5/3/19 Kevin Zeese on the Attempted US Coup in Venezuela

Scott talks to Kevin Zeese, who is still occupying the Venezuelan embassy in Washington D.C. as part of a group protesting the Trump administration’s attempt to oust President Maduro, of which the first step is to hand embassies over to supporters of Juan Guiadó. Zeese reminds us that Maduro’s election was verified free and fair by more than 150 election observers, and that even if it weren’t, it’s not the place of the united states to decide who should rightfully rule which foreign countries.

Kevin Zeese is a lawyer, activist, and journalist who has written for independent media outlets such as Truthout, AlterNet, Truthdig and Counterpunch, as well as the The Wall Street Journal and The Washington Post. He is the host of Clearing the Fog and the author of multiple books on drug policy. Find him on Twitter @KBZeese.
