false derogatory information to the FBI” about both Bidens after Joe Biden became a candidate for president in 2020.

Smirnov faces one count of making a false statement to a government agent and falsification of records in a federal investigation.

Smirnov allegedly falsely told the FBI that officials with Burisma, the Ukrainian energy company that Hunter Biden worked for, had told him they hired Hunter Biden because he would “protect us, through his dad, from all kinds of problems.”

“This is just another instance of Chairman [James] Comer and [Rep. Jim] Jordan peddling falsehoods based on dishonest, uncredible allegations and witnesses,” Abbe Lowell, Hunter Biden’s attorney, said in the statement.

House Oversight Committee Ranking Member Jamie Raskin called for an end to the impeachment inquiry following the announcement of the indictment.

“In short, the Defendant 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,” the indictment alleges.
