    Have a ever studied how cult members think? Alot of you in this thread don't grasp the mental behavior that folks experience when they're in a cult. Jesus christ could come to earth and tell @El_Conquistador himself that biden is innocent yet he'd still suck off trump claiming biden corrupt.

    Evidence doesn't matter with MAGA.

    Now we know what a real Russia hoax looks like
    ; here is a chronology


    In June 2020,

    Alexander Smirnov, a dual citizen of Israel and the United States, passed unverified information to his FBI handler. He said he met with Burisma executives in 2015 and 2016, and they told him about their payments to the Bidens. At that time, Burisma was the subject of a criminal investigation by the corrupt Ukrainian Prosecutor General Viktor Shokin, who was later fired. Smirnov said he was told that Hunter Biden would “take care of all those issues” — Burisma’s vulnerabilities — “through his dad.”

    Smirnov also said he was told that the payments would be so hard to trace, it would take a decade to find out where the money had gone.

    House Republicans caught wind of the accusations, which were laid out in an FBI form known as a 1023, a raw account of conversations between Smirnov and his FBI contact, with whom he had spoken almost daily for 10 years, thus the FBI’s belief it was dealing with a credible source.

    House Repugs Gomer Pyle and Gym Jordan were so excited they released the unredacted, unverified document, as the basis for the Biden impeachment.

    Last month,

    a federal grand jury indicted Alexander Smirnov, 43, on charges he lied when he told the FBI that the Bidens had gotten $5 million each from Burisma. Not only that, according to special counsel Jack Weiss, who is overseeing the probe into Hunter Biden’s finances, Smirnov was probably coached to create the story by operatives associated with Russian intelligence in an effort to hurt President Biden as he faces reelection, most likely against Putin apologist former President Trump.

    On Wednesday,

    Special Council Jack Weiss filed a request asking the federal judge overseeing Smirnov’s case to revoke bail, alleging that Smirnov “is actively peddling new lies that could impact U.S. elections after meeting with Russian intelligence officials in November.” Smirnov needs to be confined, Weiss said, because he has the financial wherewithal and connections to flee the country. On Thursday, Smirnov was rearrested in Las Vegas, where he lives​

    A quiet L.A. life masked Kremlin ties for FBI source accused of lying about Bidens



    He rubbed elbows with Russian elites, spoke of an exclusive invite aboard an oligarch’s mega-yacht and cozied up to foreign intelligence agencies.

    As a valued FBI informant for the last 13 years, Alexander Smirnov hopscotched the globe to sweep up information on powerful figures and illicit activities. Federal agents even authorized him to break the law while doing so.

    For much of this time, Smirnov, 43, also lived a quiet, seemingly unremarkable life in the suburbs of Los Angeles with a long-term girlfriend 15 years his senior, calling Calabasas, Woodland Hills and Orange County home.

    Smirnov’s tenure as a confidential source for the FBI ended in spectacular fashion this month, with a grand jury in L.A. charging him with obstructing justice and lying to federal agents.

    The lies, according to prosecutors, included an explosive allegation that has been central to Republican efforts to impeach President Biden and bolster Donald Trump’s campaign to return to power — that Biden and son Hunter each accepted $5 million in bribes from the Ukrainian energy company Burisma.

    The falsehoods that Smirnov shared with his FBI handler in 2020, coupled with his extensive ties to Kremlin intelligence agencies, have fed into prosecutors’ portrayal of him as a walking vector of Russian disinformation.

    His covert work may have started as early as 2002, when he claimed to be involved in recruiting Russian and foreign consular officials, apparently as sources, according to what he told his FBI handler years later.​

    Since their impeachment case has been sunk, now maga house republicans switch horses in desperation. Most likely they know it will resort in nothing, as they have already contradicted hur's partisan finding that Biden did not willfully withhold papers (contrary to what trump did). Their obvious intent is simply to embarrass President Biden leading up to the election.

    This is what the house republicans are spending taxpayer dollars to do...

    Weiss's years long bungling opened the door for Congressional investigations (pre-impeachment), but finding nothing significant for a good year now has morphed this into another "Hillary email" ****-digging and flinging expedition to normalize the Trump indictments as Both-Sideism.

    I'm still interested about the story behind the IRS whisteblowers, but they're either held in legal check or that trail has gone cold. I guess there's an off-chance their bombshells are being sandbagged for election season (Rudy G knows the Truth!!), but it takes an incredibly thick and stupid skin to drag the same allegations for years on end even while they're being knocked off like dominoes...Devon Archer testimony, Smirnoff, sawdust! etc.,,

    Alexander Smirnov is a great sounds-fake Russian name, just like Kaiser von Schnitzel is a German one.

    comrade ron knows there is no evidence... nothing that connects President Biden to any crime. So he pretends, lying to the American people. AT some point you'd think there would be some penalty for spreading such a lie, but basically the republican party is unbound but truth or ethics.
