    Technical question:

    If the pastas wanted to plant evidence on Cretina could they even lay their hands on enough greenbacks of the proper vintage to make the frameup appear realistic enough for theatrical consumption?

    There will be nothing left. This has already been in the public eye since 2013, enough time to clear the properties and stash the money safely overseas. What people are demanding is the stripping of Senatorial immunity so Cristina's pending arrest warrant can be served. This “search” is too little, too late.

    Sensible decision (although one of few I suspect) not to antagonise the Senate. Crowds are not on her side either. Nice feeling for those who felt the husband and wife unkind doings in an earlier period. Unlikely to be many with genuine and heartfelt sympathy for her plight.
