According to the report, the FBI agents visited Tsarnaev at his home on Norfolk Street in Cambridge. Tsarnaev and another person, whose name was redacted from the FBI report, told agents that the four mysterious men had spoken with the unnamed person and asked for Tsarnaev. They did not provide contact numbers, however, only saying they would be back the next day.
But wait, there’s more:
The FBI has previously acknowledged that it interviewed Tsarnaev in early 2011 at the request of a foreign government, later confirmed to be Russia, “based on information that he was a follower of radical Islam.”
Here is an excerpt from the 2011 request for information by…… wait for it, RUSSIA!!
Once the FBI learned the identities of the two brothers today, the FBI reviewed its records and determined that in early 2011, a foreign government asked the FBI for information about Tamerlan Tsarnaev. The request stated that it was based on information that he was a follower of radical Islam and a strong believer, and that he had changed drastically since 2010 as he prepared to leave the United States for travel to the country’s region to join unspecified underground groups.
The FBI presumably did not have enough manpower to keep tabs on the Tsarnaev brothers, as they were busy running covert surveillance on Donald trump to see if he would say anything mean about then President Obama.
