FBI Issues Startling Warning, Stating Trump Allies Are In Danger As Iranian Assassin Is On The Loose

According to a report by Newsweek published on Monday, March 4, 2024, the FBI in Miami has issued a warning regarding a wanted Iranian assassin believed to be responsible for targeting former and current public officials associated with the Trump administration.

Majid Dastjani Farahani, an Iranian intelligence officer, is being sought for questioning about the recruitment of individuals for various operations in the United States.

The FBI suspects Farahani’s involvement in deadly attacks as revenge for the killing of IRGC-QF Commander Qasem Soleimani.

According to the FBI, Farahani allegedly recruited individuals for surveillance activities, targeting religious sites, businesses, and other facilities within the United States.

It is believed that Farahani acted as a representative of Iran’s Ministry of Intelligence and Security.

The release of this information by the FBI comes at a time of heightened tensions between Iran and the U.S., especially after three U.S. service members were killed in Jordan earlier this year.

President Joe Biden attributed the attack to “radical, Iran-backed militant groups operating in Syria and Iraq,” sparking speculation about Iran’s involvement.

Iranian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Nasser Kanaan has denied his country’s involvement in the attacks, stating that Iran does not participate in the decision-making process of resistance groups.

However, Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi’s 2022 speech holds a different narrative.

Raisi accused former President Donald Trump and former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo of orchestrating the killing of Soleimani.

Raisi stated, “If Trump and Pompeo are not tried in a fair court for the criminal act of assassinating General Soleimani, Muslims will take our martyr’s revenge. The aggressor, murderer and main culprit—the then-President of the United States—must be tried and judged under the (Islamic) law of retribution, and God’s ruling must be carried out against him.”

In response to these allegations, the U.S. Treasury Department imposed sanctions against both Farahani and another Iranian intelligence officer named Mohammad Mahdi Khanpour Ardestani in December 2023.

The Treasury Department revealed that these individuals had recruited personnel for various operations in the United States, including targeting current and former U.S. government officials as an act of retribution for Soleimani’s death.

They were also found to have recruited individuals for surveillance activities centered around religious sites, businesses, and other facilities within the country.

The FBI’s warning regarding Farahani and the ongoing tensions between Iran and the U.S. have raised concerns about the safety of Trump allies.

With potential threats against public officials, law enforcement agencies will remain on high alert as they actively pursue the capture of the Iranian assassin.
