we are getting them into some of the cities and some of the areas that need them the most of, and it's not an easy job it's very difficult, actually. liz: hundreds of soldiers defected away from nicolas maduro in recent days. the associated press reporting the key to them leaving was maduro not allowing in humanitarian aid. nicolas maduro is threatening to throw into prison interim president juan guaido. juan guaido is meeting with the leader of brazil. reuters reporting that maduro is so desperate for cash to keep his grip on tour than he arranged to move out of the country 8 tons of central bank gold to sell it overseas.
6:47 pm
down, your take on everything that's happening? >> venezuela has a lot of gold. they mine the gold in the jungles along the border with brazil. it's find streams. and he's using this because he's not getting any more dollars. the u.s. was his most important cash customer for oil. the oil sent to china is bartered. liz: it many barters, it's loans. maduro has taken out a lot of loans. they use oil as collateral for this. how do you get maduro out? juan guaido talking to brazil on how to get maduro out. how do you do it? >> maduro is hunkering down.
6:48 pm
over a long period of time of, the financial crisis will only become more acute. the suffering of the venezuelan people will become more acute. but it's not clear that there is a crack in the allegiance to maduro. jorge ramos felt unsafe and threatened when he tried to show nicolas maduro images of venezuelans eating out of garbage trucks. nicolas maduro detained him. he wrote an op-ed about that. the democrats are clearly divide on their messaging about nicolas maduro. jorge ramos of univision says he's a dictator. all of his actions indicate he's
6:49 pm
a dictator. why is it hard for democrats to call him a dictator? he's clearly a dictator and he's also collusional. i don't know why it's difficult for some people to see that. clearly in the last elections where maduro was elected, he disqualified all the opposition candidates. obviously he was going with him. so this is not a legitimate government. but it's a government that always de facto government that continues to rule by force of arms. and that's the problem. the dilemma for the opposition which has been peaceful is they are not armed. to go to an arms struggle implies a terrible cost for venezuela, a terrible cost for the country. obviously they are reluctant to do that. liz: venezuelans continue to ask, where are the blue helmets?
6:50 pm
are we going to get all of snvment security council vote on this? >> we may get a vote, but i doubt they will authorize such an intervention, and it looks like u.s. is not contemplating such an intervention either. liz: one lie michael cone is accused of making during this 7-hour testimony yesterday could under cut his entire testimony. we have stories about that. and why alexandria ocasio-cortez and several of her colleagues cut out on the hearing with the fed chairman to grill michael cohen. that's coming up. after planning for retirement. oh... retirement.

6:55 pm
venezuela on brink of civil war, two nuclear powers, india and pack ppakistan on the brink of r war, that is a fear. and president meeting with president of north korea. socialist alexandria ocasio-cortez and several democrat colleagues face questions over why they dissed and bailed out on a hearing with federal reserve chair so they could instead go head-to-head with michael cohen. kristen can here, what is your take? >> i am not surprised that alexandria ocasio-cortez and other democrats ditched the powell hearing for the cohen hearing, they knew that cohen hearing would get insane media coverage, she and others' donald trump to look back.
6:56 pm
for many democrats yesterday was just about the media spotlight, i thought it was funny, meanwhile during powell's testimony he destroyed this progressive idea that you can just print unlimited money for the green deal programs. his comments underlying this idea, a oc, although may have good intentions is kind of naive with fiscal policy. liz: is that it, democrats don't want to hear the fact, sometimes republicans. they didn't want to hear the fact to the point they didn't go to the meeting, all of a sudden, monemichael cohen has a conscie? he claims, that he cares about stability, he threatens journallives, he said to one, tread -- f'i thin'ing lightly.
6:57 pm
>> michael cohen, they say, did not testify truthfully when he was asked did you want to work in the white house for trump, he comment saying no, your take. >> well, i would not be surprised if cohen lied, he probably can't be trusted. but even if everything he said yesterday was truthful, his testimony yielded very little information with regards to any misconduct by trump or 2016 campaign. in fact a lot of the testimony hurt case against trump, cohen said there was no evidence that trump campaign colluded with russia, and trump never directly told him to lie to congress. i will say that the case against trump with potential campaign finance violation, might have got' a little stronger yesterday. but still, it is a shaky case, a lot of questions still need to
6:58 pm
be answered. for people buying into that narrative that trump is a coconspirateo with putin, they were probably disappointed yesterday. liz: here is the thing about cortez, she never asked michael cohen where is your documentary evidence, the checks, the recording, bank records, phone records. you know instead she doesn't to go after trump tax returns, we know that. they want to put trump in a prime ministeimpeachment so he t re-elected in 2020. this is what -- >> all about publicity and face time, getting your message out, which he sat there reading from a washingto "washington post" ny about trump and cohen, asked if he agreed, he said yes, that was her contribution. liz: dan said she used a template of a "washington post"
6:59 pm
story. >> i was disappointed yesterday, the questions that at some point removed from stormy dap yells d collusion to personal deals with trump and his dealings. aocasking about his, holdings, they had nothing to do with government oversight, yesterday it was a committee that has transformed to a democratic operative corporation it was sickening. liz: the alleged activities predating his elect. >> yes. liz: predated his winning the election. >> that is right. a lot of people are aware of that, i don't think that yesterday moved needle much, people who hate trump still hate him, and people who love trump
7:00 pm
