Argentina's Fernandez charged with treason, arrest sought

BUENOS AIRES (Reuters) - A federal judge in Argentina indicted former President Cristina Fernandez for treason and asked for her arrest for allegedly covering up Iran’s possible role in the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community center that killed 85 people, a court ruling said.

As Fernandez is a senator, Congress would first have to vote to strip her of parliamentary immunity for an arrest to occur. The judge, Claudio Bonadio, also indicted and ordered house arrest for Fernandez’s Foreign Minister Hector Timerman, the 491-page ruling said.

Fernandez called a news conference in Congress to deny wrongdoing and accuse Bonadio and President Mauricio Macri of degrading the judiciary.

“It is an invented case about facts that did not exist,” she said, dressed in white.

1. Yeah, for sure. Macri through his judge, Claudio Bonadio, finally got her dead to rights, didn't he?

Cristina Fernández de Kirchner during her Presidency from 2007 to 2015 undoubtedly covered up Iran's "possible role in the 1994 bombing of the Jewish community center." You betcha.

Then, she had Hector Timerman assassinated.

So much fascist violence to accomplish in so little time. I'm surprised she didn't flee the country to avoid being imprisoned, aren't you?

It truly takes all kinds, and I wish it didn't. We could do without some kinds.
