El Pais is reporting that the coup president, Guaido, is being investigated for taking money from foreign sources, which is illegal under the Venezuelan Constitution.  Guaido has called for protests to demand the so-called humanitarian aid.

“Help,” which consists of a corridor for the passage of food and medicine – but eventually weapons – can be a pretext for a military attack on Venezuela and on Monday the 11th was joined by the Brazilian government. The team of President Jair Bolsonaro recognized the representative of the self-proclaimed interim government of Venezuela, María Teresa Belandria as the official ambassador for the country.
