Now his Public Financial Disclosure Report reveals just how much money Bolton was paid by the group to speak at its events: ‘Globe Events–European Iranian Events 1st July 2017’.

On Assignment had aired a segment titled ‘The MEK’s man inside the White House’ asked ‘How did a fringe Iranian opposition group with a history of assassinating Americans get so cozy with the likes of John Bolton and Rudy Giuliani?’ Bolton was reluctant to reveal his financial links with the MEK to journalists.
