The first vice president of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV), Diosdado Cabello, rejected the pronouncement of “support” for the fight against corruption undertaken by the Venezuelan State made by the spokesman for National Security of the White House, John Kirby.
“The United States does not have to get involved in the internal affairs of Venezuela or of any country, they are a few entrepitos,” said the PSUV leader, who ironized the interest that the United States hides behind this statement.
“It seems that they are interested in knowing who the corrupt are in order to take them there to protect them, because that is the policy of the United States,” he said.
During his program Con el Mazo Dando, broadcast this Wednesday, he recalled that as part of this policy to protect corrupt Venezuelans, several people are being prosecuted in Venezuela in the United States.
“They are protecting (Nelson) Mezerhane, there they are protecting (Hebert) García Plaza, there they are protecting (Rafael) Isea, they are protecting Eligio Cedeño and stop counting, they are protecting Rafael Ramírez, Clíver (Alcalá), they are They take the corrupt and protect them there, it seems that they are waiting to offer them protection, Cristopher Figuera is there, they take them to protect them,” he said.
Cabello’s response comes after the pronouncement of the US government spokesman, who at a press conference offered this Wednesday asserted that the United States is in favor of “efforts against corruption, especially in Venezuela and we will continue to monitor the situation.”
Kirby added that “we have to wait and see what happens, but we would urge the Venezuelan authorities to act in a transparent and credible manner.”
Regarding these words, Cabello emphasized that this “crusade against corruption” is not aimed at ingratiating himself with the United States authorities, for which reason he insisted on his call to avoid interventionist pronouncements.
“Don’t get involved in what you don’t care about, gentlemen from the United States, this is the national government on instructions from President Nicolás Maduro who has started this crusade against corruption and we do it not so that you feel good, we do it because we feel good because that is a mandatory battle in a real Revolution, not with you who have the largest washing machine in the world and not exactly clothes”, he sentenced.
