This morning, the nationalist senator Graciela Bianchi gave a short press conference where she announced the decision of her party to request the expulsion of the still-senator Gustavo Penadés.
Bianchi explained that the consensus of all parties with parliamentary representation will be sought. “We understand that it must be a message from the entire Senate,” he assured, adding that the president of the Chamber, Beatriz Argimón, has already informed the banks of the other parties of the government coalition and the Frente Amplio about it. “We have coordination on WhatsApp between all parties,” he explained.
During the conference, the journalist Leonardo Sarro changed the subject and talked about another case of public interest currently being processed by the Justice Department: the espionage allegedly suffered by Frente Amplista legislators Mario Bergara and Charles Carrera.
“I’m not going to muddy the field with things that have nothing to do with it,” the senator said bluntly.
“Why doesn’t it suit you? answered the reporter immediately.
“Nothing suits me; I will leave the Senate now; I have no livelihood in politics,” he answered, clearly angry. “Don’t hurt me with that kind of insult because I can wait for you at the Prosecutor’s Office, even if you are a journalist,” he threatened.
Nothing offends me or limits me; I am a completely free woman. They are different things that we will explore later; is that clear?
