Who is Alexander Smirnov? Former FBI informant accused of lying about Bidens’ Ukraine business

David Weiss, the special counsel, has charged Alexander Smirnov, a confidential source for the Federal Bureau of Investigations (FBI), with giving false information and lying about President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden’s business dealings with the Ukrainian energy company Burisma Holdings.

According to Smirnov’s report to the FBI, “Businessperson 1,” who was the son of “Public Official 1,” was on the board of Burisma. This was based on claims made in the charge. The indictment did not name the specific people that the former FBI agent talked about.

On the other hand, CNN said that its sources said “Public Official 1” was Joe Biden and “Businessperson 1” was Hunter Biden. Now that the news was out, not many people knew much about Smirnov.

Who is Alexander Smirnov?

TimesNowNews says that Alexander Smirnov is 43 years old and used to work for the FBI as an informant. Smirnov is now being charged with lying to the FBI after being a secret spy for a while. He is also charged with making fake records about the first family.

Smirnov was caught by the FBI on Thursday at Las Vegas’s Harry Reid International Airport. Reports said he came to the US from another country. In the afternoon, Smirnov would be taken to a federal court to be held for more time.

At the time this story came out, it wasn’t clear if Smirnov had a lawyer. The police didn’t say much about his personal life out in public.
