HMM: Guaido supporters in Venezuela ‘took control’ of diplomatic buildings, US says.

Spokesman Robert Palladino told reporters that Guaido’s supporters were in possession of two military attache installations in Washington D.C. and the Venezuelan consulate in New York. Palladino added that the Trump administration was “pleased to support these requests.”

Carlos Vecchio, Guaido’s ambassador to the United States, posted videos on Twitter of diplomats and military officers walking through the vacant buildings. At the consulate in Midtown Manhattan, staffers removed images of disputed Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his predecessor Hugo Chavez from the walls.

“It is impossible not to feel emotion as we enter this homeland, the sovereign territory of our #Venezuela, liberated from the usurper regime Of Maduro,” tweeted Gustavo Marcano, another pro-Guaido official. “This is what will happen throughout our country when the usurpation ceases!”

If we have to send pallets of cash to anyone overseas, it ought to be to people like these.
