Putsch comes to shove: Venezuela
"And welcome to the intelligence on economist radio. I'm your host. Jason Palmer every weekday. We provide a fresh perspective on the events shaping your world. After yesterday's dramatic attempt to oust Venezuela's president. We take a look at coups around the world, what makes them happy. What makes them succeed, and what are the risks for coup-plotters fail? And a surprise raid on North Korea's embassy in Madrid reveals just how difficult and thankless it is to be a dissident against the North Korean regime. But I. In Venezuela yesterday, the opposition leader one Guido made his move to try to overthrow the embattled President Nicolas muddle, he claimed his operation. Liberty would be the final push to depose a man who has retained power only through a sham election. Mr. Guido is supported by millions of Venezuelans or suffering from regime inflicted hunger and hardship. But it's the support of the military. He needs in order to take power. And despite promising early signs not enough of them decided to abandon Mr. Muto. Lobue leniency called Pai tau. In a defiant television address, the president called the attempt of failure lambasting those who handed their souls over to the coup mongering, far, right? I was waking up shortly after six AM by the sound of saucepans being bashed, which is a traditional form of protest in Venezuela. Stephen Gibbs rights for the economist he was among the crowds in the capital Caracas yesterday as events unfolded. And it soon transpired what was going on. And that was the one I do was calling for a military uprising. We went over the us. Lootah bell imprinting gynecology perfume in no fuel inter inter one hundred zero as soon became apparent that. This was by no means a normal day all shops with barricaded opposite. As they usually are when there is a protest, but this was not a typical protest because a Hong wide other was out with soldiers. And they were all standing on this a motorway that overlooks the military basement airbase right in the center of Caracas and those soldiers will wearing blue on bans as a symbol of their defection and the crowds grew and grew. An inside that base. The sort of big question was whether the people inside the soldiers, the conscripts inside would he'd what those outside were saying, which is come and join us rebel against the Madora government. Pretty quick it became apparent that. They weren't going to do that it will far in ice towards the crowns toward us that were just on the other side of the barricade. And then things got even uglier the rebel soldiers. Apparently sort of rattled by something began to fire live rounds into the air. That go to whole lot of people running and it was a precarious situation. And then there was a sort of a standoff that lasted for several hours. One of the more striking things that was was. There was Leopold Lopez. He is Venezuela's most famous political prisoner. He's been in jail or under house arrest since twenty fourteen. So to see him walking the streets. Not balking particularly far was quite extraordinary in in. He managed to release himself by a defection of those people that were guarding him. So it was clear that this wasn't as I say a normal protest. Something unusual was going on that went on for several hours until after the tear gas through gone on bearable. Most of the protesters recapped to the square in out mirror here in eastern Caracas. And there was quite oh and Leopoldo Lopez and several members of the national guard who had defected, and they were being sort of hugged by supporters. They were some of them with. With the family, and this was the image. Of course, the opposition was hoping would be repeated massively across the country. This is what they're trying to do. They're trying to do a sort of fell revolution where the feared security forces. Give up put down their arms and say, you know, we're not going to support Madore or anymore where with this new president and everything's going to change. It didn't happen. It sounds like there was good public supports on the streets anyway for Mr. Guido or the people rallying behind him more widely. The short answer is. Yes, I mean, given that he was a relatively unknown figure last year. And now he is unquestionably the most famous opposition leader in Suada. It is probably were saying that a lot of the support for two is a sort of protest vote against Maduro Midori is not popular. But he given that he is saying that he's leading a popular revolu. Nation that in his last a contested election. The one that you know, Guido and the opposition and much of the international community says was rigged last year in a he's standing for reelection. Or he stood for reelection. In the midst of the deepest recession in the world inflation heading for ten million percent, everyone feeling poor more miserable public services here. Collapsing. So, you know, the idea that he could really come on Syria support seems implausible and what about the military whose allegiance has always been the Lynch pin here. What what support does Mr. Guido have from them? I mean, it might be fair to say not as much support as he hopes since he came on the scene in early January. He has repeatedly said look, I can only do this. If the military come with me, I think there's no question in the lower ranks of the army and the forces people know happy head because they're suffering. Exactly the same way the most. Venezuelan's suffering. The problem is that the high ranking generals and the of Venezuela that notoriously has a top heavy army with with thousands of generals a lot of them on a benefiting from the chaos here from the corruption which Unity's that may afford them a new also the whole forces. This is one of the things that were job is Maderas assisted. Did he politicized that institution? Effectively everyone sort of fouls their allegiance to the socialist, revolution and not just Venezuela. So it is a relatively world controlled institution. As as one guy to is is finding out and what will happen to Mr White. Oh, if this fails altogether. If this fails, which is perfectly probable identing it's necessarily the end of quavo. You know, he will probably continue an hope that the drip-by-drip discontent in the military against Maduro. We'll alternate. Really bear fruit. And I think the other person to watch is there Puerto Lopez. He's now out of house arrest. He's going to be living. It seems in the Spanish embassy. That means he's conceive people. He can meet people he can negotiate and that will be an instinct additional little twist to this long-running saga.
