Sheikh Meshal bin Hamad Al Thani

Ambassador to the United States from Qatar
Embassy of the State of Qatar
2555 M Street, NW
Washington, DC 20037

Dear Ambassador Al Thani:

I write to you to bring to your attention a matter of grave concern regarding violations of
international law, U.S. law, and basic human decency.

A team of intelligence community and law enforcement personnel, experts, and attorneys
have generated information regarding your government’s hostile intelligence operations against
United States citizens through registered and unregistered agents of your government operating in
the United States, as well as through agents operating outside of the United States.

I and people working in my employ have discovered the identities of the U.S. citizen and
foreign actors your government hired and directed in these operations. Some agents acting on your
behalf were paid “under the table” in violation of several U.S. and state laws. Your agents’
commission of espionage against U.S. citizens may have violated numerous federal and state
statutes. The elaborate information we have generated about your operation will definitely alarm the
American public and its leaders.

Your government’s actions against U.S. citizens will certainly jeopardize your nation’s
relationship with the United States during a sensitive and costly political time for your nation. Your
agents boldly moved funds through illicit channels, front entities, and employed unregistered
sub-hires. The activities of your agents, their handlers, and your government will trigger numerous
law enforcement authorities as well as defense and intelligence community obligations.

Voluminous information is in the process of being disclosed to the media (American and
international), members of the House and Senate, Trump Administration officials, the Intelligence
Community, the Department of Justice, the Department of the Treasury, the State Department, the
Federal Bureau of Investigation, and officials of foreign nations with whom we are allies. The
American public will justifiably be alarmed by the information that is in the process of being
revealed. This letter serves as notice of forthcoming actions in response to your government’s
hostile intelligence operations in the U.S. homeland, actions that will be taken in order to protect the
property and privacy rights of American citizens.
Your government attempted to silence the voices of U.S. citizens who have called it to
account for its support of terrorism. But, in doing so, your government’s actions have in fact proven
their point. I assure you that the U.S. government and the American public will not tolerate state-
sponsored attacks on American citizens in the United States.

To that end, I have brought your actions not only to the attention of my attorneys, but also to
the attention of the U.S. government, and I have requested that they take appropriate action.
