Trump assassination attempt has the FBI on red alert

The political temperature in the country is reaching a boiling point. Anything could happen next.

And now this Trump assassination attempt has the FBI on red alert.

The FBI is looking for an Iranian intelligence operator who reportedly plotted to assassinate current and past U.S. government leaders, including Mike Pompeo, former Secretary of State under President Donald Trump.

Last week, the Bureau’s Miami field office issued a public notice seeking information on Majid Dastjani Farahani, who is suspected of working for Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security, according to Semafor.

The FBI issued a Most Wanted warning for Farahani, 42, on Friday, stating that he knows Farsi, French, Spanish, and English and frequently travels between Iran and Venezuela.

According to the FBI, Farahani was recruiting “individuals for various operations in the United States, to include lethal targeting of current and former United States Government officials” as part of a revenge operation for the U.S.’s assassination of Iranian Major General Qasem Soleimani in 2020 under Trump and Pompeo.

Semafor said that U.S. sources said Pompeo and Brian Hook, who used to be the special envoy for Iran, were protected 24 hours a day after the FBI warned about Farahani.

In 2022, the Department of Justice prosecuted members of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) for allegedly plotting to assassinate former National Security Advisor John Bolton, who formerly worked for Trump.

Farahani has also been accused of recruiting individuals to conduct “surveillance activities focused on religious sites, businesses, and other facilities in the United States.”

Soleimani was assassinated in a U.S. drone operation ordered by President Trump in January 2020.

The vicious Iranian general has been responsible for the killings of hundreds of American troops in Iraq, and the U.S. State Department claims Soleimani was personally responsible for 17% of all U.S. personnel deaths throughout the Iraq War.

Shortly after Soleimani’s murder, Iran’s top general and other leaders promised to exact retribution on the United States. Iran’s instability was shown again when Iranian-backed Hamas militants launched an offensive on Israel on October 7, murdering over 1,200 people and taking hundreds hostage in the Gaza Strip.

Two months after the terrorist attack on Israel, the IRGC stated that it was “one of the revenges” for Soleimani’s death.

While Hamas stated that its 10/7 atrocities were not motivated by the same reasons as the IRGC, Iran’s warnings and appetite for killing in response to the death of its beloved general were clearly heard.

In January, U.S. forces were ambushed by Iranian-backed militants, killing three American soldiers.

The Iranian-backed Houthis have also caused havoc in the Red Sea and the Middle East, conducting attacks on cargo boats and Israeli troops.

The United States has responded to persistent terrorist activities with limited strikes inside Yemen and a drone operation that killed multiple terrorist commanders in Baghdad, Iraq, last month.
