FBI informant Alexander Smirnov to appear in court after being accused of lying about Biden family and Burisma bribery

Special Counsel David Weiss, who worked on a case involving Hunter, after charging the informant, has insisted he stay in prison.


Former FBI informant Alexander Smirnov has been accused by Special Counsel David Weiss of lying about the Biden family in a corruption case and will appear in court on Monday. Weiss previously worked on the Hunter Biden case and consequently some have alleged corruption against the US Delaware attorney.

Smirnov, 43, will have a judge determine on Monday if he must remain behind bars as he awaits trial for allegedly lying about a $10 million bribery scheme involving Hunter and Joe Biden. Weiss has pressed US District Judge Otis Wright II to keep Smirnov in prison and claims Smirnov will flee the country.  

Last week, another judge ruled that he could be released from prison with an electronic GPS monitor, however, Wright ordered him to be arrested once again. Wright stated to Smirnov's lawyers that he is "likely to facilitate his absconding from the United States." 

He is charged with falsely telling the FBI that executives at Burisma had paid $5 million both to Hunter Biden as well as the president. The file containing the former informant’s claims about the Bidens was released earlier in 2023. The file read, "It cost 5 [million] to pay one Biden, and 5 [million] to another Biden." 

Earlier in February, the Biden DOJ arrested Smirnov at the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas. The informant claimed to House Republicans that the bribery scheme occurred while Joe Biden was Vice President.  

The indictments on Smirnov stated,  "In truth and fact, the Defendant had contact with executives from Burisma in 2017, after the end of the Obama-Biden Administration and after the then Ukrainian Prosecutor General had been fired in February 2016, in other words, when [Joe Biden] had no ability to influence U.S. policy and when the Prosecutor General was no longer in office." 

Questions surrounding the involvement of Special Counsel David Weiss have been spurred because of his previous work on the Hunter Biden case in 2023.  

One user on X, Hans Mahncke, posted, "At this point you have to assume that David Weiss is working hand in glove with Democrat operatives like Daniel Goldman." 

"This is one of the most pitiful paragraphs ever written, totally devoid of any facts and full of lies and innuendo," he said of a section of the court documents on Smirnov. 

On Dec. 5, 2023, the House Judiciary Committee released a report about Weiss' "preferential treatment of Hunter Biden" and other evidence that showed Weiss “slow-walked the investigation" in the president's son.
