Mexican President Admits He Doesn’t Care If He Broke the Law

( – According to a Breitbart February 26 report, Mexican President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador admitted he didn’t care if he committed any illegal act, referring to a “doxing” he participated in, which led to the public leak of private information about multiple individuals.

During a press conference in Mexico City, Lopez Obrador said that the doxing was done on purpose and suggested it wasn’t a big deal. However, when a Univision reporter told him that doxing was against Mexican laws, the left-wing president claimed that all he did was execute his constitutional rights to defend himself against attacks from media outlets.

The issue began on February 23 when Lopez Obrador blasted the New York Times during his morning press conferences in the capital city. The left-wing president intimidated the newspaper’s journalist Natalie Kitroeff for asking questions about one of the most violent drug cartels in the Latin American nation sending money to his presidential campaign.

In his criticism, Lopez Obrador not only revealed Kitroeff’s full name but also her personal phone number. A couple of hours after the press conference ended, some Mexican news outlets aligned with Lopez Obrador’s government started to criticize the New York Times reporter and the work she was covering about the president and the drug money.

Numerous international press freedom organizations and political activists criticized the left-wing president after the initial doxing, as Mexico has been considered one of the most dangerous nations for journalists over the last few years. Numerous reporters have been brutally killed by drug cartels after accusing a prominent politician of corrupt acts or revealing connections between cartel members and government officials.

Soon after the initial doxing, one of the president’s sons said on social media that someone leaked his phone number and has been receiving death threats since then. Presidential candidate and Lopez Obrador supporter Claudia Sheinbaum also said on February 25 that she has been doxed and has received “all types of messages” on her cell phone. Opposition party presidential candidate Xochitl Galvez also said that her personal number was leaked.
