Hello from Day 30 of El Chapo’s trial.

Alex Cifuentes is back on the witness stand for more cross-examination. My story on his claim yesterday that Chapo paid a $100 million bribe to @EPN, among other stunning allegations…

news.vice.com/en_us/article/…
The government filed a sealed motion last night to limit cross-examination of witness. Coming on the heels of yesterday's testimony about presidential bribery, we can guess what it's about…
Lost amid the craziness yesterday was some fascinating testimony by Alex Cifuentes about El Chapo's business in Canada.

We heard how the cartel planned to buy homes on Lake Champlain to smuggle drugs by boat, but it seems most of the business was done in Vancouver BC.

@today_explained @vicenews A lot to unpack from Alex's testimony just now — he spoke about the escape tunnel in one of Chapo's homes in Culiacán, several kidnappings, a murder plot involving the Hell's Angels in Canada, and an attempt to payoff a Mexican general with a $10 million bribe. Just staggering.
@today_explained @vicenews Alex told one story from October 2012 about a boat voyage gone wrong from Mazatlan to Ecuador. Chapo sent him to take care of some business. There were six guys on a small sailing vessel. Alex was carrying $1 million cash in an icebox.
@vicenews Alex's boat broke down off the coast of Costa Rica. They were stranded, he said, until "the US Coast Guard rescued us." They alerted Chapo to what was happening and dumped everything over the side of the boat, including the cash in the icebox.

#BREAKING: In the days after Trump fired Comey as FBI director, law enforcement officials became so concerned by his behavior that they opened up a counterintelligence investigation into whether he had been working on behalf of Russia against US interests. nyti.ms/2RH4nD4
(!!!!!!) "Counterintelligence investigators had to consider whether the president’s own actions constituted a possible threat to national security."

Based on Rudy Giuliani's statement to the @nytimes regarding the FBI's counterintelligence investigation, it appears that Giuliani does not understand how counterintelligence investigations work.

They don't make a habit of publicizing these things.
