    The Trump administration filed criminal charges Thursday in the Southern District of New York against senior officials of the government of Venezuela.
    Otto Frederick Warmbier who was imprisoned in North Korea on a charge of subversion was released by North Korea in a vegetative state and died soon afterward. No charges filed?

    Attorney General William Barr announced narcoterrorism charges against Venezuelan socialist leader Nicolas Maduro for his role in facilitating the global drug trade in coordination with the Colombia-based terrorist group known as the FARC.

    The Justice Department said on Thursday that Maduro formed and leads his own drug ring, dubbed the Cartel of the Sun, and gives the FARC free rein to operate in parts of Venezuela.
    Investigators said Maduro and his co-conspirators were being charged with conspiracy to commit narcoterrorism, conspiracy to import hundreds of tons of cocaine into the United States, and a variety of weapons charges. The department said Maduro expressly indented on flooding the U.S. with cocaine to harm the health and well-being of the nation.
    The chief justice of Venezuela was also charged with international money laundering.

    Shouldn't the Justice Dept be investigating the US SENATORS who traded STOCK OPTIONS after attending CLOSED BRIEFINGS about the extent of (Covid19 ) PANDEMIC instead of "chasing rabbits " ???
