Secret Service logs 'disappeared' because they showed collusion with right-wing mob, Blumenthal tells RT
rt.com | 2019-12-09

The month-old warrant for his arrest listed the journalist as "armed and dangerous," and police carrying out the warrant reportedly threatened to kick down his door.The government's case was based solely on an unsubstantiated claim made by a right-wing Venezuelan opposition activist, Naylet Pacheco, who alleged that Blumen…
