DOJ announces arrest of 'El Chapo's' wife on drug trafficking charges

Source: ABC News

The wife of Joaquin 'El Chapo' Guzman was arrested Monday in Virginia at Dulles International Airport on international drug trafficking charges, with prosecutors accusing her of participating in a conspiracy to distribute cocaine, meth, heroin and marijuana for import into the US.

Emma Coronel Aisupuro is also accused of conspiring with others to assist El Chapo in his July 2015 escape from Altiplano prison and prosecutors said she also planned with others to arrange another prison escape for the drug kingpin before his extradition to the U.S. in January of 2017.

She will make her initial appearance Tuesday virtually in D.C. District Court. Aisupuro, 31, is a dual U.S.-Mexican citizen, of Culiacan, Sinaloa, Mexico.

Guzman Loera was convicted and sentenced to life in prison in New York in 2019 for his role as a leader of the Sinaloa Cartel.

1. I thought it said 'El Cheapo's wife' and I figured it was about Melanoma

2. Were there any high-profile, large drug busts during the Trump Administration?

I don't recall any, but with all the noise and confusion you could have flown a space shuttle under a bridge and no one would have noticed.
