National security adviser John Bolton said Sunday that Venezuelan socialist president Nicolas Maduro could have set up his own assassination attempt Saturday in order to score political points against the “Far Right” opposition leader and spark conspiracy theories in his country about American involvement.

AFP reports: “Maduro pointed the finger at outgoing Colombian President Santos and “the ultra-right wing,” a term he uses to describe domestic opposition, as a mysterious rebel group claimed responsibility.
US national security advisor John Bolton insisted there was “no US government involvement” and even suggested that the incident could have been “a pretext set up by the regime itself.'”
The use of bomber drones at a Caracas military parade Saturday justifies arrests of opposition leaders in the country, according to the Venezuelan government.
The so-called “National Movement of Soldiers in T-Shirts” is not well known in Venezuela, according to reputable sources, but nevertheless claimed responsibility for attacking Maduro’s parade. Maduro’s claim of Colombian government involvement on the day of the Colombian president Santos’ daughter’s baptism was strongly denied by the Colombian government.
Maduro is presently presiding over one of the worst chaotic downfalls of a South American nation in modern times, as citizens stalk zoo animals as potential sources of food and innocent people lay forgotten in dilapidated state-run hospitals.
Here is footage of the attack at the parade, which temporarily froze television coverage:
NEW: Joe Biden Bashes Incoming Trump Administration In Leaked 2016 Call to President of Ukraine
Joe Biden speaks in critical and partisan terms of the incoming Trump administration in a new leaked call to the President of Ukraine unveiled Wednesday.
In the call, conducted in November 2016 a week after then-candidate Trump’s election victory, Biden bashes the incoming administration to the foreign leader, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko. Biden assails the Trump transition team as incompetent, turning down the idea of visiting the country before the January transition before Trump is “fully briefed” on matters related to Ukraine.
In a second call, Biden asks for Poroshenko to describe his conversations with incoming President Trump, going to to speak of Trump in more dismissive terms. He describes Trump as a “dog who caught the car, and who doesn’t know what to do.” Not quite a “dog-faced pony soldier,” but definitely not an appropriate way for an outgoing vice president to describe an incoming president to a foreign leader.
A Ukrainian comedian originally released the calls, suggesting questionable operational security within the conversations of Joe Biden and Poroshenko. Biden has a lengthy history of ethical questions regarding his relationship with Ukraine, including looking the other way as his son Hunter secured an extremely lucrative position at a Ukrainian oil company without any experience whatsoever in the energy industry.
Biden himself would later go on to demand the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating corruption allegations against the younger Biden, a clear conflict of interest Biden merely dismissed when he spoke openly of securing the prosecutor’s firing at a Council on Foreign Relations public event.
This is a totally inappropriate way for a Vice President to speak to a foreign leader, and the public should be concerned about how Biden plans to conduct diplomacy should he be elected President.
