Venezuela could become a risk to US: CIA director


CIA director Mike Pompeo said on Sunday that Venezuela could become a “risk” to the US if chaos continues to roil the South American country.​ ​

“The Cubans are there; the Russians are there, the Iranians, Hezbollah are there​,” he said on “Fox News Sunday.” “​This is something that has a risk of getting to a very​,​ very bad place, so America needs to take this very seriously.”​ ​

He said President Trump was just trying to give the ​country’s ​people hope when he floated the idea ​on Friday that the US would take military action ​after condemning Venezuelan leader Nicholas Maduro for human rights abuses and calling for him to hold “free and fair elections.”
