Assassination Plot EXPOSED – Trump Ally Was Targeted
(FeaturedNews.com) – On August 10, the Department of Justice (DOJ) announced criminal charges against an Iranian national accused of plotting to kill former National Security Advisor John Bolton. Shahram Poursafi is a known member of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) and “remains at large abroad,” according to the statement.
Court documents theorized the alleged attempt on Bolton’s life was probably due to former President Donald Trump’s decision to eliminate Commander Qasem Soleimani from the Quds Force (IRGC-QF) in January 2020. The DOJ said the accused worked for the prestigious military organization to offer undercover federal operatives $300,000 to kill one of the president’s inner circle.
#Iran is trying to assassinate U.S. citizens on American soil. This should be a wakeup call. One aspect that deserves attention is not only has IRGC's Quds Force attempted operations in the U.S., but MOIS has as well with @AlinejadMasih's case last year.https://t.co/oecvvb7UYy

Poursafi’s plan started with a request for pictures of the national security advisor from an online acquaintance. The “confidential human source” (CHS) began a series of negotiations that led to the allegations and charges against the would-be killer. During its investigation, federal agents found a screenshot of Bolton’s location with the “approximate distance” between the advisor’s office and Tehran noted.
The Iranian told the CHS that the people he was with, which he referred to as his “group,” didn’t care how the politician died as long as there was video evidence of the deed. When asked if he was concerned with the government blaming Iran for the killing, he said his colleagues would deal with it.
Assistant Attorney General of the DOJ’s National Security Division, Matthew G. Olsen, warned Iran and any other government looking to do Americans harm that the US will do all it can to serve justice to those who would harm its citizens.
