Recently elected President of France, Emmanuel Macron, is currently in a bit of a debacle. Investigators today opened a case on Richard Ferrand, one of Macron's closest aides (appointed to Ministre de la cohésion territoriale, or Minister For Territorial Cohesion en Anglais). The investigation is directly related to Ferrand, and a real estate deal he was involved in back in 2011..

There are now calls for Ferrand to resign, but he maintains his innocence.

France's Macron under growing pressure to fire tainted ally (ABC News)

From ABC source:

A French prosecutor opened an investigation Thursday into a close ally of President Emmanuel Macron, putting the new leader under growing pressure to clean up his own government after he campaigned to improve ethical standards in politics.

Macron stayed awkwardly silent after the announcement of the investigation into Territorial Cohesion Minister Richard Ferrand, an early ally who played a pivotal role in the presidential campaign.

The investigation comes at a bad time for Macron and his government, as they are striving to get a majority in parliament in two-round legislative elections this month to push through his pro-business, pro-EU agenda — and just as Justice Minister Francois Bayrou detailed the first major bill of Macron's presidency Thursday, a law intended to clean up corruption in politics.

The first major bill Macron is trying to pass under his presidency, which specifically targets corruption in politics. How ironic is that...

Video Summary (computerized voice.. sorry but it's the best quick and dirty audio/video clip I found so it was worth including for those who don't want to read articles):

But he is innocent until proven guilty.

Nonetheless, I truly feel that Macron is just another corrupt puppet for the globalists. Birds of a feather! We'll see if anything comes of this.

I'm sure he's been under the microscope since before day one of his administration.
The plebes need to see political theater.
the whole "ARGLEBARGLE?" "NO ARGLEBARGLE!" And the blah, blah, blah that follows it, is all just a show.
And whatever you do, don't watch the markets when they arglebargle...

basically you're saying they're about to tank the market and this is a nice distraction? That sounds about right to me too

It's really weird how the French elections saw a really impressive one way result with a really impressive vote turnout. .....

So, how's the king sun after discovering he won't be able to run any of the Napoleonic enterprises?

The Military chief of staff's resignation in France is a carefully orchestrated theatrical move ... Nobody buys it!
