Here is just one example that Iran is trying to cover up some of it's activities and it is not from the US government but from the IAEA.
Also I read your "source " link and and if you read the whole article you will see that it says :
"The IAEA said last week that Iran had doubled the number of uranium enrichment centrifuges in an underground bunker in a few months, showing it
continued to expand its nuclear program despite sanctions and the threat of an Israeli attack. The new machines are not yet operating, it added.
It also said that in the last decade, it had become “increasingly concerned about the possible existence in Iran of undisclosed nuclear-related
activities involving military related organizations”.
Nuclear proliferation expert Mark Fitzpatrick, director of the International Institute of Strategic Studies think-tank and a former senior U.S. state
department official, said that on one level Ryabkov’s remarks were in line with Western views.
“If … he means (Russia sees) no evidence that Iran is aiming to cross the threshold from capability to weapons production, then Ryabkov’s
statement is the same as the collective view of the United States and its European allies.
“But Ryabkov goes too far in giving Iran the benefit of the doubt when he says Russia sees no signs of a military dimension … Maybe he means that
the evidence is not yet confirmed. But there are certainly ample ‘signs’,” he said.
“Surely Russian intelligence is not so blind.” :End Quote
