Le Pen Stripped of Immunity in ISIS Twitter Case

Francosi Fillon's election prospects imploding as he faces possible corruption charges

His campaign treasurer quit on Thursday, when three Republican lawmakers also announced they were withdrawing their support.

Fillon said on Wednesday that the case was a "political assassination" and even spoke of an "institutional coup" to prevent him from being president.

Mr Fillon, a 62-year-old father-of-five, admits employing his wife Penelope, from Abergavenny, but denies wrongdoing.

Juppe, a former prime minister who was sentenced to a suspended jail sentence in 2004 over a party funding scandal, was beaten by Fillon in the conservative primary in November. Juppe was runner-up, but has said he doesn't want to run in Fillon's place.

Fillon will try to wrest back control of his campaign by setting out his policies on Saturday before holding a rally on Sunday near the Eiffel Tower.

Azoulay added "a lot of our great fashion designers come from elsewhere".

Fillon had been an early favorite to win the presidential race.

"It's a bit much.so she'll respond after [the elections]", he said.

He said he would lead a "demanding" policy toward Russian Federation, but that could involve easing sanctions if Russian Federation fulfills promises under European-brokered efforts to seek peace in eastern Ukraine. The danger for the right is that he could be eliminated in the first round of the two-stage contest on April 23. The caption read "This is the Islamic State.

But if they think his candidacy will finish badly, it's possible they will shift their support elsewhere - whether to [liberal centrist] Emmanuel Macron or to [far right leader] Marine Le Pen".


But the reforms he is promising could bring him into conflict with some of France's powerful interest groups, including the traditionally combative trade unions.

Police officials say authorities searched the Paris home of French presidential candidate Francois Fillon in an investigation into parliamentary jobs for his family members. The candidate firmly believes that the EU can not envision surviving "without a real European strategy".

He has built up his own party machine and attracted endorsements from both the left and right of the political spectrum.

Macron, on the other hand, advocates a moderate, pro-European agenda at odds with that of Le Pen.

Independent French presidential candidate Emmanuel Macron wants an global "roadmap" to better fight Islamic extremism from the Mideast to Africa.

He called for increased military spending to 2% of GDP - as United States and other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have long demanded. He revealed Wednesday he is to meet investigating magistrates to be charged on March 15.

Reuters reported that Le Pen has lost her diplomatic immunity before, in 2013, also over comments she made about Muslim people. "It's the presidential election", he said, flanked by senior party members, after a morning of speculation he was about to quit the race.

But he will now face his biggest challenge yet to keep his Republicans party colleagues in line, with some members known to be plotting against him.

However, Mr Fillon is refusing to stand down despite the increasing pressure.
