“These officials spend their time meeting with the Venezuelan extreme right wing, financing them and encouraging them to take actions to sabotage the electrical system, to sabotage the Venezuelan economy.”

The U.S. embassy responded to Maduro's claim with a statement saying: “We completely reject the Venezuelan government’s allegations of U.S. government involvement in any type of conspiracy to destabilize the Venezuelan government.”

Maduro gave the U.S. officials 48 hours to leave Venezuela.
