Opposition leader Guaydo, who declared president last week as a challenge to current President Nicholas Maduro, urged his adherents to come out on the streets after the court chief announced restrictions on Twitter late Tuesday.
the crisis that spanned the country deepened, as Guaido called on protesters to demand strong Venezuelan militants to oppose the opposition. Army pursuers in Venezuela also turned to the United States to supply weapons and move the opposition forward.
Earlier Tuesday, the country's chief prosecutor announced that Guaydo, the leader of the democratically elected Venezuelan National Assembly, is under investigation, despite the fact that members of parliament are usually immune from prosecution.
Guaydo still does not have to officially respond to the Chief Prosecutor's Investigation or the Supreme Court's actions.
John Bolton, a US National Security Advisor, has warned Venezuelan authorities to take further action against Guaido, which Washington recognizes as a legitimate president of the country. Bolton said there would be "serious consequences" if Guaido had any harm.
Maduro previously said he was ready to talk to the opposition – but rejected the new presidential election by 2025, according to excerpts from an interview published on Wednesday by Russian state news agency RIA-Novosti.
Maduro was re-elected to six last year, and although he claims the elections are fair, international observers question their legitimacy.
Severe Economic Conflicts put pressure on Maduro
Guaydo Declared the President After the deadly protests against Maduro, who chaired one of the worst economic crashes in modern memory, despite the fact that Venezuela has the largest oil reserves in the world. Many of the demonstrators who spoke with CNN said they were hungry.
Maduro accused Guyado and US President Donald Trump of planning a coup to bring him down.
In a series of reports released on Wednesday, Maduro turned directly to US citizens asking them to stop the Trump administration from turning Venezuela into "Vietnam in Latin America." He also accused Washington of targeting Venezuela in an attempt to steal the oil wealth of the country.
"We are a people of peace, with a solid democracy," said Maduro. "I want to have respectful relations with all the US … I want peace and respect."
Maduro blames the United States for its sharp food shortage, rising unemployment and massive hyperinflation that has destroyed the country's savings. But economists point to years of poor economic governance as the more likely cause. Maduro and his predecessor, Hugo Chavez, funded huge and ultimately unsustainable social assistance programs and price control policies in an attempt to direct the country to socialism, block political opponents, and destroy the opposition in this process.
The Guaydo Administration has called on the international community to support the end of Maduro's dictatorship, the establishment of a transitional government and the holding of democratic elections as soon as possible.
The White House is one of Guaido's strongest supporters since the crisis, along with several democracies in Europe and Latin America.
China, the most important lender of Venezuela, and Russia and Turkey, are among those who stand on Monday The White House has greatly accelerated its attempts to press Maduro after pursuing Caracas' most valuable asset – its oil wealth, with sanctions against the Venezuelan state oil company Petroleos de Venezuela, SA
the administration has not ruled out any options to deal with the crisis, including warfare – speculation that fired in part after Bolton was observed on Monday, carrying a yellow legal panel with inscriptions. 000 soldiers in Colombia. "
It is not clear whether it was slipping or Machiavelli fishing to intimidate the Maduro regime. In any case, Colombia's foreign minister said in a statement Monday that he did not know about thinking behind Bolton's remarks.
