In 2011, Rodriguez had another harrowing meeting — this time with the FBI. The agents approached him in Bogota. “They told me they knew I worked for Chapo and I was in serious trouble,” he said. He lied at first, too frightened to admit he worked for the notorious El Chapo, he said. But he soon decided to cooperate under an agreement in which he would not be charged with a crime, could eventually relocate to the United States, and would be paid $480,000, which included his expenses and relocation fees.
