Trump is using President George H. Bush’s 1989 Panama strategy used to remove Manuel Noriega from power and put him on trial for drug trafficking. Trump hopes to invade Venezuela and arrest its President Nicolas Maduro and other top officials for drug trafficking.
Department of Justice officials announced yesterday that Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro has been charged with federal drug trafficking crimes as part of a “far-reaching U.S. investigation” involving prosecutors in New York, Washington, and Miami.
Attorney General William Barr’s announcement of charges being filed against more than a dozen other current and former Venezuelan officials, including the country’s supreme court chief justice and the minister of defense, has given away President Trump’s real goal. To justify the invasion of Venezuela and the potential massacre of tens of thousands so he can take their oil reserves.
Asked about the likelihood of obtaining Maduro’s arrest, Barr is quoted as saying…
“We do expect to gain control of these defendants.”
This may well prove later that the AG is aware of Trump’s plans to invade the South American country.
Meanwhile, our sources from Venezuela tell me they think Maduro and those indicted will wind up getting asylum in Cuba, Russia, or even China before any invasion would take place. It would mean Trump may not get the country’s oil if there’s a peaceful transfer of power.
Maduro is surrounded by Cuban, not Venezuelan security because he fears being assassinated.
