There is already extensive evidence, having nothing to do with Smirnov, of corrupt Biden-family influence-peddling.
Biden Justice Department prosecutor and “special counsel” David Weiss’s job is to protect President Biden. That is the thing we must always bear in mind, including in the peculiar case of Alexander Smirnov, whom Weiss has just indicted and imprisoned in a transparent attempt to knock down an allegation House Republicans foolishly ran with when it was both uncorroborated and not essential to their illustration of the Bidens’ sleazy relationship with Burisma, the corrupt Ukrainian energy company.
Another thing to remember: According to Democratic Party dogma, all evidence of the Biden family influencing-peddling business — and of the president’s being up to his neck in it — is Russian disinformation. It’s a laughable assertion, but Democrats touted it like there was no tomorrow during the 2019 Trump–Ukraine impeachment. It’s their story and Weiss is helping them stick to it.
As I pointed out in a column yesterday, the indictment filed against Smirnov by Weiss last week is one of the most peculiar charging documents you’ll ever encounter. It was filed in the Central District of California, headquartered in Los Angeles — you may remember it as the district in which Weiss, cross-his-heart, really, really wanted to indict Hunter Biden on tax charges but, he told investigating IRS and FBI agents, was blocked from doing so by the Biden-appointed U.S. attorney, E. Martin Estrada. At least that was the story until the outraged IRS agents went public. At that point, Weiss needed a new story to avoid embarrassing his boss, Attorney General Merrick Garland, who would not have tolerated such obstruction unless it was exactly what he wanted when it came to Hunter Biden. So Weiss reset: Gosh darn, it was all a big misunderstanding.

The evidence was already not looking good for Fulton County DA Fani Willis and her story about when her relationship with special prosecutor Nathan Wade began. There was prior testimony from her former good friend Robin Yeartie that the relationship began in 2019, before what both Wade and Willis told the Court. That was bad enough.
The defense, including former President Donald Trump, is arguing that the two and the DA's office should be disqualified from the case because of the relationship. The couple was forced to admit there was a romance, but both claimed it began in 2022 -- after Wade had been hired in Nov. 2021.
Check the timing and when he's in the area.

Not mentioned in the Brzezinski/McCaskill anti-Times/Trump hatefest was Brzezinski's (and Scarborough's) extensive role in elevating Trump's 2016 presidential campaign, but I digress.

The hue and cry about the recent death of Putin critic Alexei Navalny in a Russian prison overlooks that Biden and the Deep State are trying to imprison Trump until he dies, too. Anti-Trumpers in our country have been misusing the legal system with a vengeance ever since Trump defeated Hillary Clinton in 2016.
