Are Juan Centeno’s journals evidence for a new Argentinian Lava Jato? This former military officer and government driver’s personal records have shaken the country, resulting in the arrest of prominent businessmen and former government officials. Both of the former Kirchner administrations are now under scrutiny and this case will surely play a role in the coming presidential election. What does this mean for Cristina Kirchner? Can she stage a comeback? “(This scandal) doesn’t change things much until now” says Alan Clutterbuck, “Everyone knows what’s going on. If you look at polls from last Friday, 88 percent of the people are aware of what’s going on.” Even so, fewer Argentines seem willing stray from their party as a result. Clutterbuck and AQ Editor-in-Chief Brian Winter discuss the implications of this case for the country and for the future.
