Indicted FBI Informant Re-Arrested Under ‘Bizarre Circumstances,’ His Lawyers Say | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A longtime FBI informant accused in an indictment of fabricating a multi-million dollar bribery scheme involving President Joe Biden and his son Hunter Biden has been re-arrested after a judge allowed his release, the man's attorneys said on Thursday.

    Lawyers for Alexander Smirnov, a 43-year-old dual U.S.-Israeli citizen who served as an FBI source for more than a decade, filed an emergency motion in Nevada's federal court that said their client was arrested for a second time on the same charges while at their law office for meetings with counsel.

    The filing insisted Smirnov was taken back into custody under "bizarre circumstances" while pointing out a lack of filings from the judge in the docket in California. Smirnov's lawyers requested an immediate detention hearing to seek the release of their client. A copy of the arrest warrant shows it was issued by District Judge Otis Wright II in the Central District of California, where federal prosecutors asked a judge to reconsider the release this week.


    Special counsel David Weiss, who is leading the criminal inquiry into Hunter Biden, announced last week that a federal grand jury in California returned an indictment charging Smirnov with false statement and obstruction crimes. He also said Smirnov had been arrested at the international airport in Las Vegas upon his arrival in the United States from overseas.

    The charges stem from Smirnov coming forward during the 2020 election cycle with claims that executives with Burisma Holdings, a Ukrainian gas company that employed Hunter Biden on its board for several years, paid $5 million in bribes to the Bidens when Joe Biden was vice president.

    A conviction may result in 25 years in prison.

    On Tuesday, U.S. Magistrate Judge Daniel Albregts of Nevada permitted Smirnov's release from custody with GPS monitoring while telling him to surrender his U.S. and Israeli passports. The judge also ordered Smirnov to stay in Clark County, Nevada, except to go to Los Angeles for court appearances and to prepare for his case, and barred trips to the airport.

    Prosecutors had argued Smirnov should remain detained pending trial, citing his alleged links to foreign intelligence operations, including that of Russia, and warned Smirnov poses a "serious" risk of fleeing with access to over $6 million in "liquid funds" and has the ability to obtain a new Israeli passport. One day after Smirnov's release, Weiss and his team asked Wright for a review of Albregts' order of bail.

    Lawyers for Smirnov said in their filing on Thursday that their client has not left Clarke County, Nevada, since his release on Tuesday and noted "the fact that the Defendant was attending a legal consultation meeting at his attorneys' office contradicts the notion that he is a risk of flight. It also highlights the interference with his cherished Sixth Amendment rights."


    In response to the magistrate judge asking Weiss and his team for a response by Friday afternoon, former federal prosecutor Andrew Weissmann said, "Weiss is playing with fire here-he can appeal the Magistrate's decision to release Smirnov (and has done so), but arresting him on the same case the Magistrate released him on smacks of impropriety. Understandable the Magistrate wants to know what justifies this."

Considering what real news is available for all to witness, and in great specificity, should one pursue what is true outside of the channeled realm of the corrupt corporate /legacy media, and: Is Institutionalized Corruption real, and is it a hindrance to sustaining our Constitutional Republic now, and for future generations of American citizens?

Now that the public is allowed to know the truth regarding the Hunter Biden Laptop Scandal, after more that 2 1/2 years of deception by the corrupt Corporate Media Kabal, propropagandidats all, and the discredited Deep State, we have NOW learned that the infamous laptop is far less about the Biden Boy's fetish for pornography, narcotics and Russian whores, and far more about Hunter's pivotal role in the Biden Crime Syndicate's selling of deep access to our foreign adversaries, and to what extent it has compromised our national security: What is your opinion about this possible coordinated Treason?
  It is imperative that we know the truth of what may be the greatest scandal in our Republic's history, and all aforementioned parties prosecuted for their crimes against the People.
  Currently, our Two Tiered Justice System is constructed to protect all Democratic Socialists, their corrupt "Journalist" spokes-sheople, and their Deep State enablers ... so why bother.
  It is Donald Trump's fault.
  How can we be assured that the "Laptop" is real? Would NOT our standard journalists have investigated this issue thoroughly nearly 3 years ago if it was real?

In light of continued developments, primarily since 2008, there exists in these United States a Legal System which operates on a proved Two Tiered approach to justice rendered, which primarily benefits Democratic Elites and Woke Ideological Virtue Signalers, representing their co-dependent wards, to the expressed exclusion of normal hardworking American citizens: What is your suggestion in remedying this widespread injustice and, if not corrected, its existential outcome for our Constitutional Republic?
  Complete overhaul of the Department of Justice and their enforcers - the FBI - to reflect a far more honest justice system to keep patriots remaining calm.
  Disband the FBI, and request that congress investigate all unethical and non patriotic practices to partially right the wrongs of a distrusted and politically weaponized "Department of Justice."
  Continue with the current system since the two tiered justice system has been so remarkably beneficial to Democratic Socialist political hegemony; chronic distrust in institutions notwithstanding.

In stripping away the heavy varnish of fakery by the heavy handed Corrupt Corporate Media; in taking a true view of what is real, right now with clear open eyes: How do you see this 46th President of these States United; what is your visceral first impression of Joe Biden after nearly 3 years on the job?
  A good man, wise and kind
  The Socialist President
  A president in praise of his son
  The Non Patriot President
  A successful president
  The Idiot President
  A knowledgeable president
  A corrupt president
  A perfect leader of the Democratic Socialist party
  The man is married to a "Doctor"

The question here is how far does the weaponized and highly ineffective Biden DOJ /FBI take this recent charade regarding one of their "most trusted informants."
