On Wednesday, FBI agents arrested Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Ali, 36, for impersonating federal agents. Prosecutors said the men passed themselves off as agents of a phony Homeland Security department and offered gifts to U.S. Secret Service officers, including iPhones, surveillance equipment, drones, a penthouse apartment, and more. The Associated Press reports one of the agents who was offered gifts worked on Dr. Jill Biden’s security detail.
Today, prosecutors are releasing additional information about what was discovered in a search of the suspects’ residence—and it is nothing short of shocking. This case is about to get much, much bigger.
The Washington Post reports one of the men told investigators he has ties to Pakistani intelligence and both men have visas showing travel to Iran and Pakistan.
Federal prosecutors detailed the new findings from their residence, and it would seem that a massive plot was underway.
Stay tuned for details as they become available. It seems there is much more to this story.
