U.S. sanctions against the Dictator Nicolas Maduro’s regime are working, and a military solution is still on the table, but does President Trump even have to go that far considering that he appears to have the ultimate weapon against Maduro?

Trump’s secret weapon: Senator Marco “Narco” Rubio

Rubio, who is so deep in Maduro’s head, is persona non-grata in Venezuela, has been the biggest thorn in the dictator’s side over the past several years.

The regime has even gone far as to promote an instructional video on how to block Rubio from Twitter, not to mention blame him for the recent electrical outages that have plagued that country.

Now Venezuela’s Socialist Party leader and “Drug Czar,” Diosdado Cebello, has challenged Rubio to take a lie detector test with him.

Apparently, Cebello believes Rubio has been doing drugs, hence the cute “Narco” Marco nickname that his government has labelled Rubio with.

Cebello wants to ask Rubio (5) questions, and in turn, would allow Rubio to ask him (5) questions.

Here are Cebello’s questions:

  1. Have you ever used drugs?
  2. Have you ever used drugs in the past six months?
  3. Do you have drug trafficking friends?
  4. Have you charged commissions to third parties to exercise their functions as a politician?

Cebello said the fifth question would be a surprise he would keep safe until the time of the test.

Rubio accepted Cebello’s challenge, saying that the test would have to be conducted “at a DEA office,” offering Cebello the choice of picking which office, and to pay for his airfare because “it will be a one way trip for him.”

Cebellos, who is being investigated by the U.S. Department of Justice for drug trafficking, is a central figure in Venezuela’s ongoing drug trafficking business, and a leader of the “Cartel of the Suns”

His former chief of security, Leasmy Salazar, testified that Cebello controls the drug trade in and out of Venezuela.

“Look, this guy is up to his neck in all sorts of illegal activity in Venezuela and we are building a case against him. But he knows how to protect himself and keep a distance from the dirty work.” Confidential US Justice Dept. Source

Without question, Rubio poses a  "Clear and Present Danger" (channeling the Harrison Ford drug cartel movie) to the Maduro's government.
