It is not like this. In the face of aggression, President communicated with Cristina and a collaborator taking an interest in the situation and making himself available”.
“After that,” he continued, “he called me, instructing me to Let’s act rigorously as we did and without repressing, remembering that we all come from the same school. What do I mean with this? Do not leave single words or adjectives that are later used by the prophets of hate“.
In the following post, the head of the Security portfolio recalled his years with the head of the Senate and her husband, former President Néstor Kirchner, and expressed: “I have spent so many years by Cristina and Néstor’s side that I take them on as a family. I have said it and I keep my expressions of affection that I only express with the care of privacy. I have worked on everything that was asked: hard or not so hard, agreeing or not. And I will always be“.
And he added: “As the years go by, I have earned the right to express my opinion and bank what I feel is right (you may not like that). As the person responsible for security I took care of Cristina’s person without her noticing, with civilian personnel. The President is aware.”

“Because I appreciate and respect you, do not hesitate to answer you. I fall in love with the expression of Juan Perón stating: ‘Those who want to hear, let them hear, those who want to follow, let them follow, my company is loud and clear, my motto, my cause is the cause of the people, my guide is the flag of the country‘. Surely we think very alike and I feel you are a great partner”.
“A strong Peronist hug”, closed Aníbal Fernández.
