El Chapo is alleged to have operated with an innumerable bankroll on the top his Narco-career. The newest inference his wealth and energy involves us within the wake Alex Cifuentes’s grandstand testimony. El Chapo’s former “right-hand man” alleges that he offered former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto with over $100 million in bribe cash.
The report was researched and revealed by Alan Feuer the New York Times, which is included a body by body account the in-court questioning. “Mr. Guzmán paid a bribe $100 million to President Peña Nieto?” requested Jeffrey Lichtman, one El Chapo’s attorneys with Mr. Cifuentes queued up for his cross-examination. “Yes,” he responds, plain and easy.
According to Feuer, this is not the primary time Cifuentes broached the topic a $100 million purse. Back in 2016, Cifuentes had the Peña’s purse at an estimated $250 million earlier than narrowing it down the entire present complete. As startling as it might appear, Cifuentes’ incrimination an elected Mexican ficial truly lends itself to El Chapo’s probability acquittal. His boss’ lawyer Jeffery Lichtman received the race for his testimony, in worry the prosecution would possibly entice him to turn out to be a turncoat. Cifuentes labored with El Chapo between 2007 and 2013 when the latter was hiding out within the Sierra Madre mountains with indictments-a-plenty on the horizon.
