El Chapo is going to court very soon, and Hollywood Great, Sean Penn could have one of his recent interviews with Rolling Stone used as evidence.

Penn sat down with the drug lord in 2015 for the interview, for which the location was secret and the final project had to be approved by Chapo before being published.The U.S. Attorney’s office has filed for a motion asking the judge if they can use select pieces from the interview.

They are not telling what they want to use, but they are sure about pieces they do not use, being parts about his upbringing and family that prosectors could bring sympathy to the alleged killer. No shocker that they would not want to paint any type of sympathetic picture of Chapo. They also want to keep out the pieces of him denying being part of the cartel, and him claiming he never initiated any violence. The feds believe these statements are false.
