"And so by doing that, seeing the effects of it, I started doing it more and more and being more intentional about it. And I started to realize that, like, through many points in my life, I wanted to run. Like, I thought that life would be different if I just picked up and moved and then I would try picking up and moving and the same feelings would follow me. And it was like, OK, maybe it's not outside, maybe it's inside, maybe I need to deal with this. And so that is where this, like, emphasis on joy and peace and all of those things that I want people to have come from, because it wasn't a certain amount of money I needed to make to be happy. It wasn't having the perfect partner or being in this place or all of those things. Like, it started within and then it started to reflect outwardly and it gave me a sustainable amount of happiness and joy and peace. And it wasn't just like, oh, my job is going well, I'm happy. Oh, I lost my job. So now I have nothing. It kind of gave me that balance of, like, whether things are up or down. Like, I have what I need to feel good. A big part of your ethos is this idea of showing up as your best authentic self. Do you have practices that you come back to that allow you to show up in that way? Definitely the way that I'm speaking to myself. Definitely the way that I'm keeping track of my small wins and expressing gratitude, gratitude for nothing, gratitude for everything. It definitely helps me. It helps me to remember that, like I said, everything is inside. It's not outside. And that is what has allowed me, I think, to keep climbing. And that is the part of myself that I started losing when I had those feelings I was talking about last December was like, I wasn't doing as many gratitude practices because it was go, go, go, expand, expand, expand. And I needed to remember that that is just as important as achieving. I have a business question, which is thousands of people now own pieces of your art. How did you figure out how to price your art? I think pricing is always kind of a work in progress. And I wanted my work, especially the prints, I wanted them to be accessible. I didn't want them to be out of reach. So I compared my prices to like people in my industry and there was a higher end and a lower end. And so I tried to match up the quality with the access I wanted people to have and kind of land at a happy medium. Reina, there are people who want to be the next Reina Noriega, and there are also people who work at big brands and they're trying to find someone like you and bring someone like you into the fold. With those two audiences in mind, is there anything you want to share? I would say that regardless of where they fit into that mold, whether they would like to have a successful career or if they would like to work with an artist, the biggest thing that this industry has taught me in this world has taught me is that there's a lot of love that we need and integrity. I would like everyone to start there with being intentional about storytelling and being honest with ourselves and being true to ourselves. There's so much chasing that's going on because sometimes we feel like there's not enough opportunity or we have to be something other than ourselves to get certain results. And the best things in my life have come from authenticity. It might take a little longer, but that's what's going to last. And for me, the sustainability is key. Like I don't want to be a one hit wonder or an overnight success. I want a long, fruitful career. Social media and the speed and AI and all these things are pushing us to go faster, faster, faster, faster, and I don't see any of it lasting. So I hope that the people who are hoping to work with someone like me and the people who are hoping to show up like me know that, like, I am taking my time to build something of quality that will last and not just jumping on trends or trying to be the next this or the next that. Like, I just I want to be me and I want to share that love.That resonates so deeply. Reina, thank you so much for doing this. Thank you so much for having me. Thanks for listening.

"Did you manage the business side for yourself or do you have someone who handles all of that incoming for you? I was completely on my own until late 2020, and then I've had a manager for the last two and a half years and now I'm going back to managing everything myself. Can you talk me through the evolution of thought? I've seen the advantage of having someone filter through those opportunities because otherwise your inbox is just full of random things. And then there are times where someone is handling it for you and you think I would have handled that differently if I would have been one on one with the brand, if I was interacting with them rather than having someone between us. So talk to me both about the decision to take someone on and then the reversion to doing it yourself. Having a manager, it ended up coming naturally. I ended up meeting someone that was the perfect fit for me because I was always kind of stressed out about like someone not really aligning with my goals or not being able to like speak for me the way that I wanted to be spoken for. It taught me a lot about what was possible, like a lot of things that I had just accepted. And I was like, that's the way that