Secret documents reveal Was Alex Saab, Maduro's ally in Venezuela, an informant for America?  The United States has declassified court documents that showed Alex Saab, a Colombian businessman close to the regime of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, was an informant for the United States Drug Control Agency.  Declassified US judicial documents showed, on Wednesday, that Alex Saab, a Colombian businessman close to the regime of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, was an informant for the US Drug Control Agency (DIA).  According to these documents, the Public Prosecution Office confirms that the 49-year-old man, who is currently imprisoned on charges of completing suspicious deals for the Maduro government, became a "confidential informant for the US Drug Enforcement Administration" for a year in 2018.  During that period, Saab handed over more than $12 million obtained through his illegal activities to the US authorities, with whom he signed an agreement to turn himself in and face a money laundering trial.  Saab and his trading partner, Alvaro Pulido, are accused in the United States of running a network that exploited food aid destined for oil-rich Venezuela, mired in a severe economic crisis.  According to the indictment, the two men transferred $350 million from Venezuela to accounts under their control in the United States and elsewhere.  The first contact between Saab and the US authorities took place in August 2016 in Bogota.  In the Colombian capital, the DEA and the FBI showed him the data they had collected about his deals in Venezuela.  The court documents said that as an informant for the DEA, Saab provided "information about the bribes he paid and the crimes he committed."  Hours after declassifying these documents, Saab denied that he was an informant.  His attorney, David Rifkin, said in a statement that his client "wants to make clear that the sole purpose of those meetings (with the DEA) was to confirm that neither he nor any company associated with him did anything wrong."  He explained that all transactions between Saab and US officials "has taken place with the full knowledge and support of the Bolivarian Republic of Venezuela."  According to the documents, cooperation between the US Drug Enforcement Administration and Saab ended in May 2019 after Saab missed the deadline to surrender to the United States.  Two months later, the US authorities accused him of money laundering.
