The Department of Justice on Wednesday said it charged a member of Iran’s Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps with a plot to murder former U.S. national-security adviser John Bolton. The DOJ said that beginning in October 2021, Shahram Poursafi of Tehran attempted to arrange Bolton’s murder, likely in retaliation for the January 2020 death of Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps-Quds Force commander Qasem Soleimani. Bolton, who served as national-security adviser under former President Donald Trump, thanked the Justice Department in a statement and said the “global threat” from the Iranian regime is growing.
