A former close personal aide to Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman testified that the drug kingpin once paid a $100 million bribe to former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto.
The stunning testimony came from the Colombian drug lord Alex Cifuentes Villa who once served as Guzman’s secretary and close personal aide.
Is anyone surprised that the drug corruption goes directly to the top?

Sinaloa drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman paid a $100 million bribe to former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in 2012, according to testimony given in a New York federal court on Tuesday.
The testimony was given by Colombian drug lord Alex Cifuentes Villa, who said that Peña Nieto first contacted Guzman “about the time he was elected president in late 2012, asking the drug lord for $250 million in exchange for calling off a nationwide manhunt for him,” The New York Times reported.
“Mr. Guzman paid a bribe of $100 million to President Peña Nieto?” Guzman attorney Jeffrey Lichtman asked Cifuentes during cross-examination.
“Yes,” Cifuentes answered.
Cifuentes claimed that Guzman responded to Nieto’s offer by making a $100 million counteroffer.
“The message was that Mr. Guzmán didn’t have to stay in hiding?” Lichtman asked.
“Yes,” Cifuentes responded, adding: “that very thing is what Joaquin said to me.” More

When drug dealers get busted, the local law enforcement agencies frequently add cars, SUVs, airplanes, and boats to their patrols. Don’t see why the US couldn’t take Chapo’s money and put it to really good use.
