This is the same Elliott Abrams who, as Reagan's assistant Secretary of State, helped the Salvadoran Army cover up murdering civilians; solicited millions for the Contras from the Sultan of Brunei; and was then convicted of withholding information from Congress about Iran–Contra.

Later, as George W Bush’s Senior Director for Democracy, Human Rights, and International Operations at the National Security Council, Abrams allegedly gave advance approval to the 2002 coup against Chavez. So you know he really cares about democracy!

Trump's style of "saying the quiet part loud" seems to be spreading Here's Marco Rubio not even bothering to feign concern about the human rights and self-determination of the people of Venezuela and nakedly linking recognition of Guaido to oil revenues.
