SEE IT: El Chapo paid $100M bribe to ex-Mexican president: secretary

Drug lord Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman paid a $100 million bribe to former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto in 2012, his former secretary alleged in explosive testimony Tuesday.

“You gave a story that Mr. Guzman paid a bribe to Mr. Peña Nieto of $100 million,” Chapo’s lawyer Jeffrey Lichtman asked Alex Cifuentes during cross-examination in Brooklyn federal court, referring to his previous discussions with US authorities.

“That’s right,” Cifuentes said.

The bribe allegedly took place in October 2012 — which was after he was elected but before he took office in December that year.

Lichtman noted Cifuentes had told authorities the graft was delivered by a woman named Madre Maria in Mexico City
