US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said that Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro was “getting prepared to get on his airplane and leave the country” before he stopped at “the direction of the Russians,” while speaking at an awards ceremony in Washington DC on Tuesday.

Maduro dismissed Pompeo’s assertion during a televised address to the Venezuelan nation on Tuesday, while Russian Foreign Ministry spokesperson Maria Zakharova has also refuted the claim.

Venezuelan opposition leader Juan Guaido called for an uprising on Tuesday to remove Maduro from power and some members of the military have reportedly defected to support him.

Venezuela has been in a political crisis since January 23, when Guaido declared himself interim-president, in a move that was rapidly granted official recognition by the United States and several other countries and international bodies.

As Pompous Pompeo infamously himself said of the CIA that he was once in control of :-

” We lie, We cheat, We steal ”
This statement is on video for all with a brain to see.

All his bluster is US black propaganda that attempts to create reality out of the US ‘narrative’.

The actual reality for Pompeo is that he is eating far too much and has put on a huge amount of weight. He needs to lose weight fast, or risk a heart attack 🙂

” We lie, We cheat, We steal ”
=> So do ALL intelligence agencies! This is the job, baby!
Putin also confessed that the KGB used to create fake delirious weapons projects to push the Yankees into overspending in their military, and he had great fun at doing this.
BTW, it’s exactly what his 6 strategic projects he made public 1 year ago are all about.
