El Chapo Exposed As FBI Snitch Who Ratted On Drug Rivals To Protect Himself

Popular Mexican drug lord El Chapo passed information on rival gangs to US law enforcement to help eliminate his competition, reports claim.

The Mexican cartel boss is said to have met officials from the FBI and the Drug Enforcement Administration on several occasions to feed them information.

El Chapo, real name Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán, is a former leader of the Sinaloa Cartel and was once the most powerful drug trafficker in the world. The claims were made by Anabel Hernández, a Mexican investigative journalist known for her work covering some of the country’s most notorious drug gangs.

She said Ismael “El Mayo” Zambada, El Chapo’s successor as head of the Sinaloa cartel, also attended the meetings.

“They had meetings with the DEA and they gave them information about their enemies,” she said in an interview with Mexico’s La Octava channel. “The fewer competitors they had, the more they grew.”

El Chapo is thought to have amassed assets worth billions after taking over the Sinaloa Cartel in 1995. His convictions include counts of drug trafficking, money laundering, racketeering, and murder, and in 2006 he dragged the Mexican army into a bloody turf battle that left an estimated 34,000 people dead.

El Mayo is currently the subject of a $5million reward offered by the FBI for information leading to his capture. Hernández said she was told about the meetings by El Mayo’s son, Vicente “El Vicentillo” Zambada, also a high-ranking member of Sinaloa.
