Trump Admin Indicts Venezuela’s Maduro for Drug and Gun Trafficking

WFB: The Trump administration announced on Thursday it is indicting Venezuelan president Nicolás Maduro and 14 of his government officials for narco-terrorism and drug trafficking.

The surprise indictment unveiled by the Justice Department alleges that Maduro and his allies engaged in a “narco-terrorism conspiracy” to export cocaine and weapons into the United States.

The Trump administration has been seeking to depose the dictator for months, alleging he stole the country’s 2019 elections from democratic reformer Juan Guaidó. The charges leveled against Maduro and his allies carry more than 50 years of mandatory prison time.

“The Venezuelan regime, once led by Nicolás Maduro Moros, remains plagued by criminality and corruption,” Attorney General William Barr said in a statement. “For more than 20 years, Maduro and a number of high-ranking colleagues allegedly conspired with the FARC [Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia], causing tons of cocaine to enter and devastate American communities. Today’s announcement is focused on rooting out the extensive corruption within the Venezuelan government—a system constructed and controlled to enrich those at the highest levels of the government.”

“The United States will not allow these corrupt Venezuelan officials to use the U.S. banking system to move their illicit proceeds from South America nor further their criminal schemes,” Barr said.

The State Department is offering rewards of more than $15 million for information leading to Maduro’s arrest. Another $15 million is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of Maduro allies Cabello Rondon, Carvajal Barrios, and Alcala Cordones, all of whom are alleged to have participated in the narcotics trade. more here

  5. I have a friend who rode his motorcycle to the edge of the Tierra Del Fuego, from Oregon, via Canada, (I told him his GPS was screwed up.) and he and his wife rode their Dual sports through Venezuela on the way. He said the citizens there, were very nice and friendly. He said it was the government that was bad. Almost sounds like Oregon.
    Fuk you, Kate Brown, Jeff Merkley, and Ron Wyden!. . . .

  6. @MJA — Nice graphic! You may want to update it, though. The word agujero is indeed Spanish for “hole” but it’s the kind of hole you’d have, say, in your shoe. For a pit in the ground, filled with something, say, shit, that would be un pozo.

    …dispuestos para la defensa de nuestro agujero pozo de mierda.
