U.S. intelligence released a bombshell last week: that Barack Obama used his final weeks in the White House to create the Russia collusion scandal, in an effort to kneecap President Trump.
Now? Even Mexico is launching an investigation into Obama-era corruption.
Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador is demanding answers on Obama’s gun-running operation, known as “Fast and Furious.”
“Fast and Furious,” which was overseen by Obama’s Attorney General Eric Holder, began in February 2010.
The goal of the operation was to allow illegal weapons to be sold to Mexican drug cartels, in hopes that the guns could be tracked and the leaders of the cartel arrested.
The operation was a catastrophic failure–and resulted in the deaths of hundreds of Mexicans, as well as US Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, who was killed in December 2010.
The scandal resulted in Holder becoming the first presidential Cabinet member ever to be held in contempt of Congress, after he refused to give critical information about the operation.
But, years later, Mexico apparently isn’t willing to let Obama and his Administration off the hook–and is looking to make sure it never happens again.
“What seems serious to me is that a violation of our sovereignty was carried out, a secret operation, and that Mexicans were killed with these weapons,” Lopez Obrador said in a press conference.
“How could this be? A government that invades in this way, that flagrantly violates sovereignty, international laws,” he added. “We have to shine light on this so that an action of this type will never be carried out again.”
“There is still time for the U.S. to apologize,” he finished.