it is. I watched my manager like negotiate like, you know, payment terms and net 60s and 90s and those things, higher rates. Obviously, as an artist, you're practicing as long as your needs are met, like sometimes you're not thinking, oh, I should have made 10 times that. So having a manager really helped me to see that my work was valuable and that me as a person that is co-signing these big businesses, that is valuable because they're going to use my image, the way that my audience respects me, my identity as a woman of color. They're going to use all of that to enhance their business. And so that was super important for me to kind of like understand and put my foot down about those things. But in the process, I kind of lost myself and my love for the art. And I started like 2020 was the year of responsibility. Every time I wanted to do something, the back of my head, this word responsibility kept coming up and I felt like I had the responsibility of like growing the business. And making sure that everyone else was able to grow and making sure that everyone else was able to profit and making sure that this was like this well-oiled machine. And so I was going, going, going, going and thinking in a way that just didn't align with the artists and me. And there wasn't enough of that to sustain the business me. How did you know? Like, is it that you felt it in your body? Were you unable to produce artwork? What was it that crystallized for you that in the interest of chasing the business, you were losing the core of the art, which was, of course, the foundation of the business? Last December, I went through a very dark period where I was not my optimistic self. And I felt defeated by a lot of things, defeated by what was going on in the world, just filled with worry. And it wasn't my normal way of thinking. And it started to alarm me because I had never been in a place where I was like, what's the point? Like, why do I keep fighting? Why do I keep doing this and that? And I didn't like that because I don't know what that feeling and what that thinking evolves into. And I didn't think it was good. And so I kind of like had some time to step back, step back from that relationship with my manager. And in the absence, I realized that, like, I didn't desire more of it. It wasn't like I took time off and I was like, I really can't wait to talk to my manager and strategize and do that. I was just like, if not, if not having any more deals means that I don't have to, like, talk and strategize and think this way, then, like, I'm fine. I don't think that's the way that it's supposed to work. Something probably needs to change right about now. Reina, your bio says you have seen the power of introspection, self-reflection and healing. Can you give me an example of when in your own life those have come into play? Constantly, every day. My books are a reflection of that. I would say around the time when I was teaching and imagining more for myself, I started to write down the things that I was thinking and feeling. And when I would look back at those thoughts and that journaling, it would show me that, like, everything that I thought was so bad was a part of the journey. And it was teaching me the lessons so that I could evolve. And it was exposing me to pain points and it was exposing me to trauma and healing that needed to happen.

Rina, I look at your portfolio of work and I see three main avenues. You'll tell me if you see it differently. I see the work that you've done for major publications. I see the work that you have done with brands and then I see the art that you sell to people who want to have it hanging in their homes, in their office. So I want to talk through each of those, how those opportunities, did they find you or did you find them? They definitely found me. I was when I started and I still remain very open to whatever lane my art is meant to live in. So there's a lot of things that I love. I love fashion. I love travel. I love making people feel good. I love home decor and goods and things like that. And so as I've tried to imagine, like this world that I'm creating, where people are happy and confident and they feel seen, I think of the things that I touch and use and rely on every day and like how art can show up in those spaces. And so as I started sharing more of my work and my personal style, probably around 2018, 2019, I started to kind of like create and manifest opportunities like murals and like designing wine bottles and just different things and doing it on my own. Where are you sharing this all on Instagram? Mostly Instagram at this point, a little bit of Behance as well. People are seeing it and people are getting excited about it and they're tagging other brands. And, you know, they're like, oh, my God, you should design a T-shirt for Rihanna or you should do this or you should do that. That's the advice I give to other artists now all the time is if you're looking for more opportunities, dumb it down for these companies. Show them how you can use your storytelling to help whatever missions and things they have going on. Pretty much what I did. And naturally people started to email and reach out. And one opportunity shows my skills in this aspect that brings more opportunities. And it just it builds and it builds and it builds.

