Maduro Indicted - $15,000,000 Reward, 2999
Good morning, I’m still reporting on the President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro was indicted by the Drug Enforcement Agency today on charges of drug trafficking.
The Justice Dept. called Maduro the head of a cocaine trafficking group called “The Cartel of the Suns” that exported hundreds of tons of drugs and slapped a $15,000,000 reward for information leading to his capture.
Along with Maduro, another dozen former officials of the Maduro regime including members of the Venezuelan military and the nation’s chief justice.
Indictments were issued in multiple US jurisdictions including New York and Miami on charges of conspiracy, narco-terrorism and money laundering.
The U.S. is among 60 countries that no longer consider Maduro a head of state. They recognize head of Venezuela’s Congress, Juan Guaido, as the rightful leader.
According to Attorney General Bill Barr:
“It’s time to call out this regime for what it is. The Maduro regime is awash in corruption and criminality.”
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo chimed in around noon today:
"While holding key positions in the Maduro regime, these individuals violated the public trust by facilitating shipments of narcotics from Venezuela, including control over planes that leave from a Venezuelan airbase, as well as control of drug routes through the ports in Venezuela."
Pompeo said in total, the State Department would pay cash rewards of up to $55 million for information leading to the arrests or convictions of Maduro and his 12 co-conspirators.
Indicting foreign leaders is trick business. Usually they enjoy immunity from prosecution under U.S. law.
I’m still reporting from just outside the citadel of American freedom. Good day.
