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.

White House admits Iran ‘few weeks or less’ from nuclear breakout; quickly blame Trump

Iran nuclear weapons program

Naturally, the Biden Administration quickly attempted to blame former President Trump for Iran’s most recent nuclear development. It’s not surprising the White House made a desperate attempt to deflect, as Press Secretary Jen Psaki was forced to admit Iran’s “breakout period” for a nuclear weapon “is down from about a year…to just a few weeks or less.”

U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken confirmed Iran’s “breakout” time was “down to a matter of weeks.” The Times of Israel notes that the breakout period refers to the amount of time “it will take Iran to amass enough fissile material for a nuclear weapon, if its chooses to do so.”

The Times of Israel notes that a distinction must be made: “having enough nuclear material for a bomb is not he same as having the capabilities to build the core of the weapon and to attach it to the warhead of a missile, which would likely take more time.”

Psaki told reporters at Tuesday’s press conference that Iran’s nuclear development “definitely worries us.”

“If we go back, under the Iran nuclear deal, Iran’s nuclear program was tightly constrained,” she said. “Since the Trump administration ceased US participation in the deal, Iran has rapidly accelerated its nuclear program.”

“That is a direct impact of pulling out of the nuclear deal, making us less safe, giving us less visibility, and it’s one of the reasons we pursued a diplomatic path again,” Psaki said.

Psaki’s comments are laughable, considering Iran has never given any proof of abiding by any deal. The 2015 nuclear deal gave Iran sanctions relief in exchange for guarantees it would not develop a nuclear weapon.

As the Times of Israel writes, curbing its nuclear weapons development is something Iran “has always denied wanting to do.” In 2018, knowing full well that Iran had zero intention of abiding by the deal, President Trump unilaterally withdrew from the accord and reimposed sanctions against Iran.

Ever since Biden took office, one of the first things his administration did was begin negotiations with Iran via intermediaries in Vienna. The talks have gone nowhere.