If you have seen Reyna Noriega's colorful and vibrant artwork grace the covers of Science It might be hard to believe that she almost forwent a career in the arts completely. We talk about what pulled her back, the year of responsibility that gave way to the year of rebirth, and her powerful message about ignoring the rush and the trends in the service of building something meant to last. Reyna, I am such a fan. Thank you so much for doing this. Thank you so much for having me, Alicia. All right. So you and I both have Cuban dads. Your mom is Bahamian. You grew up in Miami. How does the Caribbean then show up in your home? It's everywhere to the point where I'm spoiled and I didn't realize that not everyone lives like this. You know, from the meals to just the presence of just joy and music and how all of that is kind of like ingrained in how we interact, how we celebrate. It was such a vibrant upbringing. As an Afro-Caribbean Latina, I don't need to ask if you saw representations of yourself in the media because you and I grew up consuming the same media. We know how few and far between that was. And I think the damage that does is hard to quantify. What happens to a kid when you don't see yourself reflected back at you? Yeah, I sometimes mention like this cognitive dissonance that existed within me that I thought that my blackness came from my Bahamian mother when my abuelo is Afro-Cuban from Havana. You know, so like I'm seeing it. I'm seeing Celia Cruz and I'm seeing my family and it's not clicking. Well did you talk about race in your house? Not, I mean, I think there were definitely conversations, but not really with identity. I know that my abuela was very proud of her husband and that she had chosen to marry a black Cuban, probably against what was the norm at that time and what was accepted. And so that was vocalized, but they always joke with me. Like as a kid, I would say that I'm light black. Like that was my terminology. And so it's just like, you figure it out along the way. Reina, you go to FIU, you get a bachelor of arts in psychology, you minor in visual arts and English. What was the plan at that point? The plan was to figure it out and make my family proud. I discovered that I loved art and I was good at art in high school, but up until that point, I was just a scholar. So I was getting the highest test scores and the highest grades. When I made the decision to apply to colleges for visual arts, I was really happy about that. And I thought, you know, like, this is so fun. This is so great. And I chickened out during my orientation when they, yeah, FIU announced that they were doing a psychology pre-med track. And obviously it's every parent's dream to have a child that's a doctor. It wasn't forced on me, but it was definitely something that I was aware of. Like that would make my parents proud if I was a doctor. And I think the mind is really cool. I could do this. So I approached psychology for that reason, because it was like, if I ever decide that I want to do pre-med, I could do this. I don't want to cut people open. So this is a good way to still do both. And then I was like, you know, art, art is not a sure thing anyways, so I'll just keep it as a minor and I'll have it just in case. That's not how it panned out. It's only a few years after chickening out, taking the safer, more secure path that you really end up pulled back into the arts. What is it that happens in 2017 that you're able to commit yourself fully to a life in the arts? I think I saw throughout college that, you know, obviously as a psych major, I was supposed to do internships and all types of things to complement that. But every time an internship would come up for the arts, like that's what I was pulled towards. And so I did our Basel internships and things like that. And it just, I felt so free and I felt so much joy there and I felt so much possibility that it kept calling to me. And after I graduated in 2015, I got the opportunity to be a high school art teacher. And that was just supposed to be like a buffer period until I got my master's in behavioral psychology and figured out what direction I wanted to take. And all of that. And it just like, it really reinvigorated my love for the arts and the possibilities. And over time I experimented with different materials. When I became an art teacher, the courses were digital drawing base. And so that is where I learned illustration. I had not tried illustration before that, but I had to learn really quickly for my students and to appear like I knew what I was talking about. And so it was a great kind of like push. Like I didn't have time to say like, oh, I like this. I don't like this. I'm scared of this. It was like, you're teaching high school kids digital art and they expect you to know it. So you can go in there as a very young teacher and look like you don't know what you're talking about, or you can go in there confidently. Like, you know everything about it. And so it was pretty much like overnight. I had to teach myself Adobe Illustrator and some other like drawing apps that I could go through with my students. And yeah, it evolved from there.

"You'll talk to us about the weather. This, getting people like you to talk about what they did because you think you're bragging or you think that, hey, you know, that's the toughest part. And to me, that's an indication of your character is that you're not there to brag. I mean, you're not here to just, oh, here's what I did, and this is how I did. Everybody we've talked to without to a person has been tough to get information out of because they're just very humble about the work that they did. So I just tell you, sincerely, I really appreciate what you did. And allowing you to share your story, we'll share it with everybody else, but just you're a part of history, whether you want to accept that or not you're a part of history and putting Manuel noriega out of action, take dismantling that whole operation. You did not just the nation, the service she did the world of service. And for that, we thank you, trooper. Absolutely. Thank you. I got to bring both the Rodriguez brothers back to the states and my handcuffs. There you go. You can do that too. Gilberto, we picked up at Guantanamo Bay, and then Miguel actually went to Columbia. And you remember Keith Curtis? Oh, yeah. Yeah, well, Keith was down there, and he met me at the airport, and then the next day I flew to this military base and they brought Miguel in and we flew him back in a learjet. And so I got involved in that. Just about time I was going to the U.S. attorney's office. They got me involved in that case. And they pled guilty and it worked out well too. They were probably on par with Pablo and a boys old. I don't believe they were as violent as he was.

