In a recent development, Alexander Smirnov, a former FBI informant, was indicted by special counsel David Weiss on charges of fabricating allegations against President Biden.

Smirnov had previously claimed that Biden had been bribed by Burisma, a Ukrainian oil and gas company.

Smirnov, 43, was apprehended at the Harry Reid International Airport in Las Vegas on Thursday, as reported by CNN. The indictment against him alleges that his narrative to the FBI was a concoction of business meetings and contacts that had occurred, but not in the context he had presented.

The indictment states, "His story was a fabrication, an amalgam of otherwise unremarkable business meetings and contacts that had actually occurred but at a later date than he claimed and for the purpose of pitching Burisma on the Defendant’s services and products, not for discussing bribes to [Joe Biden] when he was in office."

Smirnov had previously testified to House Republicans, alleging illegal foreign business dealings by the Biden family. He claimed that Burisma executives had paid President Biden and his son, Hunter Biden, $5 million each to dismiss a Ukrainian prosecutor investigating Burisma.

Smirnov asserted that this bribery took place during Biden's tenure as vice president under the Obama administration. However, the indictment contradicts his claims, stating, "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."

The indictment further elaborates, "In short, the Defendant transformed his routine and unextraordinary business contacts with Burisma in 2017 and later into bribery allegations against [Joe Biden], the presumptive nominee of one of the two major political parties for President, after expressing bias against [Joe Biden] and his candidacy."
