MANCHESTER, N.H. (Diya TV) — Entrepreneur turned political figure, Vivek Ramaswamy, received a precautionary warning from former FBI agent Mike Wyatt during a recent campaign stop in Indianola, Iowa.

Wyatt, a former SWAT team member with over two decades of FBI service, expressed reservations about safety risks and the current state of the FBI. Wyatt voiced concerns about the politicization of the bureau, drawing parallels to historical issues dating back to the era of J. Edgar Hoover.

The candid conversation has brought attention to worries about corruption and politicization within federal agencies, with Wyatt suggesting that these issues have persisted since the 1960s.

Amidst these discussions, a separate incident emerged as a New Hampshire man, Tyler Anderson, was arrested for threatening Ramaswamy and his supporters at a campaign event. The U.S. Department of Justice revealed that Anderson responded to a Ramaswamy campaign text with a death threat.

Ramaswamy’s campaign confirmed the threat, expressing gratitude for law enforcement’s swift response and professionalism. Anderson, a 30-year-old Dover resident, admitted to sending threatening messages to Ramaswamy and “multiple other campaigns.”

Ramaswamy, in response to questions by reporters, said “I’m grateful to law-enforcement for responding rapidly and as effectively as they did. I’m also grateful to my team and many retired New Hampshire police officers and New Hampshire, police officers and local PD.”
