White House CONFIRMS Assassination Plot – Details Pending
(NewsReady.com) – President Joe Biden’s administration has been trying to negotiate a new nuclear deal with Iran almost since the beginning of his term. There have not been any major breakthroughs in more than a year. Worse, it seems the Iranian government is still plotting assassinations.
On April 26, Secretary of State Antony Blinken went before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to give testimony on a number of topics. During his testimony, Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) asked him if it’s true that the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) is “actively trying to murder former senior officials” of the US government. Blinken responded to Cruz by saying there’s not much he can say in an open setting, but there is “an ongoing threat” against both past and present US officials.

I asked Sec. Blinken 3 times if they've at least asked Iran to stop those terror plots, and if Iran said no.

One of the targets of the IRGC is allegedly former Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, who worked under former President Donald Trump.
Senator Todd Young (R-IN) asked the secretary if Iran’s label as a Foreign Terrorist Organization won’t be lifted. The secretary said Iran is required to take certain steps to have the label lifted, and they haven’t done that.
Sec. Blinken made the case that listing #Iran’s IRGC on Foreign Terrorist Org. had minimal impact on the force. its main consequence he said was a travel ban for IRGC generals who have no intention of travel while millions of conscripts are banned from US pic.twitter.com/1sOeJXVdgU

If Iran is threatening former officials and can’t even meet the standards to not be named a terrorist group, then what is the US doing negotiating with them?
