Washington D.C. – Congressman Michael McCaul (R-TX), Lead Republican of the House Foreign Affairs Committee, released the following statement applauding the Justice Deparment’s indictment of Maduro and regime officials. 

“Nicolas Maduro is a criminal and indicted drug trafficker, as are the officials of his illegitimate regime who engage with FARC terrorists in Colombia for personal gain at the expense of the Venezuelan people. I strongly commend the Trump Administration and the Justice Department for taking these bold and necessary actions to hold Maduro and his cronies responsible for their crimes and I look forward to the day they are facing justice in the United States. During these times of crisis, the Venezuelan people need a legitimate government looking out for their interests more than ever.”