"It's been petitioning to keep me out of the state because we've actually looked at charlestown and Harper's ferry, you know, that area right there because it's like 20 minutes from our House. So I'll bet you western Maryland would join West Virginia tomorrow if they got an opportunity. I can tell you two of the dividing line. It's going to be somewhere east of Frederick. They'll just cut the state right there and then move it over. So hey, well, look, dude, I got to tell you that I mean, just when you sit back and think about all the stuff you've done, right. It's hard to say, yeah, this one was better than that, but it's like, you've got something to pull from each one. So, you know, first of all, just as an American, I want to thank you for what you did because look, guys like noriega, I don't think that case didn't get the publicity it should have like you were saying, Steve. I mean, they want to talk about Pablo stuff. But this guy was, like you say, killing Americans, taking money from everybody facilitating the transfer, the transnational shipments of dope and Coke and everything else I was coming into the United States. He was just not good for society. And the fact that you convicted him, the fact words, is he an ADX, is he over in supermax? Hate now, no. He did, he did his time here and he went to France because they indicted him over there. He did it some time there. Then he went to Panama and he was under house arrest because of the murder of doctor spadafore, whose body was headless body was dumped in cross the line in Costa Rica. And then he died of cancer. Oh, you know what? I knew that. I forgot that. He's gone. He's gone. Good riddance, you know? He was guilty of everything. He was charged with and a whole lot more. I could tell you that. I remember one time I was sitting in the lockup with him was shown him discovery. And he's going through some photos and as he's finishing when he's given back to me and his investigator was there. So we're speaking in English, and he's over there. And I remember what the town was. Some town of pain and I go, well, where does that town? And without blinking, he doesn't even realize he goes, oh, that's about two and a half in perfect English. That's about two and a half hours out of Panama. Oops. He looks up and just starts laughing because his English was so good. He spoke English. What happened to all his assets?

"I mean, if they did it, why don't I give it it? I already took the LSAT once. So during noriega of towards the latter part of the trial, I decided to do it again. So I quietly ranged for a prep course for the LSAT. I took the prep course, and I took the LSAT again. And did okay. And then I got into the university of Miami. The night program. Good school. And noriega was sentenced in June, and I believe I started law school in August. The day that hurricane Andrew had August 92. I was supposed to start that Monday and Sunday or Saturday or Sunday, whatever it was, is when Andrew hit. So that was made things a lot more difficult. So how was it? So how did you work your cases and go to law school at the same time because you may not be in Miami all the time? You might be going somewhere. Well, I mean, the cases I had then were just local. I mean, if I had to go, I mean, I just didn't, I worked it out the best I could. I was going, I would drive my own car back and forth because I didn't want him coming after me for using their car to work. And then I used the government car for work. And then I'd use my car to go to school at night. And Kenny Ken Kennedy took care of me for a while. I had some issues with some people in DEA about later on. But I was able to get through it. And she tell them I'm a lawyer, give me two years, and I'm going to sue your ass. No, no, I didn't do anything like that. You know like a transfer me. I mean, I don't want to get transferred on it. You can be in Iowa. It's our Alaska. Yeah. Yeah, it's funny because I had an FBI guy with me and we were very good friends. And they did everything they could to help him.

"But stranger, he and he got sentenced he pled guilty. He got sentenced and we forfeited the house. And that was the money went back into the treasury. So on that alone, I didn't cost DEA any money or the government taxpayers for my entire career through that money. That thing was worth. It was on the market for 10 million then. He was trying to sell it. But he bought it after that movie Scarface came out with Al Pacino. Right after that, he bought it. And that was that for him. And sort of as a part of that, we found there was another and he was indicted under the name of Roberto Steiner and the Panamanian at identifying him. It was also a pilot. He just couldn't pronounce stratagem. And then we found another palette and I don't recall his name now. I want to say it was Ortiz, but I'm not sure. He was in France doing time for getting caught in Guadalupe with a load of dope. So we went over a bunch of us went over to Paris twice and we got him to roll over and he came over. And noriega actually put his arm around this witness who was doing a 15 year sentence in France. And told him, don't ever mention you saw me. That would be like putting a picture in my name into Miami Herald. And he came and he was a pilot for the cartel as well. And he testified. And those are witnesses we didn't have. In the beginning, that we developed later. How many witnesses do you think you guys had down there for that trial? Just for this one trial. I'd just be guessing another case I had, the buoy boys I can tell you, but I just don't remember, Steve. You think it was as many as a hundred? I don't think it was that high. And how long did things went a little slower? How long did the trial? Well, judge Hoover had a medical condition. So it really went the trial itself was about 5 months. But we had about a month also. It would have been a 6 month total span of time. Roughly, I mean, I don't know exactly. But I know he had some health issues that cost us take a hiatus for a little while. You know, and for our listeners, I mean, you got to understand that you are, you're on high alert that entire time sitting in a courtroom because you never know when the attorney is going to say something or the prosecutor is going to turn around or the judge is going to ask you a question directly.

