Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
DOJ U.S. Attorney: Former Honduran Congressman Tony Hernández convicted In Manhattan Federal Court of conspiring to import cocaine into the United States and related firearms and false-statements offenses

Hernández Participated in the Importation of Almost 200,000 Kilograms of Cocaine, Used Heavily Armed Security including Members of the Honduran National Police, and Coordinated Two Drug-Related Murders

Hernández made millions of dollars through his cocaine trafficking, and he funneled millions of dollars of drug proceeds to National Party campaigns to impact Honduran presidential elections in 2009, 2013, and 2017.  Between 2010 and at least 2013, one of Hernández's principal co-conspirators was former Sinaloa Cartel leader Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera, a/k/a "Chapo". During that period, Hernández helped Guzmán Loera with numerous large cocaine shipments and delivered a $1 million bribe from Guzmán Loera to Hernández's brother in connection with the 2013 national elections in Honduras.
