Marco Rubio, the leader of the Anti-Venezuelan circus in the U.S.

Once again, as if it were a world government, the White House passes down sanctions against those who act regardless their laws.

Journalist Patricia Mazzei for the New Herald in Miami notified so this past Wednesday.

According to her article, now Washington decided to punish eight Venezuelan prominent personalities "for their participation in the recently inaugurated Constituent Assembly of Venezuela."

How, for example, they plan to punish what they think is a mortal sin?

Mazzei wrote: Trump’s administration will freeze their assets in the United States, they are banned to travel there and they won't allow North American citizens to do business with them.

Current and former Venezuelan government members would be affected, as well as a person accused by Washington of "promoting repression."

The list includes the following people:

Francisco Ameliach, governor for Carabobo State and leader of the United Socialist Party of Venezuela (PSUV); Tania D'Amelio, member of the Electoral National Council; Adam Chávez, governor for Barinas State and brother of the deceased president Hugo Chávez.

Also, Hermann Escarrá, constitutional lawyer and delegate of the Constituent Assembly; Erika Farías, Minister of Urban Agriculture; Bladimir Lugo Armas, colonel of the Bolivarian National Guard; Carmen Meléndez Rivas, delegate of the Constituent Assembly; and Ramón Darío Vivas Velasco, Delegate of the Constituent Assembly and leader of the PSUV.

Those new punished join another list that includes President Nicolás Maduro, the vice-president Tareck El Aissami and other 20 current and former members of the Venezuelan government.

That was not the end of it, then they published an official statement of their Secretary of Treasure, Steven Mnuchin.

"The scorn of this régime for the will of the Venezuelan people is unacceptable, and the United States will support them in opposing the tyranny until Venezuela is restored to a peaceful and prosperous democracy".

Once again it was heard the voice of whom is consider by some the advisory of Trump’s administration, the republican senator Marco Rubio.

"I support that the president (Trump) has punished these corrupt officials of Maduro’s régime ", he said.

Mazzei clarified that Marco Rubio has exercised different pressures aimed at attaining penalties against Venezuela.

The time has come for the president make his promise good of imposing significant economic sanctions to the illegitimate dictatorship of Maduro."

These were the words of the North American senator who is part of the Commission of Intelligence of his high Chamber.

Acording to journalist Mazzei, Marco Rubio has a message for Maduro:

“The path you are on will not end well for you”. But is worth answering. The path Rubio is will end well if a few years ago he virtually fled from Florida avoiding serious charges for dirty performances?

Few have forgotten, also as an example, his scandal after it was known he had paid several times with a credit card of the Republican Party to pay his personal expenses.

Neither the very difficult situation The Washington Post threw on him when, after a thorough investigation, it was revealed that Rubio lied when talking about his parents past.

What happen then? For electoral reasons for a long period of time he "sold" them as heroic anti-Castro fighters who could flee from Cuba in 1956.

That is, two years prior the triumph of the Revolution, and not for political reasons, just like thousands of Cuban back then, for economic reasons.

This is just a glimpse of what is expected to be written on these matters.

No wonder Washington appeals to monumental violations of all legal behavior to sustain its very fragile arguments.
