Is this a case of the pot calling the kettle black? Where was this Ex President when his subordinates were robbing the treasury with the scandals they created. Was he paying attention? Was this Ex President’s voice paying attention when former President Medina’s administration was brewing its scandals?

Politics aaaaahhhhh !!!!

The guy milked the country dry what’s he gonna do with all the money he stole ? Why does he want more ?

Does he hate the country ?

Finally someone who is doing something is in power why not just shut up with the millions (in dollars) that you have?

Btw I remain skeptical about this president too the PRD did its thing a long time ago too.
