“Yankees go home.”
Those were the words spoken in English by Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro in a live TV appearance Monday, in which he ordered top U.S. diplomats “out of Venezuela,” giving them 48 hours to leave on charges of conspiring with far-right domestic forces to sabotage the country’s economy and power systems.
Maduro declared, “We detected a group of U.S. embassy officials dedicated to meeting the far-right and to financing and encouraging acts of sabotage against the electrical system and Venezuela’s economy.” While the details of these charges are not yet clear, the president said he has evidence that U.S. officials had met with opposition forces in the southwest state of Bolivar.
Marduro announced the expulsion of top embassy official Kelly Keiderling, consular officer David Moo, and embassy political staffer Elizabeth Hoffman. The US embassy soon after released a statement declaring, “We completely reject the Venezuelan government’s allegations of US government involvement in any type of conspiracy to destabilize the Venezuela government.”
