Pompeo: Maduro was leaving, Russia convinced him to stay

CNN-

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo claimed Tuesday that embattled Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro was preparing to leave the country for Cuba, but was talked out of it by Russia.

“We’ve watched throughout the day, it’s been a long time since anyone’s seen Maduro,” Pompeo said in an interview with CNN’s Wolf Blitzer on “The Situation Room.”
“He had an airplane on the tarmac, he was ready to leave this morning as we understand it and the Russians indicated he should stay.”
“He was headed for Havana,” Pompeo said.
The Secretary of State refused to say whether Maduro would be permitted to safely depart for Cuba, instead saying that “Mr. Maduro understands what will happen if he gets on that airplane.”
“He knows our expectations,” Pompeo said when repeatedly pressed on the question.
Pompeo reiterated his support for opposition leader Juan Guaido amid an escalating situation in Venezuela. On Tuesday morning, Guaido, standing alongside a group of soldiers in Caracas, announced an uprising and called for his supporters to take to the streets in an effort to oust Maduro. Confrontations between the two sides turned violent, with more than 50 people being taken to a medical center in the Venezuelan capital.
This story is breaking and will be updated.

  1. I wonder what the Situation Room is like right now??

  2. I’m sure the Russians want Maduro because that’s who they signed all the oil and mineral deals with.

    The new guy can and probably will, alter the terms of the previous deal.

  3. The USA has no right to be trying to overthrow the Maduro government by pushing CIA puppet Guaido into power. Pompeo is a lying, stinking, obese rat.

    “Mike Rivero posted a brilliant piece that makes me know I am not alone on Venezuela

    “Before the fateful day of January 22, fewer than one in five Venezuelans had heard of Juan Guaido. Only a few months ago, the 35-year-old was an obscure character in a politically marginal far-right group closely associated with gruesome acts of street violence. Even in his own party, Guaido had been a mid-level figure in the opposition-dominated National Assembly, which is now held under contempt according to Venezuela’s constitution.
    But after a single phone call from US Vice President Mike Pence, Guaido proclaimed himself as president of Venezuela. Anointed as the leader of his country by Washington, a previously unknown political bottom dweller was vaulted onto the international stage as the US-selected leader of the nation with the world’s largest oil reserves.””

  4. Odd. my Nuremberg translator is refusing to repeat any more of tRuths insane ramblings.

  5. Maduro should be executed if he stays. Guido needs to give him a 45 minute window to get his butt to the airport. Guarantee safe passage, but wheels up in 45 minutes or death. Don’t pull any punches or mince words.

  7. It is entirely legal for our USA government to lie to the American people, in league with all forms of media. Lying propaganda has been the force behind almost all the warfare the US has engaged in for decades. Most Americans don’t even know how much they have been lied to.

    Yes, US Government Propaganda Use Against American Citizens Is Officially Legal Now

    “Anyway, fast forward to the National Defense Authorization Act of 2013, in which the Smith-Mundt Act
    was officially amended to allow materials produced by the State Department and Broadcasting Board of Governors
    to be released inside the United States.
    In other words, Government use of propaganda against the American people became legal.”

    How the NDAA Allows US Gov to Use Propaganda Against Americans
    By Occupy Corporatism – July 22, 2013
    “The amendment sanctions the US government, without restriction, the use of any mode of message to control how we perceive our world. As of now, the level of propaganda in the mainstream media (MSM) is quite high, with all of our television, printed media and internet sites associated with MSM owned by only 5 corporations.
    Without these laws, the lies purveyed as truth to foreigners would find their way to our doorsteps as a purposeful operation enacted by our government. And in the name of national security, the US government could, and probably would, disseminate misinformation to gain public support for otherwise decidedly deplorable actions.”

  8. Where are Danny Glover, Sean Penn, Oliver Stone, Michael Moore and the rest of the wealthy Hollywood Socialists now that Maduro is starving and killing Venezuelans?

  9. @ Ruth – We have EVERY right, we fought, as a country, to get where we are. Ask the veterans that you may or may NOT know.

    Ya like posting here right? YOU can, NOT because of totalitarianism, BUT for Liberty which Venezuela or those other SHITHOLES do NOT have.

    IF we have to protect our modern Monroe Doctrine well then we must. IF YOU think it’s via the CIA then FINE.

    IF you do not know the propaganda is fought with propaganda then you need to re-group.

    GHOST.