"And Frank rubino, who is a former Secret Service, is the Nordic is defense attorney was named Frank rubino. Former Secret Service Asia for Miami former Miami Beach cop. Frank's not stupid. Frank's very smart guy, a good lawyer. Frank says mister later. How much cocaine are you responsible for bringing into the United States? How much cocaine are you responsible? For coming into our nation ending up in our communities near our schools and our children and our families. Cross layer spoke perfectly. She sits back at me. It looks over to mister and he says, well, mister rubino, was that with or without the assistance of your client. Now that's a great answer. A little bit later, Frank says, and Carlos kept referring to noriega as officer noriega. And so Francis. Mister later, why are you keep referring to the general as officer noriega when you know he's a general one company? Carlos sits back a second lies there and he goes, well, mister urbino, you have to understand something. To myself and all the other members of the Medellín cartel, norrie was just another cop, we were paying off. We didn't care what his rank was. Jeez. That's fantastic. And you being a lawyer, you know, he violated one of the first rules of being a defense lawyer as you never ask a question. You don't already know the answer to. Yeah, true. But we had some good witnesses. Another one of the we had two other witnesses that we didn't ever counted on. One of them, I get a phone call. From an agent in Bogotá. And I knew him. And he says, hey, we got to inform us in a house down here. You got some guy with an S that was indicted in. I go, yeah, Roberto Steiner. He goes, well, he's from the department of allemande. Which is a means German and Spanish, and it's in Colombia. And he goes, and his last name is strident sure. And he's bragging about the stupid Panamanian couldn't pronounce his name. And he's in Miami. He used to be Pablo Escobar's aviation guy. That's what I was told. So I said, well, where does he live? He lives in Nixon's old winter White House. Well, he did. He owned it.

"What I remember behind the prosecutor's table was like a sea of boxes that were all opened that had numbers on them that contained all the documentary. And I'm thinking, oh my God, how are you going to find anything? And then I found out what your responsibilities were. And I'm thinking, holy cow, I think Steve was sitting to prosecutors table when you were handling the evidence. Is that right? Yeah. Yeah, yeah. I did all the evidence. Oh my gosh. My house had my witnesses. I had my witnesses had to deal with too. Let's talk about the process of going through that because this is obviously high profile. It's a criminal case along with a military operation to remove him. What were you under any kind of pressure from bosses higher ups in terms of like, you know, I didn't know how high profile this was because every case is going to get pressure. Was there anything different about this case that caused unique pressures? Or did you handle it just like any other case? I mean, this guy was the leader of a sovereign country at one point and now he's in U.S. custody. That's doesn't happen often. Well, from my standpoint, it wasn't any different than any other major case we had. Nobody ever once said with this better happen, that better happen, or you know, don't do this, don't do that. That just didn't happen. Not to me. I mean, I was a GS 13, which is a journeyman level. And I wasn't a boss, but I never, it was done just the way any other cases done. How did you know we had a reputation in DEA of doing every case that way that when DEA took people to trial in federal court, their butts went to prison? That's correct. So how did you end up on this case in the first place? There had to be a lot of DEA agents in Miami. So how did you draw the short straw or the ugly strong in the case of noriega? Ken Kennedy knew my Boston in Baltimore, Tommy o'grady. I wrote a lot. You said who Ted Kennedy? Kennedy. Can candidate candidate. I thought you said Ted Kennedy, the senator. And Ken Kennedy, Irish man born on Saint Patrick's Day. God rushed his soul. He was the number two boss above me. And there was a first line supervisor, and then it was Ken. Ken was in charge of a group of them. And he, I mean, I did historic conspiracies.

