It’s May 2nd. Today, we Skimm’d This:
Two people are saying they’re the president of Venezuela. Still. The US and over 50 countries are backing one of them, but a “peaceful transition of power” still hasn’t happened. We’ll tell you what’s going down in Venezuela and why the US is keeping its options on the table.
Today, Julian Assange said ‘no thanks’ to being extradited to the US. We’ll break down the process -- and what this means for the Wikileaks founder.
theSkimm: Venezuela still doesn’t know who’s in charge. We’ll talk about why the US was predicting a peaceful transition of power - and why now they’re keeping all the cards on the table. Then: the US wants Wikileaks founder Julian Assange to cross the pond. Today he said: rather not. We’ll explain how the extradition process works. And finally: it’s Holocaust Remembrance Day. In Hebrew, that’s Yom HaShoah. A Holocaust survivor -- and the relative of a Skimm HQ’r -- shares his story.
