'El Chapo' trial: a three-month plunge into the bloody ways of the drug trade

'El Chapo' trial: a three-month plunge into the bloody ways of the drug tradeOver the space of nearly three months, a New York jury has heard 54 witnesses deliver dramatic evidence against accused Mexican drug boss Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman. Former associates, ex-employees and a onetime mistress, most of them now inmates in American prisons, have drawn a blood-soaked picture of the Sinaloa cartel — of which El Chapo was co-leader for 25 years — confirming that violent TV series like “Narcos” about notorious drug trafficker Pablo Escobar have not strayed far from the truth. According to the witnesses, the Sinaloa cartel flooded the United States with cocaine with the blessing of countless police, military officers and Mexican officials — going all the way up to the president — who turned their heads in exchange for bribes worth millions.
