A Death Order By Foreign Lawmaker Against Rubio?

On Sunday, the Miami Herald reported that one of Venezuela’s most powerful leaders may have put a hit on Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL), one of the strongest critics of that country’s government. According to intelligence obtained by the U.S. last month, it is believed that Diosdado Cabello, the former military chief and lawmaker from the ruling socialist party who has publicly feuded with Rubio, is behind the order. For the past several weeks, Rubio has been guarded by an increased security detail -- a sign that the threat is being taken seriously. A memo by the Department of Homeland Security was sent out last month to several law enforcement agencies. The memo, obtained by the Miami Herald, revealed an “order to have Senator Rubio assassinated,” though it also warned that “no specific information regarding an assassination plot against Senator Rubio has been garnered thus far.” Read more here.
