While the Minister of Justice had severely hit the RN deputies on Tuesday in the National Assembly, following a question from a nationalist elected official on the murder of Thomas, the president of the party with the flame was the guest Thursday evening on BFMTV. The opportunity for Jordan Bardella to portray Éric Dupond-Moretti as a “gang leader”, who “should have resigned” not for his legal troubles but “for his record.”
Listing a series of news items that have taken place in recent months, the MEP considers that the minister “spends his time insulting, insulting not only the first opposition party in France, but insulting people who for years years have criticized the excesses of judicial laxity.” If Jordan Bardella refused to affirm that “zero risk” would not exist if the National Rally assumed responsibility, he ironically urged the Minister of Justice to speak with “the families of the victims and the injured” of Crépol to “tell them that we cannot do otherwise” and that there is an “inevitability”.
Marine Le Pen having decided to file a complaint against Éric Dupond-Moretti for his comments in the Chamber, her successor at the head of the RN indicated that it was being prepared. “I have had enough of the representatives of 42% of people who voted for Marine Le Pen during the presidential election being constantly insulted, scorned, spit in the face by Mr. Véran, Mrs. Borne, Mr. Dupond-Moretti. That’s enough,” jeered the nationalist. Sweeping away the “judicialization of the political debate”, Jordan Bardella nevertheless intends to say “stop at a given moment”.
