Sen. Marco Rubio, R-Fla., came to the defense of the Trump administration and slammed a news report claiming the White House is moving away from meddling in Venezuela amid a constitutional crisis in the South American nation.

Rubio reacted to The Washington Post report that claimed President Donald Trump is growing impatient but also is less interested than before in intervening in Venezuela by way of trying to replace President Nicolás Maduro.

Rubio blamed insiders within the administration for trying to paint a poor picture of Trump's Venezuela policy and pledged to "out" whoever leaks damaging claims in the future.

Rubio wrote in one tweet:

"This article good example of what bureaucratic looks like. Certain officials who dislike Bolton & NSC team use position to leak things designed to damage them … Some of the things claimed here are wildly exaggerated & others are completely fabricated."

In a follow-up tweet, Rubio wrote:

"The truth? @potus basically ran MLB out of his office telling them nothing to discuss until Cuba leaves #Venezuela POTUS has raised Venezuela with me several times this month alone … Next time these fake leaks happen I will out the 'officials' behind them publicly & by name."

The U.S. and several other nations recognize opposition leader Juan Guaidó as the legitimate leader of Venezuela, while Russia, Cuba, and others see Maduro's socialist regime as still being in control.
