According to news accounts, Citgo, the Venezuelan oil company donated

It this story is true and if the bribe had led to loosening of sanctions 
against Venezuela, we might have to accept that it was a good use of 
Venezuelan money.

donated by a well-connected figure [Habboush] and the subsequent access 
to the Trump government for talking about dropping sanctions on Vzla:
