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’.

Richard Engel from NBC’s On Assignment re-tweeted “Finally we have a concrete figure for how much John Bolton was paid to speak at an MEK event last year – $40k acc to his financial disclosure. That was just one of many appearances he’s made over the years, in support of the former terrorist group that wants to take over #Iran.”

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.
