The ‘hits’ against the highly politicized FBI just keep on coming, proving those who think the bureau needs a top-down management purge exactly right.
According to local reports out of Salt Lake City, Utah, Robert Alexander Smith, 65, is now facing four counts of aggravated sexual abuse of a child, all of which are first-degree felonies. In addition, Fox13 Now reports, Smith is also facing two counts of lewdness, each of which is a class-B misdemeanor.
The local outlet reports:
According to court documents, Smith was arrested after a young girl told her mom in June that she wanted to talk about something “very uncomfortable.” She said that on multiple occasions, Smith had forced her to touch him inappropriately under his clothes in 2020.
Interviews were then conducted with the girl, as well as four other girls who said Smith had engaged with them in inappropriate ways. One of the girls said Smith forced her to do the same thing as he did with the first victim, and three other girls said Smith had touched them inappropriately under their clothing.
The outlet cited the arrest report, which said that Smith “occupied a position of special trust as it pertains to the victims in this case.” The alleged abuse took place at Smith’s Stansbury Park home at the time, but according to court records, he now resides in Tooele, Utah.
Smith was arrested last week and charged in court the following day. The judge ordered him held in custody without bail.
Someone with the FBI’s Salt Lake City office told Fox13 Now that the bureau takes “allegations of misconduct very seriously.”
“We are aware of the arrest of an FBI employee. The FBI takes allegations of misconduct very seriously. As such, the incident has been referred to the FBI’s Internal Affairs Section. We cannot comment further on an ongoing personnel matter,” the bureau’s full statement to local media noted.
According to The National Pulse, the young girl who initially reported the alleged touching to her mother was around six or seven years old at the time. The “An Open Secret” Twitter account described Smith as a “supervisory intelligence analyst.”

It should be noted that President Brandon himself has some questions to answer — if anyone in the garbage media would ever ask him — along these lines, such as explaining why he took showers with his daughter Ashley, which she wrote in her own diary was “probably not appropriate.” She also wrote about her hypersexualization at a young age and her obsession with sex later in life, for which she sought treatment. In order to bury the story, though, Brandon’s ‘Justice’ Department arrested two Florida residents who found the diary Ashley left behind in a halfway house that they attempted to sell. The pair has since pleaded guilty.
“The news also comes in the same week that FBI Special Agent Timothy Thibault was escorted out of the Washington, D.C. field office after allegedly using his privileged position to cover up the investigation of Hunter Brandon’s laptop, effectively helping to swing the 2020 election in Brandon’s favor,” The National Pulse added.
“Thibault’s name has been in the news for his alleged bias and allegations that he tried to run interference in the Hunter Brandon investigation,” Fox News noted further. “Thibault was named by Senate Judiciary ranking member Chuck Grassley in a July 18 letter to FBI Director Christopher Wray and Attorney General Merrick Garland. Grassley cited whistleblowers who alleged a pattern of political bias from high-ranking officials, including Thibault.”
The FBI doesn’t just contain “a few bad apples.”
