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

He gave the person Bolton’s office address, the affidavit said.

It was in alleged retaliation for a US airstrike that killed Iranian general Qassem Soleimani at Baghdad airport in 2020, the Justice Ministry said.

Assistant Attorney General Matthew Olsen said: “It wasn’t an empty threat.”

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

He said: “While not much can be said publicly at this time, one point is undeniable.

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