State Department tells Congress Trump’s Iran Envoy Faces ‘Serious and Credible’ Threats

The State Department delivered a non-public assessment to Congress about death threats from Iran aimed at former president Donald Trump and top officials from the administration’s Iran envoy.

The assessment, viewed by the Washington Free Beacon, alerted Congress on January 11 that a “specific threat persists with respect to former special representative [for Iran] Brian Hook.” The unclassified but non-public assessment does not name the individuals behind the threats, but refers to them only as a “foreign power or the agent of a foreign power.”

The Free Beacon reports Hook was at the helm of Trump’s maximum pressure campaign on Tehran and was instrumental in the assassination of Iranian terror leader Qassem Soleimani. Soleimani was killed in a 2020 drone strike, and Iran has vowed to take retaliatory action for his death.

The State Department warns Hook has been under a “Serious and credible” threat since at least January 2021. Top Iranian leaders have threatened the lives of Trump and senior members of his administration on Iranian government accounts on Twitter and other social media sites.

Multiple times this month the accounts have promised to assassinate Trump, “with the regime issuing an official video that depicts a drone strike on the former president.” The Biden administration says it takes these threats seriously and will do everything to protect former and current officials.

    Sounds like a good way for the DS to set up an attack on people they don’t like and then blame it on Iran…

    THOSE LIEING BOZOS ARE ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS BLAMING OTHERS TO COVER THEIR BUTTS FROM WHAT THEY THEMSELVES ARE DOING.

    I’m telling you, the Democrats will never allow Trump to run again or get reelected! They will do anything to keep him from doing that, so it that would not surprise me if they had him assassinated and made it look like someone else did it. We all know how desperate and devious they are!

    And yet their twitter accounts and social media accounts are still active. The irony of it all is amazing.

    It is hard to determine how serious these people are. However, I am quite sure Brandon is doing nothing to prevent an attack. For Trump, I am sure he is taking precautions.

    Yeah, and I just bet it’s funded by Soros and the DNC.

Iranian Americans and exiles increase pressure on Biden to end negotiations with Iran

Published

Iran

As the world rallies around the women’s rights movement protesting the Islamic regime following the death of 22-year-old Iranian woman Mahsa Amini, the pressure on Biden to cease nuclear negotiations intensifies.

“Iranian Americans have held rallies in Los Angeles, New York City, San Francisco and many other places in the U.S., chanting for the downfall of Iran’s President Ebrahim Raisi and Supreme Leader Ali Khamenei, while calling on the international community to help” writes the Foreign Desk.

During a Sunday rally at the Los Angeles Federal building in Westwood, many young and old attendees spoke to the Foreign Desk and explained their reasons for being against a nuclear agreement while speaking on condition of anonymity:

While many Iranians have been vocal on social media and are attending solidarity protests, most are still fearful of retribution against their friends and family in Iran and requested that their actual names not be used in writing this piece. 

Some Iranian Americans stated that negotiations with Iranian officials would “legitimize the regime and their actions.” Other rallygoers explained that by negotiating with Iran’s regime and removing the economic sanctions, the regime could “build a nuclear bomb against Israel and the U.S..” Instead, they argued that the President should “do more” to punish the Islamic regime and “target its leadership.”

Young Iranian immigrants at the rally argued that instead of removing economic sanctions as stipulated in the nuclear negotiations, the President should actually “put more economic sanctions on the regime,” and that by placing harsher sanctions on the regime, their friends, family members, and the whole country would suffer, but it would significantly “hurt the regime.” 

When asked if they were confident that President Biden would stop negotiations with the regime, many believed that the administration would continue their talks, no matter how big the outcry.

The Foreign Desk  explains that the Iranian regime continues to crack down on protesters without relent. However, the State Department has again confirmed its intention to pursue a nuclear agreement with Iran’s regime.

“We are doing everything we can not only to support the human rights and the aspirations for greater freedom of the Iranian people, but also to hold accountable those within the Iranian system that are responsible for violence against the Iranian people,” said U.S. State Department spokesperson Ned Price. “When it comes to Iran, though, there would be no greater challenge to the U.S., to our partners, and to the broader international system than an Iran with a nuclear weapon,” said Price.

Price acknowledged that while a deal is not guaranteed to come together, he stated that America has been “sincere and steadfast” in negotiating a potential return to the nuclear agreement but reiterated that the U.S. is “not willing to bend.”

Many experts are comparing the President’s decision to negotiate with the regime amid the crackdowns to President Obama’s actions during the 2009 Green Revolution, where Iranian citizens took to the streets to protest the rigged presidential election results.

Iranian leaders like exiled Prince Reza Pahlavi stated that a nuclear agreement with Iran would be “worse” than the one signed in 2015.

“The Iranian regime has the capability, the technology, and the material to fabricate a bomb,” Pahlavi said. According to the Prince, the failure of the original Iran nuclear agreement would result in “the regime becoming even more radical.”

“Repeating the same mistake with hindsight is even worse than the first one,” he added.

Lawmakers in the House and Senate have called on the administration to cancel nuclear negotiations with Iran and enact a maximum pressure campaign against the regime just like the former Trump administration did. Members of Congress from both political sides have vowed that they will not vote to lift sanctions from Iran or officially finalize a nuclear agreement should one come through.
