Following the so-called “trial of the century” that led to the 5’6″ Mexican drug lord Joaquin Guzman Loera, better known as El Chapo, his wife, Emma Coronel Aispuro, who’s 30 years his junior, was arrested at Dulles International Airport just outside Washington D.C. in February on drug trafficking charges. After El Chapo received a life sentence plus 30 years for his crimes, the Department of Justice is right on the heels of the Sinaloa Cartel with this latest arrest. But is it enough to take down one of Mexico’s most notorious and dangerous drug cartels?
My guest today is Jerry Dunleavy, he’s a Justice Department reporter with the Washington Examiner.
On today’s show, we’re going to discuss the case of El Chapo, the case that’s being built against his wife, and where American law enforcement is in the fight against these transnational criminal organizations.
