On January 9, 2023, the IRGC-affiliated "SEPAHCYBERY" Telegram channel published an animated video depicting an evidence board with photos of former U.S. President Donald Trump and several top U.S. defense officials. The video also featured footage of these officials, images of various weapons (including guns, explosives, and poison), footage and images from crime scenes, and a caption that reads: "The perpetrators of general Soleimani martyrdom will be punished for their actions. We will determine how and when to punish. Coming soon..." The video ends with an image of the IRGC's logo and the IRGC's official Telegram handle.

The U.S. officials shown on the evidence board are: former National Security Advisor Robert C. O'Brien; Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Gen. Mark Milley; former NSC MENA affairs director Robert Greenway; U.S. Cyber Command Commander Gen. Paul Nakasone; former Deputy National Security Advisor for MENA Affairs Victoria Coates; former Deputy National Security Advisor Matthew Pottinger; Director of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency Vice Admiral Frank Whitworth; Joint Chiefs of Staff director Lt. Gen. Andrew Poppas; and former U.S. CENTCOM commander Gen. Kenneth McKenzie.
