According to FBI files, Poursafi told a person, who was actually an FBI informant, that he wanted Bolton to be purged or eliminated.

He provided the person with Bolton’s office address, the affidavit revealed.

It was a presumed retaliation for a US airstrike that killed Iran general Qassem Soleimani at Baghdad airport in 2020, the Justice Department said.

Assistant Attorney General in the US, Matthew Olsen, said: “This was not an idle threat.”

Bolton thanked the FBI for their work on the case and the Secret Service for protecting him.

He said: “While much cannot be said publicly right now, one point is indisputable.

“Iran’s rulers are liars, terrorists, and enemies of the United States.”
