Despite those remarks, Le Pen defended her position, saying, "I am not obstructing justice, I'm obstructing injustice".
"Her father is a great man, a true patriot".
A group of Femen activists also disrupted a speech of hers in 2015. Following the unexpected successes of anti-globalisation forces in 2016, a victory for Ms Le Pen might seem inevitable.
This has boosted the Euro, as Macron offers a much more stable outlook for French politics, particularly as, unlike Le Pen, he has no plans to withdraw France from the Eurozone.
"Given France's favourable demographic outlook, productivity-enhancing structural reforms would likely imply an improved longer-run growth outlook".
Iran Launches 'Smart, Advanced' Rockets in Military Drill
New Pentagon chief James Mattis, for his part, has branded Iran "the single biggest state sponsor of terrorism in the world". He said: "Iran would do well to look at the calendar and realise there's a new president in the Oval Office".
Le Pen, 48, who has denied any wrongdoing and says she is the victim of "political dirty tricks", is set to come first in the first round of an election for president on April 23 but lose in the May 7 runoff to either independent Emmanuel Macron or conservative Francois Fillon, according to opinion polls.
French expats living in London have been told by one of the candidates in the Presidential election to move back to France. However, she has been under fire over the cost of her "national currency" proposal and accusations of fake jobs in the European Parliament.
Both candidates support remaining in the EU.
The Berenberg economists said that if Le Pen wins a majority in parliament or finds a legal loophole to call a referendum on euro or European Union membership against a parliamentary majority and then wins such a referendum against the odds, it could spell the end of Europe. In nearby Netherlands, far-right politician Geert Wilders also leads the polls ahead of March elections.
Far-right leader Marine Le Pen wants to "do away" with the European Union and build a Europe of "free nations" if she is elected French president in May. However, she is accused of paying her cabinet director, Catherine Griset, more than $320,000 from that pool of funds. She attributed actions in Iraq, Syria and Libya to the United States, as well as the fallout, from the surge in migrants to destabilization in the Mediterranean and "dangerous games with Islamic militias". "They said it would be happy, it turned out to be atrocious", Le Pen said. Griset was placed under formal investigation this week on suspicion that she helped disguise her true employment conditions at the European Parliament. But experts caution not to draw easy parallels. The threat from Marine Le Pen's rising popularity has seen him take the extraordinary step of sacrificing his own campaign in order to throw his backing behind Macron. She said she wanted to "tie up" Russian Federation to the EU.
