A former Democrat claims that the Democrats don’t want a border wall because they are being paid off by the cartels to kill the plan.

Jeffrey Peterson is a former Democrat and he is advancing a theory that Democrats have sold out to the cartels. It’s important to note that neither myself nor this site is endorsing Peterson’s theory. We are merely reporting what he has said. Are the Democrats receiving money from the cartels? I don’t know and neither do you, with one exception.

El Chapo has contributed at least 15 million to the Clinton Foundation.

We reported earlier that the former Mexican President has been aligned with Mexican cartels.  He’s accused of taking millions from the cartels –

Former Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto accepted a $100m (£77m) bribe from drug cartel kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, a witness has testified.

Alex Cifuentes, who says he was a close associate of Guzmán for years, told a New York City courtroom that he had told authorities of the bribe in 2016.

Guzmán is accused of being behind the Sinaloa drug cartel, which prosecutors say was the largest US drug supplier.

Mr Peña Nieto served as the president of Mexico from 2012 to 2018.

Guzmán, 61, has been on trial in Brooklyn since November after he was extradited from Mexico to face charges of trafficking cocaine, heroin and other drugs as leader of what the US has called the world’s largest drug cartel.
