EL CHAPO OUTRAGED THAT HIS TRIAL INCLUDED
FLORENCE, COLORADO (The Borowitz Report)—The convicted drug lord known as El Chapo said on Thursday that he was "outraged" his 2019 trial had included witnesses. He also revealed that he was demanding a new trial without them.
Speaking from ADX Florence, a maximum-security facility in Colorado, the former drug kingpin complained that his trial would have resulted in a speedy acquittal had it not been for the irritating presence of witnesses.
El Chapo said that, at the time of his trial, he had been totally unaware that it was possible to have a trial without any witnesses at all.
"I didn't know that was a thing," he said. "If someone had told me that you could have a witness-free trial, that's the route I would have gone, for sure."
The former criminal mastermind said that he was now actively seeking a new trial without witnesses because, in his opinion, "witnesses ruin everything."
