A retired Venezuelan army general claims that US authorities at the highest ranks of the CIA and other federal departments were conscious of his initiatives to depose Nicolás Maduro, a role he claims should dispel criminal allegations that he collaborated with the socialist leader to flood the United States with cocaine. Attorneys for Cliver Alcalá submitted a court brief late Friday seeking to have narco-terrorist accusations filed nearly two years ago by federal prosecutors in Manhattan dismissed. Alcalá has been a vocal opponent of Maduro nearly since he assumed power in 2013 after Hugo Chávez’s death. While the lawyers did not say how much the US government knew about Alcalá’s coup plotting, they did say that his activities “were conveyed at the highest levels of a number of US government institutions.”
