Cospedal and the sewers of the state

The former secretary-general of the PP and exministra de Defensa, María Dolores de Cospedal, resigned from the executive power of the PP this Monday as a result of the scandal of the talks with ex-commissioner Villarejo, who with all creaks how the sewers from the state work. In yesterday's chapter, Cospedal asked Villarejo to examine the brother of Alfredo Pérez Rubalcaba. "It's a weakness that you can use," he said based on the relationship that Rubalcaba's brother had with the owner of Detective Agency Method 3, who was involved in matters such as the La Camarga restaurant.

This assignment adds what she already did – and her husband, Ignacio López del Hierro – to investigate Javier Arenas. The talks that this dark commissioner has led to a real earthquake in Madrid, where everyone speculates with the long list of characters that could be included. But for the moment it is clear about the conversations with Cospedal that Villarejo is someone who identifies with the Popular Party. It seems indeed quite clear that the former Commissioner was the key in the PP's strategy to torpedo the investigation into the Gürtel case. It was Villarejo that allowed the PP to know in advance some of the researchers' movements and therefore to move forward. Only this should be the subject of an investigation and the opening of a case by obstruction of the law.

That is why it is clear that Cospedal thinks he can only withstand the storm by giving up his place in Genoa. And even more amazing is that Pablo Casado strives to pass on the tips above this scandal without making painful decisions, because every day Cospedal accidentally occupies a seat in the Congress of Deputies, it will be a day on which the PP becomes jointly responsible for the gross war against external and internal political opponents, who, as has been seen, led the former secretary-general from the headquarters of the party.

On other occasions we have said that Spanish democracy is due to the irregular financing of the parties, but now we know that the PP has at least used the state's apparatus to spy on and offend the opponents and eventually stay in power . It is not clear that justice does not act ex officio to clarify all crimes that are dealt with in the discussions that have been circulated so far, starting with the case of the emerity with Corinna's Sayn-Wittgenstein and ending with the insinuations of the current Minister of Justice, Dolores Delgado, on colleagues from the judiciary who he reportedly saw with minors at a symposium in Cartagena de Indias.

In the coming days we will see whether the new revelations ultimately have a destabilizing effect on Spanish politics or whether it is in a new episode of corruption and bad practices of the PP. Perhaps it is time to lift the carpets and to know the truth about the Spanish politics of the last and perhaps the last decades.
