Emails show FBI investigating Sen. Bob Menendez for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes
The Daily Caller ^ | January 25, 2013 | David Martosko, executive editor

Posted on 01/25/2013 12:32:40 AM PST by 2ndDivisionVet

Documents published online for the first time Thursday indicate that the FBI opened an inquiry into New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez on August 1, 2012, focusing on repeated trips he took to the Dominican Republic with longtime campaign contributor and Miami eye doctor Salomon Melgen. TheDC reported in November that Menendez purchased the service of prostitutes in that Caribbean nation at a series of alcohol-fueled sex parties.

The documents, which The Daily Caller had obtained hours earlier from an anonymous source, also indicate that Carrie Levine, research director at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), was alerted on April 9, 2012 to Menendez’s habit of paying for sex while outside the United States.

ABC News senior investigative producer Rhonda Schwartz was aware as early as May 2, 2012, the documents show, when Levine wrote a source in the Dominican Republic to say that she had “shared your allegations, but not your identities, with a respected, trusted journalist with whom we have worked on other stories.”

In another email two days later, Levine identified that journalist as one who “works for ABC News.” By May 16, Schwartz was emailing Levine’s original source with questions...

New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez is leading a highly-charged hearing this morning in which Secretary of State Hillary Clinton will testify about the terrorist attacks in Benghazi, providing a preview of what will likely be a new, powerful role for Menendez.

Menendez, who is Cuban American, is the first Latino elected to the U.S. House and Senate from New Jersey and would become the first Latino chair of the Foreign Relations Committee. His rise to the top of a panel with broad authority to oversee U.S. foreign policy will mean new attention to relations with Central and South America, normally a diplomatic backwater.

Bob "Tattoo" Menendez is an anti-White racist. He also used the race card against a Bush judicial nominee saying the guy wasn't Latino enough or something along those lines.

Those women who allowed this ugly hobbit to violate them earned every cent.

Criminality is a resume enhancement for Democrats. They just love the ‘I am so sorry’ confessional. I wish those politicians who live a good, clean and truthful lifestyle would get as much fawning as the fallen do.

Oh, come on -- you're looking at this all wrong! The feds can't charge Menendez with anything, and nobody can lay any sort of morals beef against him -- he's from New Jersey, and he's a Democrat!!

Sheesh. Some people!

"for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes"

So that's what Pedophilia is called when a democrat Senator is found to have had sex with children.

You bet! It makes their doper-looter voters feel superior to somebody, and they tend to reward that behavior at election time. Plus, the money and free stuff doesn't hurt.

He’s a democrat from New Jersey. The only qualification to get elected in New Jersey is “democrat.” The only main disqualification is “Republican,” Anything else is just incidental stuff. And if you l.ok at the fat SOS that’s the governor of NJ, you will see a democrat that calls himself a republican.

Senator Menendez is one of the turd-blossoms who sponsored Senate Resolution 511 deeming Senator McCain a “Natural Born Citizen.”

Senate Resolutions do not trump the Constitution. McCain WAS born outside the US jurisdiction in a civilian hospital in Colon, Panama.

For the those who are naysayers to that fact, please read the record before you “flame away.” I know... NTSA (”Not This Shit Again).

ABC will not release anything that might hurt the democrats, that in it self is a good story with proof that is usefull to use.

There have to be some pictures out there of Bob with his children / girl friend’s, the term pedophilia is commonly used to refer to any sexual interest in minors below the legal age of consent. 16 is below the age of consent.

Bob fits the term of a child molester, apparently has some mental disabilities, and should be a registered sex offender.

And don’t forget GOP hero Chris Christie has been hugging Menendez as much as he did Obama.

Way to go Chris “we can’t put guards in schools” Christie. But we can teach our kids it’s ok to be a drunk lech who molests and rapes third world minority kids.

You are correct....McCain was not eligible as he was born in a civilian hospital in Panama...on Panamanian territory. A Senate Resolution is not law....and does not trump the US Constitution or even judicial legal precedent.

Now, I wonder if Menendez promised any Dominicana Ninas for McAmnesty?

So true what you said. The Democrats turn out one sleaze ball after another and the media turns a blind eye to it. Compare that to the way they treated Mitt Romney. No doubt the man is a straight arrow in his personal life and no one has ever accused him of any infidelity but after this election he was turned into a dog-killing, gay-bashing, greedy and heartless murderer by the Dems and the media. Sadly, it was extremely effective as we saw. We live in a sorry time where everything bad is deemed good and everything good is deemed bad.

Nothing to see here, because he’s a ‘Rat.

Kind of like how Pwned USSC Justice Roberts was “investigated” almost ten years ago for his shady South American adoptions and then he “changed his mind” to support HusseinCare.

Is there a Mrs. Menendez?

There was. My wife had her as a teacher at Emerson High School in Union City. Mrs. Frogjerk says she was a really nice woman and a good teacher.

Bob Menendez is scum for divorcing her and having a piece of tail in DC when he because to big for Union City. He was a lousy scum sucking mayor of that city as well. His district when congressman in NJ-13 is one of the most gerrymandered you can think of. Non-contiguous like hell just to get all of the Spanish vote.

What ..... no inevitable joke yet about "Foreign Relations"?

Menendez better watch it -- Slick Willie will crash his next party. "Did somebody say, Dominican prostitutes?"

I noticed that too..

""for sleeping with underage Dominican prostitutes""

Does anyone think the 'source at ABC' would be silent if it was a Republican? or that they would call it 'sleeping with'. I don't think he was doing much sleeping.

I bet the FIRST question, when told about this story was "is it a Democrat or Republican". And since the answer was D the next question was "can this wait until after November?"

Not me. I was just thinking that if it had been a Republican, it'd have been blown wide open at the first inkling of it.

Then he'd have been presumed guilty until proved innocent. His political career would have been over even if it had only been a rumor.

How dare you call that “fat SOS that’s the governor of NJ”, “a DemocRat that calls himself republican.” It’s as plain as the nose on his face that he firstly and foremost a Progressive and such cancerous lumps dominate BOTH parties. If the Republicans want to reshape their image, they need to purge the Progressives, starting with McCain, McConnell, Graham, and Gen. Powell. Have a news conference and simply state that the party has decided to have the courage to do want these Progressives not do and revoke their RNC membership, get a court injunction against them for using the term Republican to identify themselves or their campaigns, and offer to send a donation for membership to the DNC.

The headline continues the lie. He didn’t “sleep” with them. He’s a pig and how much do you want to bet the investigation goes no where. Menendez is a fake and so is his “aggressive” stance against Hilary.
