Election Interference: EU 'Anti-Fraud Body' Accuses Marine Le Pen of 'Embezzlement'

Just one week after Marine Le Pen staged a spectacular comeback to make it into the presidential runoff election against Emmanuel Macron, the EU decided to accuse her of "embezzling" public funds, citing allegations which date back 18 years ago.

From AFP, "EU anti-fraud body accuses Marine Le Pen of embezzlement":
The EU's anti-fraud body has accused French far-right leader Marine Le Pen and associates of embezzling around 600,000 euros during their time as MEPs, French website Mediapart said Saturday, quoting a new report.

[...] Her lawyer dismissed the accusations, raising suspicions over the "timing" of the report.

[...] The report points the finger at Le Pen and three other former members of the European parliament including her father, Jean-Marie Le Pen, her ex-partner Louis Aliot and former far-right MEP Bruno Gollnisch.

The body accuses the four of having embezzled around 600,000 euros ($650,000), which it recommends they repay.

According to the report, Le Pen personally embezzled around 137,000 euros ($150,000) worth of public money from the Strasbourg parliament when she was an MEP between 2004 and 2017.

"I'm surprised by the timing of such a strong disclosure" and the "instrumentalisation" [see: political instrumentalisation/political manipulation], Le Pen's lawyer, Rodolphe Bosselut, told AFP.

Bosselut said he was "dismayed by the way that OLAF (European Anti-Fraud Office) is acting", insisting that some of the report related to "old facts more than ten years old".

He added that Le Pen "has not been summoned by any French judicial authority" and slammed the failure to send him or Le Pen the final report.
This is how the EU operates now.

Less than 48 hours after Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban was reelected in a landslide earlier this month, the EU announced they're going to trigger a never-before-used mechanism aimed at cutting tens of billions of euros in funding to Hungary for violating so-called "democratic norms" -- essentially putting sanctions on their nation for voting the wrong way.

Le Pen said last week she wants to leave NATO's unified military command, which Paul Craig Roberts said makes her a "candidate" for assassination by the CIA or French intelligence.

Roberts wrote:
"I want France to leave NATO's unified military command. I will never agree that our troops are subordinate to the NATO command or the European command. France should return to the status in the alliance that it had from 1966 to 2009," the French presidential candidate said.

Le Pen said that if she is elected, she intends to offer NATO a strategic rapprochement with Russia after the end of the conflict in Ukraine.

"When hostilities are over, I will propose a strategic rapprochement between NATO and Russia," Le Pen said.

She added that the key principles of her foreign policy will be "independence, equidistance and constancy."

Marine Le Pen offers the remnant of the French Nation French Leadership that France has not had since de Gaulle. France is ruled by Washington. The dumbshit French people have consistently refused to elect a president who would represent France.

I doubt that the French will elect a French leader in the upcoming election. If they do, Marine Le Pen will be assassinated by the CIA or French Intelligence.
The deck is stacked against her.
