The Biden administration is now actively protecting Iran from indictment after plans to assassinate an ex-Trump official were discovered, according to a report from the Washington Examiner.
Two members of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards’ Quds Force, a covert ops military unit and recognized terror group, have been plotting to kill former National Security Advisor John Bolton, among other U.S. officials.
The plot, described as “specific and highly credible”, involved significant reconnaissance and the recruitment of an assassin on U.S. soil, a Justice Department source told the Washington Examiner.
According to the source, “the seriousness of the conspiracy and the evidence warranted public indictment without delay”, but the Biden administration is refusing to issue the indictments for fear of jeopardizing talks with Iran.
The White House is aggressively pursuing negotiations with the world's largest state sponsor of terror to restore the 2015 JCPOA agreement.
JCPOA was first initiated by former President Obama to convince the Iranians to curb their nuclear weapons development program, which involved the U.S. flying planeloads of cash to the Islamic country and ending a major federal law enforcement operation against terror group Hezbollah.
But former President Donald Trump, who was unwilling to negotiate with terrorists, pulled out of the agreement.
Biden expressed a willingness to return to the negotiation table earlier in his term but is now desperately pursuing a deal with Iran. An agreement with Iran could then open the door for the US to purchase oil from Iran instead of Russia, who is also under U.S. sanctions for invading Ukraine.
As reported by Frontline News, the Biden administration is courting Iran and Venezuela to replace Russia as oil suppliers.
However, according to Mikhail Ulyanov, the lead Russian negotiator for the Iran nuclear talks, Iran is walking away with even more than it expected.
“Iranian clerics are fighting for Iranian nuclear – national interests like lions,” Ulyanov said in an interview this week. “They fight for every comma, every word, and as a rule, quite successfully.”
“I am absolutely sincere in this regard when I say Iran got much more than it could expect,” added Ulyanov. “Much more. Realistically speaking, Iran got more than frankly I expected, others expected. This is a matter of fact.”
