The U.S. Department of Justice on Thursday unsealed a searing criminal
indictment against Venezuelan socialist leader Nicolas Maduro and several
"co-conspirators," accusing them of an array of narcotics and trafficking-
related crimes, including efforts to smuggle drugs into the United States.
At a press conference on Thursday morning, Department of Justice officials
announced a slew of charges pertaining to Maduro's conspiracy to commit
narco-terrorism which carries a minimum of 50 years behind bars. The DOJ
underscored that while he is currently in Venezuela, the 57-year-old is
known to travel outside and is now offering a $15 million reward for
information that will lead to his capture.
The DOJ, emphasizing that the latest round of indictments are the result
of many years of investigation, charged a number of high-ranking "co-

deliberate endeavor by Maduro and his regime to "flood the United States

The announcement of the charges followed months of pressure by President
Trump's administration on Maduro's regime, which the United States
considers illegitimate following an election not deemed satisfactory by
many world powers.
While the United States and more than 100 other countries no longer
recognize Maduro as the legitimate president of Venezuela instead
throwing their support behind opposition figure Juan Guiado coupled with
a laundry list of economic sanctions, Maduro has maintained his position
at the helm in the capital Caracas, overseeing the socialist regime and
commanding the security forces.
The indictment of a functioning head of state is highly unusual and is
bound to ratchet up tensions between Washington and Caracas. However, the
U.S. has long accused Maduro and his government of human rights abuses,
torture, corruption, and paving the way for cartels, terrorist groups and
traffickers to exploit the oil-swathed nation, once the wealthiest in
