While I was no fan of President Trump’s bluster about possible military options in Venezuela, there are instances that would absolutely warrant immediate, decisive consequences.

One of those would be a planned assassination of a U.S. senator.

According to a new report in the Miami Herald, a powerful leader of Venezuela’s Socialist Party may be planning a hit on Florida Senator Marco Rubio, according to intelligence gathered last month.

Senator Rubio has been a leading voice speaking out against the horrors of the Maduro regime in Venezuela.

“Though federal authorities couldn’t be sure at the time if the uncorroborated threat was real, they took it seriously enough that Rubio has been guarded by a security detail for several weeks in both Washington and Miami.”
