Nah, it is just an echo chamber article of a conspiracy theory.

Ghosn embezzled millions of USD. Stick to what matters.

Nissan exists because Renault had the resources to help them out. Now that the balance of power has shifted, Nissan is unwilling to do the same? Pathetic...

So he paid to put his head on a stamp and was cozy with the super-rich, apparently paid for with OPM.

What a guy. I hope he gets a fair trial, and goes to jail with an appropriate sentence for grand larceny if found guilty of embezzlement. A thief is a thief, regardless of his popularity.
