  • MSJ leader David Abdulah

He also pointed the finger at Colombia and critics in the US, adding perpetrators will face "maximum punishment".

In a speech on Tuesday, Maduro said Julio Borges, a prominent opposition leader living in exile in neighboring Colombia, was a co-conspirator in the plot, but he did not elaborate on what role the politician had played. It said the military shot down its two explosives-laden drones targeting Maduro.

"Opposition leaders decried his accusations, warning Maduro could use the incident to further suppress his critics during an economic and humanitarian crisis". On August 4, the Venezuelan government said Maduro escaped unharmed after drones armed with explosives detonated close to a military event where he was addressing the soldiers in the capital city of Caracas. Images on live television showed Maduro and his wife looking up at the sky at one blast and then hundreds of soldiers scrambling.

Another opposition lawmaker, Juan Requesens, was also singled out by Maduro for having been involved in the failed attempt.

But Diosdado Cabello, the powerful socialist party leader and president of the National Constitutional Assembly, said in a tweet onTuesday that he plans to introduce legislation stripping lawmakers of this protection. "I trust in the good faith of Donald Trump".
