Did La Barbie Finance AMLO?
I do a video explainer on the explosive accusations against the Mexican president
I had a report prepared for readers but after a bombshell breaking story last night by three media outlets I felt I had to to update readers and comment on this issue first. The story, which was reported by ProPublica, DW, and Insight Crime, alleges that the DEA launched an investigation into narco funding of Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s 2006 election campaign.
AMLO has said the accusations are defamatory and there are forces working against him. The issue sharply divides supporters of the president and his detractors but I try to take a line down the middle here and analyze the facts. You can listen to my commentary on audio or watch on video with the links below. (Back with my regular report tomorrow).