"Baron Kia. I knew Renee. And then I'm adding actually met him in earnest when I got to Miami. He was here at the time. And if our listeners want to see a picture of him, the famous picture of noriega being escorted onto the back of the American jet or flight that was going to bring him back to the United States, the guy on the DEA jacket. That's Renee del Cova. And Omar Ali man was with him. Yeah. That's right. I remember Omar in Miami for many, many years and was in training. My understanding was, is that they played a lot of Andy Williams songs to get him to surrender. Well, one of the favorite Wednesday were playing was I fought the law in a long one. No, I was serious though. That was part of the psychological ops. He wouldn't come out once they had him surrounded, they had these huge loudspeakers, just blasting music 24/7 from a psychological standpoint just to disrupt him. What would that make you surrender? About 24 hours. Just as long as you don't play nickelback. That is a joke for some of the modern generation French don't let Friends listen to nickelback. Anyway, I digress, but I don't even know what it is. That's why I said the modern generation. We're talking Lawrence Welk with you here, Lenny. We're talking, you know, now look at them over there with Bobby and Anita. They're very good, yeah, you know. Barry White, first wind and fire. Bob Seger. Bob Seger. I'll tell you, turn the page. One of the great songs he did. I love that one. But let's talk about that again. So, but they were killing people. What was the tipping point in your mind? From what you remember, what was the tipping point to say, okay, look, enough of this asshole or sending in the military. It was just the escalating violence directed at Americans and military people and he was destabilizing the area and president Bush and he's won it too. So I think that it was a conglomerate. Of situations that went into the decision to do what we did. And I was really glad we did. I thought I was very proud of what we did. I know you don't have all the charges memorized, but just kind of give us the high level of a lot of the stuff that he was indicted for. I believe it was ten counts to the indictment, and he was convicted of 8 of them. And it was your general conspiracy to import importation conspiracy to possess with intent to distribute conspiracy to distribute. No, I don't remember all of them at all.

"So it's amazing, you know, when we start talking to everybody, everybody's connected by one to 2° of separation. In other words, you think you're at all these places, but when you get talking, you knew this guy, or we were here at the cross paths at the same time. So, you know, as we're talking, it's amazing to see just even between you two, the fact is that we've had you on Murph, we did him and JP, we had Chris feistel and Dave Mitchell, which, you know, those guys came in and worked the Cali cartel after Pablo. And then we start looking at words, you're connected to, you know, Jerry boykin, you know, you were talking about him. He's down there with Delta. You mentioned a navy, so seal. So anyway, I don't know what point I was making other than to make the point is that there's a lot of points that we connect on these podcasts. I mean, it's amazing. And DEA, this might have been the case with you, Lenny, when you're a young agent, you'd go to your boss and say, boss, I'm looking at this case. This is the target. This is the plan. Blah, blah, blah. And your boss is sitting there and he think about it. He'd say, listen, okay, you got ties to LA go call Joe blow in LA and call this person down in Columbia and call this person over in Russia and they're giving you all these contexts. And after that happens for a couple of years, she's like, how in the hell do you know all these people? Well, then you threw your investigations of traveling the world and especially when you spend time in headquarters, you come out and now you're the guy that all the junior agents are coming, hey, I'm thinking about running a case over here. Okay, you need to call this guy over there and that guy and we're not that big of agency to start with. But you've got contacts all around the freaking world. It's amazing. That's true. It's amazing. You do. You do have people all over the world. Even today, I mean, I've been going a long while, but I still know people in a bunch of different places and it is a small world. And it's amazing. Well, there's what you know and who you know and who you know sometimes this is more important than what you know. And if you're working and you're traveling and you're doing things, you're going to develop your own network. Door noriega, I went to Paris and I'm picking up my luggage. And here's a guy next to me picking up luggage that made a suit for me in Mexico. Like, not even a year before. It was a summary. He did it for everybody in the embassy down there. And it's like, wow, I mean, he just run into people. You know why you run into him? You know, I was just talking and I'm having told Morgan to shit, I don't think, but I was just talking to an active agent over in Canberra, Australia.
"noriega" Discussed on Game of Crimes
"Came back to Miami. I think I came back a little early. And I went to Panama and I spent, I was there probably, I don't know, three weeks a month. Got embedded with a SEAL Team on one mission, and was there, and then in the embassy, and then after all that came back and we started working. And we read did redo everything. We only used one of the original witnesses that was used for the indictment. And Dick Gregory was the AUSA who had indicted it, but he had left the office and was working as a state attorney at the time. And then pat Sullivan was brought in and pat was a he came with a building in Miami. He was 40 years, I think he spent Miami. He's just a fantastic guy. He was my mentor. So was dick. They're both my mentors. And as an attorney, pat was the lead attorney on noriega. He and I tried a bunch of cases together when I was in AUS. Now hold on, see now you're getting too far ahead. Now you're throwing attorney in there with agent. Like you say only if when you're an attorney and the agent, you get to clear yourself in any shooting, right? Yeah. We're not going to prosecute. So I had been to law school yet. I had been to law school. None of that yet. That wasn't even really only agenda. So we spent about three years putting the noriega case together. I traveled all the way to the place France. Twice, what were you putting on? When you say you were putting it together so the invasion happens because noriega, they want to extradite him, right? At that point, they've got indictments on him. That's correct. Let's talk about the indictments for a second because he was indicted on a lot of stuff and like we're saying, you know, George complained because and I would too. It was illegal money, but you lose $63 million. You might kind of be pissed a little bit. Wouldn't it? He nationalized a lot of stuff. By the way, he was doing so much money laundering, not only was he a DEA informant, and I need you to explain that to me, Lenny. He was also taken, I think it was 10% of everything that was deposited in the banks for laundering. So this guy was making millions a month. You know, doing this kind of stuff. Yeah. So let's talk about, let's talk about, did you work any of the case at all that led up to his indictment, or did you work it after he was arrested after the invasion?
