Schiff Statement on Venezuela

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Today, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) released a statement on Venezuela:

“I am following the developments in Venezuela with great concern, as the standoff appears to be reaching a potentially critical point. Nicolás Maduro‘s autocratic rule has been a humanitarian disaster for the people of Venezuela, and I stand with the opposition in calling for free and fair elections and the restoration of democracy. Maduro must refrain from escalating the situation through violence which will only further the suffering of the Venezuelan people.”
