Iranian Hackers Pose as Conservatives, Send Dems Menacing Emails to Depict GOPers as Hateful Thugs


Two Iranian citizens were indicted Thursday for an effort to sway voters in the United States prior to the 2020 presidential election.

The indictment said voters were then sent threatening emails purporting to come from the right-wing group the Proud Boys.
