(TheLastPatriotNews.com) – BREAKING NOW: Just moments ago, word broke that United States Senator Robert Menedez, the powerful New Jersey Democrat who is Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, is under federal criminal investigation for corruption.
According to nbcnewyork.com:
“New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez on Wednesday acknowledged the existence of an ongoing federal investigation against him, more than four years after the government dropped a different corruption case.
“Two people familiar with the matter tell NBC News that Menendez is under criminal investigation by the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan. Semafor first reported the news early Wednesday, saying the government was investigating the senator in a probe along the same lines as the last case, but involving different people. The news site also reported that prosecutors have already issued at least one subpoena.” [emphasis added]
Many readers will recall the following about the Senator:
“In 2015, a federal grand jury indicted Menendez on bribery, conspiracy and fraud charges, alleging that he had accepted gifts from a Florida doctor, Salomon Melgen, in exchange for using his office to benefit that doctor’s interests.
“His 2017 trial ended in a hung jury, and in early 2018 the government opted not to retry him after a judge threw out some of the counts in the indictment.” [emphasis added]
It appears that Menedez has remained on the radar of federal law enforcement.
