The U.S. senator claims that two DEA informants on "Los Chapitos" were killed in Mexico


The Republican Senator Chuck Grassley has stated that two informants who were providing information about "Los Chapitos," the sons of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán, within the Sinaloa Cartel, have been allegedly killed in Mexico. 

These informants were cooperating with the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) in an investigation into fentanyl trafficking.

In a letter sent to the Attorney General of the U.S. Department of Justice, Lisa Monaco, Grassley expressed his concern about the deaths of these two informants and questioned why the DEA's case was prioritized over allowing other federal agencies to bring charges against "Los Chapitos" for the same offense.

Grassley has been closely following this case and has sent several letters to the Department of Justice regarding the DEA's investigation into "Los Chapitos." 

It's worth noting that in April, the Department of Justice filed charges against 28 members of the Sinaloa Cartel, including the four sons of Joaquín "El Chapo" Guzmán: Iván Archivaldo Guzmán Salazar, Alfredo Guzmán Salazar, Joaquín Guzmán López, and Ovidio Guzmán López.
