This article talks about the Medellin Cartel, but much more recent ties to the Sinaloa Cartel have been revealed.
Obmama’s Fast and Furious was possibly an arms shipment to Deep State ally Chapo Guzman. It is a fact he had one of the weapons in his possession when arrested.

I hadn’t considered the drug angle in the establishments vehement opposition to Trump. Another case of follow the money.
