In a trail today of captured Mexican drug lord "el chapo" in New York a former Colombian Cocaine supplier of El Chapo revealed to the court that El Chapo had paid over $100,000,000 Millions in bribe to The Former Mexican President in the last decade.

Why would the Mexican President want a wall when it will be bad for his pocket and his friend El Chapo?

El Chapo Trial: Former Mexican President Peña Nieto Took $100 Million Bribe, Witness Says

The former president of Mexico, Enrique Peña Nieto, took a $100 million bribe from Joaquín Guzmán Loera, the infamous crime lord known as El Chapo, according to a witness at Mr. Guzman’s trial.

The stunning testimony was delivered Tuesday in a New York courtroom by Alex Cifuentes Villa, a Colombian drug lord who worked closely with Mr. Guzmán from 2007 to 2013, when the kingpin was hiding from the law at a series of remote ranches in the Sierra Madre mountains.

“Mr. Guzmán paid a bribe of $100 million to President Peña Nieto?” Jeffrey Lichtman, one of Mr. Guzmán’s lawyers, asked Mr. Cifuentes during cross-examination.

“Yes,” Mr. Cifuentes said.

Mr. Guzmán may offer more details soon. Shortly after the jury was excused around 4:30 p.m. Tuesday, Mr. Lichtman submitted his client’s name to the prosecution as a potential witness for the defense, confirming that the drug trafficker might testify in his own trial.

What's more El Chapo who paid $100 millions in bribes to the Mexican President seem like he will offer information and testify against the Mexican President.

As for the wall, Mexico has paid over $15 billions in US dollars to the US via Trump tarrifs that MAGA put on Mexico last year. And Mexico is still paying. The Only problem is Democrats refuse to use those Mexican tarrif money/pesos.
