Venezuela’s Maduro set to dissolve national assembly


The Nicholas Maduro regime has confirmed that it will hold a special session of their governing body, a move that U.S.-acknowledged President Juan Guaido says will be all-but end the current Venezuelan opposition government.

Guaido said over the weekend that the Constituent Assembly, which Reuters refers to as “a parallel legislature controlled by the ruling Socialist Party,” is planning on dissolving the opposition legislature and call for new elections.

“It looks like we’re getting to a crisis of justice and these traitorous worms are leaving in a stampede,” Cabello wrote.

Both Florida U.S. Senators Marco Rubio (R) and Rick Scott (R) are also sounding the alarm of what is happening in Venezuela, with Rubio stating that ballots will not be secret under Maduro because his regime “counts the votes,” calling a new, fair election “a farce.”

Maduro has already said that Guaido would face Venezuelan justice for supporting the U.S. economic sanctions President Donald Trump put into place last week.
