***THREAD. The Financial Intelligence Unit (FIU) of the Mexican Ministry of Finance is investigating an "extortion network" that operated from the Presidency during the six-year term of Enrique Peña Nieto, in connection with the CISEN (Mexican CIA). (source links in this thread)
The story has been trending in Mexico the past 48 hours but has not been widely reported by the U.S. media.

In an interview with respected Mexican publisher Aristegui News, the FIU director stated, "[we are] reviewing the finances of the ex-president
and international financial systems, with the collaboration of foreign governments, and that before the end of the year the results of his inquiries will be announced."

The extortion scheme allegedly operated by the FIU consisted of soliciting bribes from 722 individuals and
companies whose bank accounts had been frozen from the FIU between 2014 and 2018 for alleged money laundering.

The bribes allegedly, he continued, were collected through representatives
of at least five law firms linked to the legal advisor of Peña Nieto. As confirmed by the following screenshot, Arizona political figure Marco A. Lopez Jr. served as the United States advisor to Peña Nieto during Peña Nieto's Presidential campaign.
In July, former Mexican President Peña Nieto's lawyer, Juan Collado, was arrested by authorities in Mexico City for ties to organized crime and money laundering. Authorities cited international money transfers through the countries of Spain and Andorra.
