Venezuela captures ‘US spy’ allegedly plotting to sabotage oil refineries

Red Lines host Anya Parampil speaks with Caracas-based journalist Diego Sequera, a columnist with Mision Verdad, about recent developments in Venezuela

Parampil and Sequera discuss Venezuela’s recent arrest of a US spy which the government claims was plotting to sabotage oil refineries in the country, as well as upcoming parliamentary elections in December.

They explore the impact the vote could have on US-backed politician Juan Guaidó as well as the fractured state of Venezuela’s political opposition.

The interview closes with a look at a recent report out of Miami which accuses Guaidó officials of engaging in federal crimes, including extortion, in the United States.
