David Weiss Protected The Bidens Over National Security
Margot Cleveland

A federal judge rejected Special Counsel David Weiss’s request that confidential human source Alexander Smirnov remain jailed pending trial on charges that he lied to the FBI. While the special counsel’s office lost its motion to detain Smirnov, Weiss likely viewed the defeat as a public relations victory, given the gratuitous details he included in the memorandum filed with the court.

Weiss would be wrong, however, to consider anything about his office’s prosecution of Smirnov as a win. Rather, Tuesday’s court filing — if accurate — renders Weiss’s incompetence even more consequential.

Last week, news broke that Weiss had charged Smirnov in a two-count indictment with making false statements to the FBI and creating a false and fictitious record. The charges stem from Smirnov’s alleged lies to the FBI in June of 2020 concerning conversations Smirnov claims he had in 2015-2016 and then again in 2017 with various executives of the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

Among other things, Smirnov claimed Burisma executives said Hunter and Joe Biden pressured them to pay them $5 million each in bribes to ensure the Ukrainian prosecutor’s office left Burisma untouched. The handler memorialized Smirnov’s reporting in an FD-1023, which Sen. Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, later released to the public after whistleblowers suggested the Delaware U.S. attorney’s office had failed to investigate the CHS’s claims.
