ReutersBy Patricia Zengerle and Matt Spetalnick WASHINGTON (Reuters) - The Trump administration imposed sanctions on the chief judge and seven other members of Venezuela’s Supreme Court on Thursday as punishment for annulling the opposition-led Congress earlier this year, U.S. officials said. The new sanctions package was aimed at stepping up pressure on the leftist government of Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro and his loyalists amid growing concern over a crackdown on street protests and his efforts to consolidate his rule over the South American oil-producing country. The move provoked condemnation from Venezuelan Foreign Minister Delcy Rodriguez.
