1 : An #ElChapo US corruption thread:

Evidence presented at trial demonstrated that to further the interests of the Sinaloa Cartel, Guzman 'El Chapo' Loera and his organization took advantage of a "vast network of corrupt government officials."


2 : These officials ranged from local law enforcement officers, prison guards, state officials, high ranking members of the armed forces, as well as politicians. Corrupt officials assisted #ElChapo in exchange for millions in bribery payments.
3 : According to reporters in the Brooklyn courthouse, Mr Peña Nieto requested $250m before settling on $100m. Cifuentes claimed the delivery was made to Mexico City in October 2012 by a friend of #ElChapo.
4 : According to the testimony of several witnesses, in many instances, #ElChapo and his workers were warned of pending law enforcement operations which allowed El Chapo and members of his organization to avoid capture.

5 : Factor:

W's "Wide Reciever" and @BarackObama @EricHolder disastrous "Fast & Furious" operations (AZ) releasing weapon into the hands of smugglers so "the arms could be traced to the higher echelons of Mexican drug cartels."

U.S. @CBP agents died.

6 : In other instances, #ElChapo, through his employees, paid officials to turn a blind eye to trafficking activities in an effort to facilitate the shipment of drugs, weapons, and bulk cash.


7 : Factor Los Pinos, where U.S. Reps Richard Hanna, @SpeakerPelosi, @BetoORourke and Henry Cuellar meet with Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto who witnesses testified took a $100 million dollar bribe from #ElChapo?

8 : Now Factor:

#BorderSecurity and @TheDemocrats calling to abolish @ICEgov + @HouseDemocrats' insolent obstruction of @realDonaldTrump's efforts to defeat drug/#HumanTrafficking cartels.
