Thank You U.S. Department of Justice

I've always believed that one has to be as frontal in praise as in criticism. Depending on where one stands, the U.S. Department of Justice (DoJ) may have many aspects that deserve criticism, I am sure. With respect to Venezuela and the bunch of chavista narcoterrorists in power, nobody has a cumulative catalogue in exposing galloping and gargantuan corruption that compares to the one published by us in nearly two decades, and no law enforcement or justice system has come close to DoJ in prosecuting the thugs that have literally destroyed our nation.

Persistent rumours about a super indictement against Nicolas Maduro, Cilia Flores, Tareck el Aisami, and Diosdado Cabello are making the rounds. It would be President Trump's administration way of ratcheting up pressure on chavismo, and according to sources could go as far as including Venezuela in the list of States Sponsors of Terrorism along Iran, North Korea, Sudan and Syria.
