HeadlineFeb 21, 2024

More information has emerged about the ex-FBI informant who was indicted for lying about President Biden and his son Hunter Biden receiving millions of dollars from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma. Prosecutors say Alexander Smirnov blamed Russian intelligence agents for sharing the false information on the Bidens. A judge in Las Vegas ordered Smirnov’s release on bond Tuesday pending trial. He is also required to surrender his U.S. and Israeli passports. The lies about the Bidens are central to Republican efforts to impeach the president.
