FBI Informant Linked to Russia?!

Red lights

(StraightShooterNews.com) – In a bombshell revelation that will otherwise not change the outcome of a strong congressional probe against him, an FBI informant who accused Joe Biden of being illegally involved in his son’s work affairs has been revealed to be linked to Russia.

According to a court document the informant had “high-level contacts” with top Russian spies from the Russian Federation.

Alexander Smirnov, who is both American and Israeli, was arrested and accused of making false statements to the FBI about Biden’s connections to the Ukrainian energy firm Burisma Holdings Limited.

This company had Hunter Biden on their payroll and gave him $50,000 every month during Joe’s tenure as vice president.

In a paper filed with the U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada to keep Smirnov imprisoned until his trial continued, the Department of Justice (DOJ) stated that he claimed to have had “contacts with multiple foreign intelligence agencies … [who] could resettle Smirnov outside the United States if he were released.”

Special Counsel David Weiss wrote in the document, “During his custodial interview … Smirnov admitted that officials associated with Russian intelligence were involved in passing a story about [Hunter Biden].”

He further added, “Smirnov apparently attended a separate meeting with Russian Official 1, [an] individual who controls groups that are engaged in overseas assassination efforts.”

Smirnov was arrested at Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada after returning to the United States from a trip to meet with Russian spies.

As written in the file, “Smirnov’s contacts with Russian officials who are affiliated with Russian intelligence services are not benign.” Yet, this document also points out that the police knew about Smirnov’s secretive Russian connections because of his conversations with his FBI contact.

Smirnov’s role was initially uncovered by Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA) following reports from whistleblowers. A staff member for Grassley stated that the “informant behind the FD-1023 was, indeed, a long-serving, trusted FBI source used by the agency for criminal investigations since the Obama administration. In fact, he was so trusted that the FBI provided him authorization ‘to engage in illegal activity for investigative purposes.’”

At this point, Joe is under a microscope, with the U.S. House Oversight Committee keeping an eye on his role in his son’s business with foreign interests.
