US Vice President Mike Pence thanked the Drug Control Administration (DEA) on Thursday for an investigation in Venezuela, pointing to Nicolas Maduro.
"The DEA research has explicitly pointed to the Nicolás Maduro dictatorship and has helped arrest several of his relatives and people close to him, accusing drug trafficking," said Pence.
A US official said the Department's contribution was "empowered" to support the temporary president, Juan Guaido. "Freedom comes in Venezuela," he said.
