U.S. offers $10 million for info on Iranians indicted for disinformation over 2020 U.S. election
The U.S. Department of State is offering a $10 million reward for information about the activities of two Iranian nationals charged for cyber activity intended to “intimidate and influence” American voters during the 2020 U.S. presidential campaign.
An indictment unsealed today by the Department of Justice alleges that between September and November 2020, 24-year old Seyyed Mohammad Hosein Musa Kazemi and 27-year old Sajjad Kashian obtained information of more than 100,000 U.S. voters and used it “sow discord among Americans.”
The two suspects tried to compromise close to a dozen state voter websites and found a misconfigured computer that gave them access to the details of voters in one state.
They used the data to distribute false information over Facebook and email about the Democratic Party planning to interfere with the election by exploiting vulnerabilities in voter registration websites and modifying mail-in ballots.
“The False Election Messages were accompanied by a video (the “False Election Video”) carrying the Proud Boys logo, which purported, via simulated intrusions and the use of State-1 voter data, to depict an individual hacking into state voter websites and using stolen voter information to create fraudulent absentee ballots through the Federal Voting Assistance Program (FVAP) for military and overseas voters” – the U.S. Department of Justice
In October, Kazemi and Kashian sent out emails claiming to be from the Proud Boys threatening thousands of registered voters with physical injuries unless they voted for Donald Trump.
The DoJ says that the two suspects “are experienced Iran-based computer hackers.” They worked as contractors for a company (now known as Emennet Pasargad) that provided cybersecurity services for the Iranian government.

For their activity, Kazemi and Kashian received the following charges:
Along with the formulated charges, the Department of the Treasury Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) has imposed sanctions against Kazemi and Kashian, and four other Iranian nationals, part of the Emennet Pasargad leadership.
Furthermore, the Department of State’s Rewards for Justice Program is offering a huge reward for details about the activities of Kazemi and Kashian: up to $10 million each.

The DOJ has arrested at least 25 people affiliated with the Proud Boys for actions connected to the Jan. 6 attack on the Capitol, including four alleged leaders of Proud Boys chapters in Washington, Florida, Pennsylvania and North Carolina.
Yet they haven’t charged a single one, curious.
I haven’t followed all the convictions of the Trump led attempted coup terrorists. I don’t think you meant none have been charged. Maybe you meant tried and convicted. Here is one report of one Proud Boys’ leader / terrorist’s sentencing.
QUOTE: August 23, 2021 at 6:57 p.m. EDT

Henry “Enrique” Tarrio, a national leader of the Proud Boys, a far-right group with a history of violence, was sentenced Monday to five months in jail for two crimes, including setting fire to a stolen Black Lives Matter banner during a tumultuous demonstration in Washington after the election defeat of President Donald Trump.
Too bad they don’t arrest the looters, arsonists, and murderers that belong to ANTIFA and BLM.
Rittenhouse has been found not guilty of the crimes he was charged with. You can be sure that will encourage more armed protesters and anti-protesters using firearms during demonstrations around the country.
