BREAKING NEWS EXCLUSIVE: Biden Administration Ignored Request to Arrest Iranian Cyber-Terrorist targeting Trump’s Campaign

The Biden administration is refusing to assist in the defection of an Iranian cyber-terrorist on the FBI’s Most Wanted list who is involved in a disinformation operation against Donald Trump’s campaign, according to information provided by a retired decorated FBI special agent.

“We’re fighting to do this before the election to protect its integrity,” Joseph F. O’Brien, who worked for the Bureau for nearly two decades, told Baltimore Post-Examiner in a statement. He also co-wrote The New York Times best-seller book Boss of Bosses: The FBI and Paul Castellano about the fall of the NYC mob boss.

“Iran is using the southern border to bring in its citizens and social media to manipulate Americans,” he said. “We have to stop this. I’m fighting to get the attention of the U.S. government.”

OBrien’s website calls out the FBI for failing to help and includes a 59-minute recording of his calls to law enforcement and government officials. He claims the “Cyber Terrorist has been under duress from Iranian Government since 2019, forced at gunpoint to hack into the U.S financial sector and spread mis-information across social media to prevent Donald J. Trump from being re-elected.”

The Justice Department also is offering up to a $10 million reward for information on what the fugitive claims to know regarding U.S. election interference by Iran.

The suspected cyber-terrorist is one of seven Iranian agents involved in the operation and listed on the FBI’s Most Wanted poster. O’Brien would not identify which one of the seven Iranians wanted to turn himself in because of security concerns. The suspect wants to defect to the U.S. with his wife and children even if that means serving time in an American prison, according to information obtained by O’Brien from the fugitive.

The suspected cyber-terrorist first tried to surrender in 2019, which is when the operation to sabotage Trump is believed to have begun.

O’Brien has offered to personally deliver and surrender the fugitive to U.S. authorities at any authorized location and to assume the financial costs of doing so. The surrender of the fugitive could be followed by the surrender of another fugitive on the list, according to information obtained by O’Brien from the fugitive.

Communications between O’Brien and the fugitive are documented in both recorded video calls and WhatsApp messages.

The suspected cyber-terrorist cannot leave Iran without permission from the regime, which holds his passport.

“The former president has a right to know that not only are the Iranians actively targeting him, but they are interfering in our elections at the highest level,”  OBrien’s agent, Beverly Hills Press Agency said in a statement to the Post-Examiner.

The U.S. government’s incompetence or collusion and indeed the threats we face. Joe and our office are working on our own dime. We have contacted the FBI on 7 occasions, the FBI press office, the State Dept. 5 times, and every time were told they can’t help. How hard is it to surrender a MOST WANTED TERRORIST? It seems that they don’t want the surrender to happen. If our agency and a highly decorated former FBI Special Agent can’t make this happen, what chance would any of the public have?”

Both the State Department and the FBI declined to comment to the Baltimore Post-Examiner on the matter.

The Trump campaign did not get back to the Post-Examiner by deadline.

FBI and State Department ignore suspected cyber-terrorist to surrender

Efforts by Beverly Hills Press Agency to contact the FBI and the State Department through phone calls and emails began in April and are ongoing.

Below is a timeline of events that transpired on May 23:

12:16 p.m.– Beverly Hills Press Agency called FBI headquarters in Washington, D.C., and asked to speak directly with Oliver E. Rich Jr., who is Assistant Director of the International Operations Division.

The Bureau operator initially said she did not know who Rich was but later acknowledged his position after being duly informed by Beverly Hills Press Agency, and then said the call could not be transferred to such a “high-ranking official.”

Beverly Hills Press Agency was instead connected to a “Unit Chief” and left a voicemail for that official. The message has since gone unanswered.

Rich is the point person at the FBI to arrange the surrender of the fugitive.

12:34 p.m.- Beverly Hills Press Agency called the State Department in hopes of speaking with someone at the Department’s Rewards for Justice Program, which offers rewards of up to $10 million for credible information about attempts by foreign actors to influence U.S. elections.

The Post-Examiner previously reported on problems with payouts related to the Department’s Rewards program.

Beverly Hills Press Agency first was connected to an automated line at State and later to an operator who transferred the call to the Department of Justice, the agency that houses and oversees the FBI.

Once the call arrived at DoJ, Beverly Hills Press Agency was transferred to the Department Executive Secretary and left a voicemail. The message has since gone unanswered.

4:00 p.m.- Beverly Hills Press Agency emailed the Trump Organization’s press office. The email has since gone unanswered.

O’Brien also wrote a letter to the former president’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr. The letter has since gone unanswered.

Beverly Hills Press Agency has and is making repeated attempts to reach the Trump campaign to notify them of the breach through both public and back channels.

Some of the phone calls between O’Brien and federal agencies can be heard on O’Brien’s website.

In one phone call, O’Brien’s efforts to surrender the fugitive were outright dismissed by an FBI agent in the New York field office, who told O’Brien that the fugitive: “can turn himself in, if he wants.”

In another call, an FBI official told O’Brien that the agency would not facilitate the arrest of the fugitive until the fugitive was on U.S. soil. The official recommended instead contacting the State Department. O’Brien again called State and was given the same run-around as was done before.

The operation 

The attempt to undermine Trump involves social media and the use of fake foreign-linked AI content.

It reached its climax in the lead-up to the 2020 campaign. Iran is already doing the same thing in this year’s campaign, according to information provided to O’Brien by the fugitive.

Additional information provided by the suspected cyber-terrorist to O’Brien shows that Iran has tried to hack into U.S. financial markets, and that Tehran is taking advantage of arguably lax security measures at the U.S. southern border to bring in foreign nationals.

The fugitive also has crucial information about Iran’s drone program, parts procurement, and the location of related facilities.

Why target Trump? 

Iran chose to target Trump because of the strong sanctions placed on Tehran during his administration, according to information obtained by O’Brien from the fugitive. The sanctions nearly crippled Iran’s economy.

So, Iran sees President Joseph R. Biden as a better business partner, according to information provided to O’Brien by the fugitive.

In October 2023, the Biden administration unfroze $6 billion in Iranian assets to secure the release of American hostages held by the Iranian-funded terrorist group Hamas. Republicans blasted the decision as appeasement.

The Biden administration has sanctioned over 600 Iranian individuals and significantly less than the 1,500 sanctions issued by the Trump administration.

The most recent round of sanctions was put into place in April following an Iranian drone and missile attack on Israel. The attack was for the most part thwarted with assistance from the U.S., U.K., and France.

Iran is the world’s largest state-sponsor of terrorism and is believed to be enriching uranium-a process that can be used to build nuclear weapons. Iran denies having a nuclear weapons program.

The Biden administration has sought to discourage Iran from developing nuclear weapons via informal talks with the regime.

Under Trump, the U.S. withdrew from the 2015 nuclear deal that had been brokered by the Obama administration. The deal was designed to slow down the speed of Iran’s nuclear program.

Critics charged that Iran had violated the spirit of the agreement by continuing to build missiles and by denying international observers access to nuclear sites. The deal did not address Iran’s support for international terrorism, which is often carried out by proxies.