"noriega" Discussed on Game of Crimes
"Some reason. Week or two later, we get a phone call. Another three letter agency had an informant in a house in Columbia and he was going around selling copies of the extradition lesson showing showing the traffickers where the armor was on our cars. Gotta love them. And so I went in there with a really great attitude and came out of there with I wanted to turn a place in the glass. So well, you kind of got the opportunity not so much with that, but with Panama. So let's kind of start setting the stage then for general Manuel, the unfortunate looking general, as I say, noriega, and let's start talking about how you got involved with this thing. So let's start setting context for noriega because I will tell you, episode two, we got the last interview with George young. And he talked about losing what was it, Steve, $63 million. Noriega nationalized the banks and he overnight. He's on George Jung, you're talking about the traffic or they made the movie. Oh, okay. That's cool. He was going to look at this as a requirement. Every guest is supposed to listen to every episode and have made notes so that they can contribute to the conversation. And here you are, Lenny. You know what? May a coupe on that one. We'll have to plead guilty because, you know, I'm kind of technically challenged for the most part. And I didn't even know about your pods till Steve called me. Oh. Man. Now I do. Now you do, and there will be a test. I watched all your stuff on narco Steve. There you go. Come on. That's all you need. Yeah. I thought it was very well done. Murph shooting, carrier pigeons, you know, out in the Woods, yes. Somebody had to actually dove hunting one time when I was in Bogotá. And I got to go out and one of the other agents says, oh my God, you can't wear chemo. People wear camos to fart out. All right, so I had to go up with Jade. And we went, we went dove hunting, and it was great. There's nothing like that. You put on hunter's safety orange so that you can become a huge target. At the time. Well, let's start, let's start setting context for the unfortunate looking general. A Manuel noriega. So when did you start getting involved in this case, you know, after we did it, start down and baron Keith because you were so close to Panama. No, not really. You think that even though Panama was so close, it could have been a world away because we just didn't act with any of the other countries who were so busy where we were. One time I was going to go fly up the Panama and go fishing.
"noriega" Discussed on Game of Crimes
"I don't know if you still do or not, but let me tell you, it's getting harder and harder to find people. Maybe you can just commute and fly in from the coast, you know, and do your shift. Probably. Marilyn dot state police was a very good outfit and long tradition a hundred years last year. And it's just, it was a great outfit. I mean, I really enjoyed my time there. I spent two years and 8 months there, and in January. In 1973, I went into the state police academy. I was 20 years old. I turned 21 in February of that year. And it's a 6 month residential you must live there. Academy. And you're allowed to go home on the weekends if you don't have too many debates. So I spent 5 of the weekends there. And we're going to ask you about the memos you had to write when you went to DEA because it sounds like you had to write a few. But we shall hold that. Don't say anything. Don't say anything. We want the magic to happen when we ask you the question. So, but now you did not go to college at this point. I know you went later, right? But at this point, you worked as a cadet, and then you went from being a cadet into the state police. That is correct. I'll tell you the leap program, which was the law enforcement officers assistance program, is what put me through college. And it was a good college. Loyola college in Baltimore, and they put me through. We had a fantastic lieutenant. Glorioso, who set all this up with Loyola college, and they would actually come to our headquarters building and teach the classes. I think my entire time I maybe took one or two courses on campus, but the rest of them were at the state police academy. And it took a while. I mean, it was about 5 years. What did you major in? Sociology with a law enforcement option. Why sociology? Well, that was just one of the ones they offered and it's kind of general and I really didn't. I mean, the only things I've ever done in my life as I worked on a horse farm, growing up the whole time up in Maryland, Vanderbilt's farm where the owners of Under Armour owned that property now. That was a Vanderbilt property sagamore farm. I worked there for a number of years and I worked at a farm on a number of years. So I showed a lot of horsemen or in those years. Then I got in the state police and then you met Murphy. You had to shovel his horseman. That's the mother of shoveling horseman work. So I mean, I didn't know how to do anything else. I mean, I didn't take shop or I did take metallurgy one year in high school. And I figured sooner to be able to get to college. And I did get a bunch of credits in the academy, the 6 month academy. We got a considerable amount of credit. I don't remember how many now. But then I got into the lead program and I just tongue in there and finally