"leopoldo" Discussed on WAFS Biz 1190
"Yet on seat major regime in Venezuela. Licks to have failed self-proclaimed present one Guido issued an early morning cool, Fulton the military to join a popular uprising, but only a handful of soldiers heated his pay. Let's bring in merging markets. Edita? Justin cowards. So it looks like Mr. Guido is held up in a couple of embassies is this is dumb. Is this coup attempt done finished with a certainly very weakened. Isn't it? Leopoldo Lopez who was guidos mentor who appeared surprisingly yesterday. When all this kicked off is now back in what he's he's sought sanctuary in either the Chilean or the Spanish and the last we heard, but what do I think is still at large, and he's calling for people to come out again on the streets in protest, but it would appear that the subtext here. The a lot of the impetus has drained away from this after yesterday's excitement. It's Labor Day. We shall see. We saw protests yesterday. Fifty out of fifty two of the countries states reported protests, but it hasn't gone anywhere. So we're kind of sticking to the script a little bit as you were just a few weeks ago. How are investors looking through this turmoil? I mean in the past they've they've not really reacted much across some of these assets. And venezuela. What what have you been seeing less twenty four to forty eight? Yeah. Well, the phone market really told the story in the bond market didn't move. So clearly, the investment community was waiting to see how this thing was going to turn out. I think the next stage is to see again where this will lead. If it doesn't lead anywhere, then don't expect much action in in the bone in the bone markets. There isn't much trading going on. It's just people hanging out really for some kind of renegotiation some kind of right down that really trading.

"And it sounds like it's going to be a long night because the situation is still very fluid. I'm just looking at the way that Leopoldo Lopez reappeared on the scene dramatically, I understand there was quite a senior Madero figure involved in that who has now turned against the president.

So could we see another day of mass protests across Venezuela today Wednesday with his assessment of the country's future is the BBC's James Reed who has reported many times from south. Erica, there's a real sense. Now, this long running crisis is approaching climax and and things really on a knife edge Guido he claims he's the president. He's shown he can mobilize huge crowds of supporters. He's won the support of dozens of countries not just the United States, but regional powers like Colombia, and Brazil, but real power in the end rests in the hands of the armed forces. And it's for the loyalty of the men and women in uniform, the nNcholas Maduro and Guido now competing Mr. Guido showed that he could win over dozens of members of the armed forces during his protest yesterday. But Mr. Madeira has put on a show of loyalty with his military chiefs. So really that is the question now which way will the armed forces term interesting to say the Americans saying that president Madeira had been prepared to leave. Excellent Kibo, but was persuaded not to by the Russians has no that's true or not. But suddenly outside forces are also in play. Well, that's right. Yeah. The United States is strongly. Backing Mr. glide they keep saying that military action is an option. The other Latin American countries are very much against this Colombia, Brazil. They don't want to see any kind of armed conflict. But the tension is there on the streets, and if different factions within in the armed forces are opposed to each other. Well in the end, that's always a danger. And of course, the background to this very political crisis is a deep economic and humanitarian crisis in Venezuela. Millions of people have left the country. There were shortages of food shortages of medicine. The economy is in collapse. So people in Venezuela very much waiting and hoping for some kind of resolution, and Mr. Guido hoping that they will come onto the streets on mayday to show displeasure with the government. Yes, he's not backing down. And the stakes for him, particularly high president Madeira has said now that he's determined to bring criminal cases against the people who've in his view. Press for an illegitimate military coup. Kwanggaeto is at large in Venezuela. We don't know where is does nNcholas Maduro nowhere. Here's our the police and the armed forces after him.

