The news is out: [MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s Supreme Court ruled Thursday the president can go ahead with a proposed referendum on prosecuting ex-presidents.
Opponents had claimed it violated the precept that the decision to prosecute should be made by prosecutors, not voters or politicians.
The court ruled in a 6-5 vote that the measure was constitutional, but said the wording of the question to appear on ballots might be modified.
As submitted by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, the referendum question states: “Do you agree or not that the relevant authorities should, in accordance with the applicable laws and procedures, investigate and if appropriate punish, the presumed crimes committed by former presidents” and then goes on to name five of Mexico’s six living ex-presidents.]
If he is not chosen for a second term by the owners of this country, Trump will go to jail.
