Hello from Day 32 of El Chapo's trial.

More testimony coming this morning from Lucero Sanchez, the mistress who was with Chapo when he escaped naked through a tunnel under his bathtub.

But there's more to her story. Lots more.

ICYMI: Here's what happened with El Chapo's naked escape through the hidden tunnel under his bathtub. This is where Lucero left off with her testimony last week.

It shows the steel door that bought Chapo and Lucero enough time to escape, and the mechanism that opens the tub.

#BREAKING: TRUMP DIRECTED COHEN TO LIE TO CONGRESS.

He told Cohen to give FALSE testimony about building a Trump Tower Moscow, aka the Moscow Project.

There's a reason Mueller had Cohen plead guilty to THIS crime.

It's #WitnessTampering + #Obstruction.
buzzfeednews.com/article/jasonl…
#WATCH: Barr said a President suborning perjury would be #Obstruction.

Q: "A president persuading a person to commit perjury would be obstruction. Is that right?"

Barr: "Yes."

Q: "...a president...convincing a witness to change testimony would be obstruction...?"

Barr: "Yes."
#REDFLAG: Mueller's Office takes the rare step of PUSHING BACK on Buzzfeed News' reporting.

They seem to dispute the "description" and "characterization" of corroborating documents and testimony in the article.

But not necessarily the central premise...

#BREAKING Russia wins again—thanks to Republicans! Senate just killed Democrat-led effort to keep #sanctions on Russian oligarch #Deripaska, @mkraju reports
@mkraju Our EU allies are adding Russians to their sanctions list and Republicans are taking them off. Even @MittRomney caved to the Kremlin today on lifting Deripaska's sanctions. Reporters need to press him hard on this. Is it b/c Romney's helping get a Mormon temple built in Russia??
Oh >> Former Republican Senator David Vitter has been lobbying for #Deripaska’s companies for months. This may explain why so many Republicans voted today for lifting #sanctions. GOP stick together, even when on team Kremlin - CNNPolitics cnn.com/2019/01/16/pol…

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.
