Top Dem Under Federal Investigation Again

Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is under federal investigation again, according to a report.

Kadia Goba of the new digital media outlet Semafor reported that Southern District of New York prosecutors are investigating Melendez and “have sent at least one subpoena in the case.”

The prosecutor’s investigation reportedly stems from facts similar to a 2015 U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) case against Menendez and Democrat donor Salomon Melgen for conspiracy and bribery. Federal prosecutors ultimately dropped those charges against Menendez and Melgen.

As Goba explained, “it’s notable to see the Department of Justice return to Menendez after its humiliating public failure to convict him.”

Goba reported:

Menendez and a Florida eye doctor, Salomon Melgen, were indicted in 2015 for an alleged arrangement under which the doctor provided flights on a private jet and lavish vacations in exchange for the senator’s help with government contracts and other public favors. Menendez’s lawyers argued that the two men were simply good friends. The inquiry ended in a mistrial in 2017 after the jury failed to reach a verdict. (Melgen was convicted in 2017 of medicare fraud, and received clemency from President Donald Trump in 2021.)

The two people familiar with the investigation, one who is directly connected to the investigation and the other a New Jersey lawyer who has been told of the case, said that the broad outlines of the new inquiry are similar to the 2017 case. Both said that the new investigation involves an entirely different group of people, however.

Menendez’s office confirmed the senator is aware of the new investigation.

Menendez adviser Michale Soliman told Semafor:

Senator Menendez is aware of an investigation that was reported on today, however he does not know the scope of the investigation. As always, should any official inquiries be made, the Senator is available to provide any assistance that is requested of him or his office.

The Democrat senator is no stranger to being investigated by federal authorities. Nearly a decade ago, Breitbart News’s Matthew Boyle, who then worked for The Daily Caller, broke a story that Menendez solicited underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic.

“Presented with specific, corroborated allegations that defendants Menendez and Melgen had sex with underage prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, the Government responsibly and dutifully investigated those serious allegations,” the DOJ wrote in a 2015 filing.

Menendez has represented New Jersey in the U.S. Senate since his appointment to fill a vacancy in 2005. He will be up for reelection in 2024.

  1. We’re waiting for this man’s verdict kick out him soon as possible is not the first offensive got to be done right now !

  2. The key word in this article is democrat Senator. That title before Menendez’s name means he immediately is granted the Democratic Communist Party’s two tiered Justice system, where democratic politicians are never held accountable for any crime or corruption they commit!

    Now, if he was a conservative, he would be forced to step down from office and the radical democrats would demand that the conservative prove his innocence! Just like they did with Justice Kavanaugh. It doesn’t matter that our country’s law states you’re innocent until proven guilty, where the burden of proof is placed with the prosecutor. In case you haven’t figured it out yet, radical democrats could care less about law and order.

  3. The prosecutor’s investigation reportedly stems from facts similar to a 2015 U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ) case against Menendez and Democrat donor Salomon Melgen for conspiracy and bribery. Federal prosecutors ultimately dropped those charges against Menendez and Melgen.

    He should be impeached, tried and sentenced to prion for life at hard labor, All of the lying communist democrats should be done the same
