‘Does Spain have anything to say?’ Venezuela fumes after WSJ ‘confirms’ Guaido ally plotted to topple Maduro from SPANISH EMBASSY

…from Russia Today, Moscow

This article is from RT and RT soft of loves Venezuela’s Maduro and likes to look like it is backing Venezuela although when that Trumptard beleaguered nation needed real help, only Iran stood by them and Russia ran away.

Now RT is trying to play the Maduro card again, though RT is really in love with Trump whose bodyguard, Jordan Goudreau, was sent to Venezuela to murder Maduro.

Get it?

The lesson here, RT is shit, Russian’s are con men like Trump and trust no one. 

[ Editor’s Note: The US Special Forces team of Jordan Goudreau is back in the news. US interim puppet president Juan Guaido’s man on the ground commander of the coup attempt, Leopoldo López, is now fingered for the deed.

We have not heard a word from Guaido in a long time.

The goal was the kidnapping of Maduro to be taken to the US on trumped up Trump drug charges, which a not too swift Trump had to have signed off on, but with the usual layers to distance himself if it blew up, which it did.

Juan Gauido himself has not been on ice, Trump’s smokescreen for all of the Venezuelan assets that have literally been hijacked from a financially struggling Venezuelan people hoping to  turn them against Maduro.

The same game was tried on Putin, and nipped when he threw on the NGOs interfering in the Russian elections out. While the opposition had been polling 35% previously, with tons of US money to pump them up, once their US funding was cut off they polled 15% in the next election.

The US anti-Putin propaganda has been childish, an embarrassment to the American people

None of the claims of Russian interference in the Trump 2016 election even pretend to touch the level of the US attack on Russia’s election. A Facebook buy of $5000 comes to mind, and some Twitter ads, inconsequential ones.

The Wall Street Journal broke this new story, and it is not a good target for being smeared as a socialist Maduro lover.

I would suggest that the timing of this story might be a reminder of Trump’s pitiful foray into the South American regime change business, although he did well looting Venezuela’s long time bank accounts and assets in the US, something others will take note of Jim W. Dean ]

Caracas has lashed out at Spain after it was revealed that Juan Guaido’s mentor, Leopoldo Lopez, residing in the Spanish embassy in Venezuela was behind the botched incursion and coup attempt involving the US mercenaries.

“Does the Spanish ambassador know that Leopoldo López has held and continues to hold video conferences with the sole purpose of going on with his plans to assassinate President Nicolás Maduro?” Venezuela’s Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez said in an emotional TV address.

The minister described Lopez as a “criminal” who planned a May military incursion involving US ex-soldiers and aimed at toppling the Venezuela government. An influential opposition politician, Lopez, is considered to be the mentor of the US-backed self-proclaimed “interim president,” Juan Guaido.

Lopez was under house arrest since 2014, but was freed in April 2019 during an attempt to topple Maduro, only to seek refuge in the Spanish embassy after the attempt failed. He lived in the embassy ever since as the Spanish government refused to hand him over to Caracas.

Ironically, the Lopez’ role in the attempted coup was corroborated by an American media outlet – the Wall Street Journal – that has recently published an article describing how Lopez and his allies “shopped” for mercenaries ahead of the failed coup attempt.

Does the Spanish government have anything to say about this?

Caracas had its own evidence of Lopez’ involvement, though. In an audio presented by Rodriguez to the Venezuelan media, a Venezuelan deserter identified as Cliver Alcala confessed that “the people of Leopoldo” introduced him to Jordan Goudreau – a US special forces veteran and founder of private security firm Silvercorp USA that was involved in the May military incursion.

The Spanish officials have so far not commented on the statements made by Caracas. Meanwhile, Rodriguez said he invited the EU High Representative for Foreign Relations Josep Borrell to discuss the issue.

Jordan Goudreau, who got in way over this head, signing a coup agreement that bought him a prison cell.

Earlier, interrogations of the two former US Green Berets made public by Caracas revealed the role of American mercenaries in the operation aimed particularly at capturing Maduro and “putting him on a plane” to the US. They were among a guerilla group that crossed into Venezuela from Colombia in May but were captured by the Venezuelan forces.

Caracas then accused Colombia and Washington of being behind the plot, prompting US President Donald Trump to deny it – by claiming he would rather order a full-scale “invasion” instead of a covert operation.
