  • Gen. Manuel Ricardo Cristopher Figuera, the ex-spy chief of Venezuela’s President Nicolas Maduro, sat down for an exclusive interview with The Washington Post. Figuera spent nearly two months in hiding in Colombia following the failed April 30th plot to oust Maduro, in which he played a pivotal role. None of the officials named by Figuera responded to requests for comment submitted to Venezuela’s Ministry of Communications.

    Maduro is a Cuban puppet. His inability to make decisions is confirmed in this WP article. Figuera reveals how Raúl Castro literally gives orders, commands to Maduro on the phone. Maduro's speeches and body language are closely monitored by Cubans. His inner circle is Cuban.

    Openly admits that the WP couldn't confirm his allegations but still chose to run the article as if holds merit.. Thats some fine journalism you've got there.

    Funny how Venezuela has voter ID laws and somehow Maduro is a illegitimate Leader. WP is all about democracy but they interviewed a traitor to the Venezuelan people.

    There is no doubt that Maduro is not a good guy. The point is, he was elected and Guaido was not. Who are we to try to organize a regime change? Especially one the Venezuelan people do not support.

    Washington Post friend from the corrupted DC bureaucracy, which makes them enemy of the people and makes all their videos worthless.
    Is that logic or what ?
