"Our actions against this corrupt currency exchange network expose yet another deplorable practice that Venezuela regime insiders have used to benefit themselves at the expense of the Venezuelan people," Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said in a statement.
First of all, it's not a "regime" in the sense being used there. Mnuchin has been instructed to not say "government." Secondly, there has been zero proof provided that the government has done anything wrong. Thirdly, if the US government gave the tiniest damn about the Venezuelan People, it would be for economic democracy and against the fascists seeking to takeover again. It would also not be applying sanctions. They only increase misery.
The only thing going on is that the US plutocracy wants to control everything for the plutocracy's benefit and the People be damned. Mnuchin is a lackey.
