Very "convenient" timing by the EU...
POS:

It's called politics. Dirty politics perhaps. However given Mme. Le Pen's past financial mis-steps it may very well be true, even if it's timely release is dirty politics.

Cheers and be well.

She has been under investigation for a long time and been in negotiations to pay back the money (like the other criminals have done). Guess she does not have the funds after her Russian bank was sanctioned.

It is true and she will get convicted. How do I know this? Because other fraudsters have been convicted or paid restitution to avoid a case, but for some reason she has pulled this out and out. She could have had it go away long ago, like many of her like minded fascists who got caught stealing money... but nope she has to be special.

There's nothing "timely" about any of it, she's been under investigation for years.

Many French people probably could not care less.

If the lady can do something to stop the flow of ladies & gentlemen who want to enter France to live, that is all many French people care about.

After all, in 2016 enough Americans cared more about The Donald's policies than on the fact that he once hired a lady for romance.

Trump paid his mistresses to keep silent and had them sign NDA papers.

Americans didn't find out until after the election.

Yup, and the fascist EU are the masters of dirty politics.

Investigation started long before the actual charges were first laid out in 2017


The fraud charges started in 2017

And they were revealed during the 2017 election too. And then the EU waited again until the 2022 elections to once again make the new announcement.

You both love the fascist EU, so Im not surprised you'd downplay this.

You just love making shit up.

The revelation in 2017 was against several EU politicians who had committed fraud. That started the investigations and yes they have taken a long time because of immunity and other rules.

Most other EU politicians who committed this type of fraud have paid back what they took....or their party has.

Le Pen had her immunity removed a few months ago due to another situation and that has meant the EU now can formally charge her.

But between 2017 to now, Le Pen, like all the other fraudsters, have had plenty of time to admit what they did and pay back the money and avoid any EU legal issues... Le Pen has not done anything, unlike others.

This is not fascism, or even close to it. She broke the law and has to pay for it. You forget, this is only the EU part... the French part is yet to come. Many of these fraudsters have avoided EU charges by paying back the money, but many have not avoided domestic charges.

Any time a corrupt group of shitheads pulls a stunt like that they are pretty much indicting themselves more than the accused. In this case they have a broad set of accusations that somehow she or her party, or national causes benefited by 150 k over 13 years? AND they announce it right before an election?
🤣
The EU has shit on their nose.

As said before the case has been on going for years and any charges were expected around this time. That it just happens to be during her attempt to become President is just funny, but it ain't like it was all a big secret.

And regardless Macron has far more ammunition against her. Her very close political and financial links to Putin for one. Her Nazi issues is another.

Hate movements usually have someone embezzling them. Racism is also a profitable grift.
Kinda accurate. The guy who formed the now People's Party in Denmark was a genius lawyer that was anti tax ....which the people's party started out as. However he was later thrown in jail for.....tax evasion. He famously sent his tax papers in on toilet paper because at the time there was no stipulation on what paper or size the tax returns should be sent in on. Now days there is of course, mostly because of his actions.

Oh and the current leader of the party got involved in something similar as Le Pen, and the party paid the EU back. But he could not avoid Danish law as he did the crime in Denmark. Lucky for him, the first trial result was thrown out because the Judge posted stuff on Facebook about it... But the chances he will avoid the same fate of prison at his second trial is slim.

LOL I sure hope the EU isnt paying you to spew out excuses for them, because they are not getting their money's worth.

Your silly little explanation is pretty much like what Russian state propagandists do: spin to make it look like the EU is fair, but in reality, theyre not.

1. If Le Pen was under investigation for a long time, why did they publicly accuse her just now? Because the elections are happening, thats why. Its as simple as that.

2. They did the exact same thing in 2017. and now they are repeating it all over again.

The fact is the fascist EU does not want any politician that is against them to come into power, and they will use every underhanded trick up their moronic sleeves to do it. In this regards, the EU is really no different than Russia, for the French and the Germans secretly want Putin to win.
