Citgo gets grand jury subpoena for Venezuelan corruption probe by DOJ Southern District of Texas.

Not a location where the Swamp would prefer to go on trial!
Citgo claims it has flipped, replaced it's board & to be actively cooperating & helping the DOJ in it's efforts to find corruption within the corporation!
Which means they knew how busted they were & are trying to throw the guilty under the bus to survive!
There has already been 17 guilty pleas in the Citgo case, so they had little choice! In addition to the new board, they brought in an outside legal firm to investigate the corruption & they have 20 separate internal investigations running to then pass off to the FBI/DOJ.
Should we trust the new board? Well would you believe that Trump recognizing the opposition government in Venezuela allowed them to fire Maduro/Chavez's board & replace them with one that wants to get Venezuela's looted cash back to the country!
This has allowed the DOJ to weaponize Citgo's American HQ in Houston against the socialist regime in Venezuela & their backers in Russia & China!
One of Citgo's former VP's also has a whistleblower lawsuit pending that can use civil court discovery rules to find evidence that will strengthen the DOJ case!
The Venezuelan Kleptocrats are probably very upset that buying condos from a Trump run FBI honey trap served as a means of opening some of these investigations!
My followers won't be surprised that this case & others being run by SD Texas include appearances by Glencore, the company built by friend of Bill Clinton & the Russian oligarchs: Marc Rich.
Nor will the be surprised that those prosecutors are not just looking at Venezuela but Nigeria, Brazil, & many other countries with corrupt oil & energy deals!

But who was serving as the PR front for Venezuelan corruption?
Fusion GPS!
Yep the same people the Democrats went to for their #DirtyDossier on Trump!
Authorities in Switzerland are investigating the money laundering too, much of it tied to a former Venezuelan official who plead guilty in Dec. 2017 in Miami for accepting $1B in bribes for his part in the #moneylaundering A deal sealed until November 2018