It's suburban Memphis. There are songs about almost every city out there. But hey, anyway, let's talk about this one because this is another friend of yours, but you re exhausted all of your real Friends. This one we had to pay. And the great thing about this episode is you get to for, you had me, we were going to talk, we're going to talk about general Manuel noriega, but when you said ask him about the booby boys, I said, okay. I'm a guy. You got my attention. Nobody ever told and even Lenny didn't tell us how the guy got his nickname. But this is a good friend of mine. We worked together not cases together, but we were signed in Miami during the same time period back in the late 80s, early 90s. And everybody started general Manuel noriega, the dictator that took over Panama. $65 million. And just, you know, was taking payoffs from everybody and their brother. If you wanted to offer him cash, he'd take it and you could get whatever you wanted. Well, Lenny was a sign with another DE agent, Steve Greeley. They were the two agents that were assigned to conduct the investigation and get it ready for prosecution against Manuel noriega and of course we know the U.S. went down there and snatched his happy little butt out and brought him back. But so as I was talking to Lenny about prepping for this, I said, I said, man, this is a great case. Everybody's going to love it here in the real story, Lenny. And he's like, I got to tell you about this other one. You got to look up the booby boys. And he spelled it for me. All right, Lenny is this what we want to talk about on the podcast. He said, just look him up, look him up, and I did an oh my gosh. I mean, you talk about violent crew. You know, and I know I would have thought I would have heard about that case just because of the booby boys. I mean, that's the name you don't forget. Guys, you can't also add another connection to this case, too, because you were in where the trial was being held. You had brought up a Colombian national police officer and you got a special request to do what? Yeah, so when we would bring the Columbia police officers up, then this case I brought a captain up, captain Moreno. And we were in interviewing some informants on some things going on in Colombia. And of course, while they're here, they want to go on shopping trips and things like that. So I said, well, what specifically do you want to do? And he said, you know what? He said, didn't Manuel noriega on trial here, Miami. And I said, yep, and he said, can we just go in and see, I'd just like to see him in person. So we called our office with the U.S. Marshals and as they brought him, brought noriega back in after launch, setting it sitting at the defense table before the judge and jury came in.

They wanna keep the federal government funded through December twenty first what this does is allows them to put this whole budget debate on hold. So they can take the time to pay their respects to the late president, George H W Bush former US Senator from New York Al D'Amato joining us now is he does each week in our Bloomberg eleven three oh studios in New York. And Senator while I absolutely want to get your thoughts about the former president the late President Bush in just a moment. Let's launch into what these lawmakers are. Doing taking the step to keep the government functioning just an extra couple of weeks. But it expires on December twenty first that seems like they risk a shutdown before Christmas. Give me your insight high with hope that the testimonials given to former President George Bush, what sheriff kind of as an inspiration and get both sides to put the Animesh that exist today in the political rhetoric, which is so horrific put it aside and try to emulate the kind of things that he is known for bringing people together, we should not be closing down the government. It would be a tragedy. And I would hope that the president would she's a wisdom of acting more Bush like more compromising. Yes, she wanna chic certain. Things but building the wall. Is not the end all and Beal getting some of reform or the promise of reform on immigration is important. But nothing show important that you would shut down the government create all kinds of chaos, and then the finger pointing continues, and it gets worse. The animist to political atmosphere gets worse. So use this as an opportunity you try to come together. There's nothing worthwhile in bringing about a shutdown of government it wrong. So it now depends upon the leadership in the house and the Senate and real presidential leadership. Sir. We've been asking a lot of our guests if they have any personal remembrances of President Bush at this time, if you have any well, let me say he he's so well known for Desert Storm and he demonstrated. What you do you bring your allies? Together, you go in with L overwhelming force. I was there in Kuwait. When. We we took over the capitol. I flew there at that time. And I wanna tell you there's something he's not giving too much recognition. And that was his victory in Panama knocking out Manuel Noriega again going in with a superior force hitting them hard getting rid of a brutal dictator who is creating tremendous disruption in that area.
