US court charges Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps member with attempted assassination of John Bolton

The US Justice Department has announced it has uncovered an Iranian plot to assassinate former national security adviser John Bolton and indict a member of the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps.

The Justice Department said Shahram Borsafi, 45, also known as Mehdi Rezaee, offered $300,000 to a man in the United States for killing Bolton in retaliation for the U.S. assassination of Revolutionary Guard commander Qasem Soleimani in January 2020.
