He also helped the feds tap the kingpin's texts w/his wiife, Emma Coronel, taking us deep into the intimacies (and crimes) of their marriage.
One moment, the couple is cooing over how cute their twin daughters are and talking about Emma's enchiladas, the next their talking about whether Chapo's soldiers were slaughtered in a gunfight.
"Oh love, that's horrible," Emma write.
Turns out, Chapo was using Flexi-spy spyware to monitor Emma's phone. The IT guy installed it. He told the FBI. The FBI subpoenaed Flexi-Spy.
Chapo's texts w/his wife.
Chapo wasn't only spying on Emma's phone. He had two side chicks (who look exactly like her by the way) and he was spying on their phones too.
So guess what the FBI got their hands on?
That's where we're headed after this quick break, it seems.
The FBI, in league with Chapo's IT guy, used his own lust and sexual paranoia against him in order to collect the most private communications one could imagine.
Emma, the wife, was so knee deep in Chapo's business that she would often hand her phone to her father who was one of Chapo's lieutenants.
Chapo and the father used Emma's phones to plan major-league drug deals.
Un. Be. Lievable.
"How are the sales going?" Chapo texts her one day.
"Oh, like busy bees," Agustina writes back. "Non-stop, my love."
"I'm way smarter than him," she writes.
"Dont think about it, do it," she texts one guy.
Chapo ran what seems to be a substantial amount of his international drug business through the women he was involved with.
We know this because he was spying on them and the FBI was able to leverage his paranoia into devastating evidence.
At one point, he asked Rodriguez to install a new feature on the phones, allowing him to remotely — and secretly — activate their microphones.
He would call people who had the “special” phones and chat with them a while then hang up, secretly activate the mic and listen to what they said about him.
“El Chapo distracted the woman and I installed the spy software,” Rodriguez said.
We'll likely hear more not only about Chapo's snooping nature, but also the story of how Rodriguez was recruited by the feds to turn on his employer. And then had a mental breakdown when the cartel went after him.
