An Iranian agent was charged on Wednesday by the Justice Department in connection with an alleged plan to kill John Bolton, a former national security advisor in the Trump administration.
The DOJ’s announcement was followed by a statement from Bolton that read, “While much cannot be addressed publicly right now, one point is indisputable: Iran’s authorities are liars, terrorists, and adversaries of the United States.”
The FBI is looking for Shahram Poursafi, a member of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, in connection with the Bolton assassination plot, which U.S. officials said was probably planned in retaliation for the strike that killed Qassem Soleimani, a renowned Iranian leader and the head of Iran’s Quds Force, in January 2020.

According to a news statement from the Justice Department’s National Security Division’s Assistant Attorney General Matthew G. Olsen, “The Justice Department has the sacred duty to defend our citizens from hostile countries who want to harm or kill them.” We have already discovered Iranian schemes to wreak retribution against people on American territory, and we’ll keep working nonstop to find and foil all of them.
The former national security adviser’s photos were requested from a U.S. resident by Poursafi, according to the DOJ press release, who claimed they would be used for a book he was writing. Poursafi had met the person online. The local provided Poursafi with a contact who was eager to snap the photos for $5,000–$10,000.
Then, using encrypted messaging platforms, Poursafi made contact with another person and made an initial offer of $250,000 to pay someone to “remove” Bolton. This sum was later lowered to $300,000. Poursafi also hinted at a potential future “career” that would pay $1 million.
Poursafi then gave the assailant instructions on how to conduct the operation, emphasizing that the use of a small weapon would necessitate getting up close to the former Trump administration official.
According to a news release from U.S. Attorney Matthew M. Graves for the District of Columbia, “Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, through the Defendant, tried to construct a brazen plot: murder a former U.S. official on U.S. land in retaliation for U.S. actions.” “The U.S. Attorney’s Office and our law enforcement partners will do everything in our ability to foil Iran and other hostile nations’ murderous designs and bring those responsible to account,” the statement reads.

The DOJ will decide to charge someone for trying to kill a war enthusiast and Trump hater but not for trying to kill a Supreme Court justice who was selected by Trump. The DOJ is the portion of our government that is the most corrupt. What should the nation’s honest citizens do when the FBI, DOJ, and CIA are all corrupt? Politicians, Democratic, Republican, and others, who claim to represent the people, the Constitution, and this once-great country, now dominate our Congress.
In our armed services, we have generals who prioritize their political views over the oath they swore to uphold and defend the Constitution. These generals and politicians need to be punished for being traitors. What should “We the People” do when people we chose to represent us annihilate our country in the name of personal dominance and monetary gain? We must reclaim our country. Politicians must be held responsible.
We kneel before God, humble ourselves, confess our sins, and pray. Even if the entire world is against us, His people will succeed if He is on their side. Our government will never apologize or act with humility. Instead, they substituted the cult and humanism Climate Agenda for the belief in the Divine held by our founding ancestors. America is in danger of suffering a similar fate, especially now that Biden has opened the border, much as ancient Israel did after turning their backs on God’s laws and Word. Our defense against those who wish to destroy us has been breached.
Donald Trump, thank you for attempting to defend this country. We are grateful to Donald Trump for appointing three conservative justices to the Supreme Court, which helped to delay God’s wrath a little bit. I apologize for the lengthy response, but these issues are very close to my heart.
