Under pressure at home and overseas, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro on Wednesday used one of the world's most prominent podiums to accuse the United States and its allies of trying to assassinate him to end his "socialist revolution" and seize Venezuela's vast oil and mineral wealth.

Maduro is widely unpopular but has clung to power through what the US says is rigged elections and corruption.

Venezuela's problems stem from corruption and egregious mismanagement, which can happen anywhere.

"This strategy ignores the fact that there have been coup attempts within the past year, and they've all failed", Ramsey said. "If everyone is sanctioned then it could end up uniting the government".

As part of the actions announced Tuesday, the Treasury Department also seized a $20 million private jet belonging to an alleged front man for powerful socialist party boss Diosdado Cabello.

Cutz spoke publicly Monday at the Wilson Center think tank in Washington for the first time since leaving government. The six-country referral could broaden the scope of the ongoing preliminary probe to the more serious charges leveled at Venezuela on Wednesday and extend the time frame back to 2014.
