We must assume that Nicolás Maduro is kicking out CNN, CNN en Español and other foreign journalists as a precursor to even more violent and deadly tactics against innocent Venezuelans," he said. "This press assault is a worrying sign that Maduro intends to dig in and step up the violence with the false belief that the world will never find out because hes kicking out journalists."
