True. But Pompeo is also a meathead, let's not forget. His claim that
Maduro was ready to flee Venezuela, and that he only stayed because Putin
told him to, suggests he was tripping. Flee from what? Meanwhile Trump
reported that Russia wasn't seeking to get involved in Venezuela. In this
case, Trump is correct. What does Russia want there (except a bit of a
bargainung chip I suppose).
