The strangest part of this story is why no one in the media is asking about the motive.
Two men were arrested in Washington DC Wednesday for pretending to be federal operatives who gifted Secret Service agents with lavish handouts in an effort to gain access to them
Why did they want to gain access to them?
People do this kind of thing to gain access to politicians or to decisionmakers, they don’t do it to gain access to protective detail people.
Arian Taherzadeh, 40, and Haider Ali, 36 posed as members of a fake Department of Homeland Security task force investigating violence connected to the Jan. 6, 2021 riot at the US Capitol, the feds said.
Taherzadeh is an Iranian last name. Haider Ali would also seem to come from a background that implies a Muslim country. Their religion obviously isn’t stated or commented on, but raises questions. They are at the very least from Muslim-origin countries. Shouldn’t that trigger some inquiries?
The suspects allegedly set up the ruse to ingratiate themselves with Secret Service agents, who they supplied with rent-free luxury apartments, high-end electronics and policing equipment.
One of the duped agents worked on first lady Jill Biden’s security detail and was offered a $2,000 assault rifle from Taherzadeh, according to prosecutors.
In another instance, the suspects allegedly supplied an agent with a penthouse apartment that was rented for more than $40,000 a year.
Where were they getting all this money and what was in it for them? Why throw a $2K rifle at a secret service agent working a security detail?
Questions no one in the media seems to even admit are there.
Is this just about corruption or a whole lot more?
