The Son Of One Of The Top Leaders Of The Sinaloa Cartel Testified That Former Mexican President Vicente Fox’s Chief Bodyguard Worked For Them. The Bodyguard Was One Of Several Top Military Figures That Received Large Cash Bribes In Exchange For Favors And Information.
The bombshell revelation comes during the testimony of Vicente Zambada Niebla as part of the ongoing drug trafficking trial against Sinaloa Cartel’s boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. As Breitbart News has reported, the ongoing trial has not only provided a glimpse into the inner workings of Mexico’s largest drug cartel, it has also outed several public officials at the highest levels as having worked for the cartel while claiming to be fighting it.