"Morning edition from NPR news. I'm Rachel Martin in Washington DC, and I'm David Greene in Culver City, California. President Trump is trying to block congressional investigators from gaining access to his Bank records Trump along with his grown children and his businesses as a lawsuit asking a federal judge in New York to prevent too big banks from responding to congressional subpoenas this suit complains that those subpoenas are overly broad and serve. No legitimate. Legislative purpose. Let's talk about them with NPR's, Scott Horsely. Hi, Scott, good morning to. So who are the banks involved here, Deutsche, Bank and capital? One Bank was President Trump's primary Bank after a number of casino. Bankruptcies, Trump wasn't welcome. And a lot of banks, but Deutsche Bank continued to land large sums of money to Donald Trump. The Bank held mortgages of more than fifty million dollars on a number of prominent Trump properties including Miami. Golfers Ord Trump Tower, Chicago and the Trump hotel here in Washington Deutsche Bank has also a checkered history of laundering money for wealthy. Russians. In fact, of paid a fine of six hundred thirty million dollars for that a couple years ago. So Adam Schiff, the congressman at the head of the house intelligence committee says part of what lawmakers are looking at here is whether Deutsche Bank acted as a conduit for any foreign financial influence on the president deutchebanks also been subpoenaed by New York state authorities, and you might remember David Michael Cohen testified before the house oversight committee. Trump's have made false financial statements to your Bank when he was trying to raise money to buy the NFL team Buffalo Bills. The Bank said in a statement it's committed to providing appropriate information to all authorized investigations, and we'll abide by any court order, but the president's argument here is that these things have no reason to give any of his personal banking information to congress and respond to pain as well. I mean, what what what is his legal argument here? He's saying that Congress's investigative power is limited to its legislative function. And he says there's no legislation that would be served by access to these records. He's also complaining that subpoenas violate privacy laws that require notice when Bank records like this are demanded the lawsuit really seeks to paint this congressional subpoena as politically motivated fishing expedition, if congress were rummaging around in a dumpster out back of Trump Tower at one point the suit says lawmakers are looking for every credit card swipe and goes on to argue the dates and times when these. Individuals purchase books, groceries and other personal items is not the business of the house of representatives or anyone else that kind of trivializes what lawmakers are after here. I dare say they're not really looking at the president's debit card transactions. They're not just rummaging through the trash dumpster for whatever they can find. This isn't surprising at all rights. This is a president who's who's done everything he possibly can to keep his financial affairs out of the public eye. That's right. Remember, Donald Trump is the first president in four decades did not release his tax returns during the campaign, and he continues to hide behind the claim that he can't release those returns because they're under audit. Another congressional committee has demanded that the treasury department turn over the president's tax returns. As the law says the treasury department must so far the administration has dragged its feet on that request. David Donald Trump has built his image. He's built his political brand around this picture that was painted by reality television of successful business. Hi cone serving while. There have been plenty of investigative journalists who've poked holes in that picture, Trump has always fought back, very hard. And he's trying here to limit any information reaching the public that might stain that glossy public persona NPR, Scott Horsely force this morning, Scott. Thanks as always good with you. And we just want to mention here that Capital One is one of NPR sponsors. We're closely following events in Venezuela where the political crisis. There has suddenly escalated the opposition leader one Guido says he is in the final phase of a plan to oust the President, Nicolas Maduro. Medeiros officials say they are successfully putting down a coup attempt. And let's see what we can learn from NPR's Philip Reeves who has been following this, Phil. Hi, this sounds incredibly confusing, and we're getting different information from from the opposition the government here. So what exactly do we know? Well, it is confusing, but we know one thing and that is this erupted when a video short video appeared today in which is seen at an Ed base with a small group of soldiers and some Ahmed fickle 's also in that video is one of the key most influential figures in the Venezuelan opposition Leopoldo Lopez who until now has been under house arrest and. And. Dole is essentially saying this is the moment. In fact, he actually says in the video the moment is now and is calling on people to come out. And finally, so you say Leopoldo Lopez is very significant in the opposition about who. He is. Exactly. Yeah. He's the founder of Guido's political party popular will in two thousand fourteen he was arrested. He was laid sentence to nitty fourteen years on the variety of charges including alleged conspiracy. And in two thousand seventeen went into house arrest the God of the Venezuelan intelligence services. But the key thing about him is he is really one of the most prominent opposition figures in the country and has been years. So if he's out now and released then that's very significant. We don't know exactly how this has happened his father who's in. Spain is reportedly saying that the military released him, which if true is signifty. Current a consensus in Venezuela that if the military high command stop supporting the dodo if Bandon Medusa than dodo willful, so this this sounds like a very important point to highlight. Here if Lopez was released by someone in the government or someone in the military that might suggest that Madero is is losing control potentially. If the military which would be a sign of maybe a significant moment. Yes. That his possibility. We don't know exactly the dimension of this. But what we do know is that it is extremely unstable at the moment. Madonna's ministers have responded to this one of them is describing it as a small coup attempt and then pretty much dismissing it another one. The defense minister saying that everything in Venezuela's military bases across the country has come of course, possible independently to verify any of that and another who's a key figure in the ruling socialist party is calling on Dennis Wayland to go to the presidential. Palace and cacus to defend doodo against the opposition uprising that may not be underway. So the kontos are revolving of what is potentially a very violent situation. And Phil doesn't doesn't quite the opposition leader have support from good number of countries around the world. He has support by fifty four nations. Prominent among them is the US that has been deeply involved in the campaign that has been going on for several months now to oust Medusa these countries recognize Guido is the legitimate leader of the country of one to take over as transitional president ahead of elections. But we are far from that point this is change. But it's very hard to say exactly where it's going. Okay. Well, we'll certainly be following where it goes from here. Phil freeze reporting for us on that situation. Venezuela, Phil, thank you. This is NPR news seven forty two. And with another look at our commute.
