Joaquin Guzman, aka El Chapo, looks headed to the United States at some point to face a mountain of charges all related to his cutthroat drug trafficking enterprise. The U.S. wants him, Mexico wants to send him, but El Chapo does have his legal rights to fight extradition, so it may take a little time. Meanwhile, none other than Sean Penn had reportedly been in touch with Guzman, leading up to an exclusive interview with Rolling Stone. Mexican authorities are saying it was that meeting that led them to find where Guzman was hiding. Penn hasn’t commented on the interview, or how he inadvertently appears to have been responsible for the capture of the drug lord.

The Powerball jackpot for Saturday’s drawing has hit $700 million dollars the largest jackpot in U.S. history. And players are going crazy for tickets. Lines have been forming at gas stations and convenience stores. Store workers say the lines tend to build during the morning commute, but they expect lines to be very long Friday afternoon, due in large part to it being pay day for many Americans.

There has been a lot of discussion this week regarding President Obama’s offensive on gun control, and his move with executive actions, albeit varying opinions on exactly how much impact those executive actions will have. Thursday night on CNN, the president made his case in a town hall setting. The NRA declined to participate, calling it a public relations spectacle orchestrated by the White House. And there has been criticism that the audience at the George Mason University event was “invitation only.” Nonetheless, get the recap this morning. And late tonight, a senior adviser to Carson confirms to ABC News that House conservatives reached out to Carson in 2014 about the possibility of replacing John Boehner. Carson turned down the offer because he was gearing up his run for president.
