The Maduro regime is cracking down on people connected to the failed attempt to cause a military uprising earlier this month in Venezuela. Last week, Maduro announced that the “coup” had been stabilized, but now the communist Dictator has taken National Assembly Vice President Edgar Zambrano, who was leaving his Democratic Action Party’s headquarters when he was kidnapped by a commando unit of the SEBIN intelligence agency.
It’s reported that the members of the unit surrounded his car, and then the car was towed a half-hour later with Zambrano inside the car.
While this was taking place, Maduro was on national television announcing an agricultural project, and onlookers shouted “Assassins!” as Zambrano was towed away.
This marks the first arrest after Maduro declared that all those with connection to the “coup” would be reprimanded.
However, this power that Maduro is exerting was moments from being taken away last week as U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had reported that Maduro “had an airplane on the tarmac” and that he was “heading for Havana” to avoid being ousted in a much more violent way.
Senator Marco Rubio (R) commented on the measure that Maduro is now taking to seek revenge against all those who are supporting Juan Guaido, the head of the National Assembly and the figure that many acknowledge to be the true President of Venezuela.
Speaking on the matter, Florida Senator Rubio took to twitter last week, sharing an image of Michael Corleone kissing his brother Fredo after discovering that his brother had betrayed him.
If Maduro remains in power what do you think their future holds?

In the tweet, Rubio explained that “a number of high ranking Maduro regime officials must now deal with the realization that despite their tweets of support & appearance with Maduro on TV last night he knows they plotted against him.”
Rubio then posed the question, “if Maduro remains in power what do you think their future holds?”
