檢 Researcher Lee Jeong Jo-jun’s knife point… “Extraordinary sparing of words”
“We need at least an expression of remorse” is spreading within the party
“Possibility of holding a press conference on the 5th, the 100th day of inauguration”
Jeong Jin-sang is expected to be charged on the 11th… “It is inevitable to announce the situation”
On the 5th, Lee Jae-myung, chairman of the Democratic Party of Korea, will mark his 100th day in office.
Meanwhile, he has been responding to various doubts around himself, such as Daejang-dong, with a defensive attitude rather than an active rebuttal.
This is Reporter Ahn Yoon-hak.
One of the biggest concerns in politics these days is Lee Jae-myeong’s ‘mouth’.
He is unusually repulsive about his words even though the knife of the prosecution’s investigation seriously points to him, such as the arrest of two people who were close to him.
Even a voice within the party says that expression of remorse is needed as little as possible.

First of all, there are many analyzes that the 100th day of inauguration on the 5th is the right time to open your mouth.
It is expected that a message will be announced in some way, such as a press conference, but on the 11th, Jeong Jin-sang, the head of the Political Coordination Office, is expected to be identified, so he has no choice but to announce his position .
Along with the expression of regret regarding the investigation into the arrest of his aides, attention is focused on whether there will be an active refutation or clarification of various allegations such as Daejang-dong.
[이재명 / 더불어민주당 대표 (지난달 25일) : 이런 식으로 계속 계좌를 털다 털다 보면, 계좌 다 닳아 없어질 거 같습니다. 검찰이 수사를 해야지 쇼를 해서야 되겠습니까?]
However, whatever the content of the message, the political burden that Lee will bear is not small.
If you express your apology or regret, it is very likely that it will be considered as acknowledging the allegations of taejangdong that have been raised so far.
However, if the prosecution presents evidence to the contrary in the future, it can be a significant legal burden to disprove it.
Therefore, it cannot be ruled out that more firepower will be poured into the public good and the ‘Itaewon Disaster’ rental crime as it is at the moment.

Do you launch a full counter attack, or do you still focus on defense?
As the prosecution’s investigation into himself accelerates and voices of discontent within the party gradually spread, CEO Lee Jae-myung’s struggles also deepen.
