Washington, D.C. – U.S. Senator Marco Rubio (R-FL) issued the following statement today after the Trump Administration announced that it will be further sanctioning the Nicolas Maduro regime in Venezuela to counter its cryptocurrency efforts:

“This move against corrupt officials in the Maduro regime targets their ability to use cryptocurrencies to circumvent U.S. and international sanctions. I commend the President and his administration for continuing to take action against efforts by the illegitimate Maduro regime to exploit illicit financial lifelines, and encourage additional sanctions in the weeks to come.”
