Mexico urges U.S. to probe of 'all' officials with ties to ex-minister

Mexico's president on Monday urged Washington to investigate "all" officials, including members of elite U.S. law enforcement agencies, with ties to a former Mexican security minister accused of taking bribes from a top drug gang.

The arrest of ex-Security Minister Genaro Garcia Luna in Dallas late last year sent shockwaves across Mexico, where he had spearheaded a militarized assault on powerful drug gangs beginning under former President Felipe Calderon in 2006.

Garcia Luna was subsequently indicted on charges of accepting millions of dollars in bribes from the Sinaloa Cartel, the gang once led by drug lord Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman.

Speaking at his regular morning news conference, President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador called for a wide-ranging inquiry, suggesting that such an investigation could uncover wrongdoing by more than just one official.

"The U.S. government, now that it has begun an investigation, should delve deeper and also investigate officials" with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA), the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), Lopez Obrador said.

The investigation should cover "all those who intervened during this period, because without a doubt, there was cooperation," the president added.

Lopez Obrador suggested that an inquiry could uncover "criminal association" among officials from both governments.

As President Trump likes to say, he’s doing more to protect the American border than the Democrats.

You beat me that.
We have been trying for years to get even a single member of The FBI Crime Family convicted for organizing the coup against President Trump with exactly zero results.

There is a ex FBI FReeper who went dark when I asked him about reporting known wrong doings on the 7th floor.

It is all about the pension.

Kind of like President Trump asking the Ukraine for any info on crimes committed by US citizens. But without the shampeachment drama.

Or, was he framed because he did fight the cartels?

Mexico is almost as corrupt as the FBI and the US Justice Department.
