No. Mr. President. They’re not naive. Not at all.
Those European Parliament members calling for my immediate release and describing the charges against me as “fabricated”, “spurious” and “invented”, know what they’re talking about.
They know a case of political persecution when they see one. While ostensibly the charges against me are criminal offenses – drug trafficking (!!!) – and not a political one, the same are completely bogus as they are anchored on coerced, false testimonies, courtesy of your wicked lieutenants and operators.
They saw how you unleashed your arsenal of foul means, including invectives and misogynistic attacks against me. That yours is a deep-seated personal vendetta is too transparent that only the blind and the dumb would fail to see.
The men and women of the EU would not risk their individual reputation and that of the political parties and/or the governments they represent if they’re not convinced of my innocence.
They know the truth, Mr. President. They don’t buy your lies about me.
So do a silent majority of your people.
