UANI describes itself as a "bipartisan, not-for-profit advocacy group leading efforts to warn companies and governments around the world about the dangers posed by the Iranian regime."

In a press release, Bolton said, "Iran poses one of the most serious and sustained threats to America and her allies.

"I’m looking forward to returning to UANI — an organization that has shown tremendous results over the past few years — because it is solely focused on addressing the Iranian threat and it does so successfully."

Bolton left the White House in September, but his name has come up multiple times in House Democrats' ongoing impeachment investigation into Trump.

However, Bolton declined earlier in the month to voluntarily testify to the House Intelligence Committee, stating that he would only testify if the committee issued him a subpoena.

So far, the committee has yet to subpoena Bolton.
