Skip to comments.Fetterman demands Sen. Menendez to be expelled from Senate on ‘The View’: ‘Senator for Egypt not New Jersey’

Sen. John Fetterman, D-Penn., said Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., needs to be expelled from the U.S. Senate, quipping that he’s more of a "Senator from Egypt, not New Jersey," on Friday on ABC’s "The View."
The freshman lawmaker from Pennsylvania made the claim in the context of the recent expulsion of Rep. George Santos, D-N.Y., from the House of Representatives, noting that if Santos deserves to be kicked out of Congress, then Menendez does, too, after being federally charged for participating in a bribery scheme.
Co-host Joy Behar prompted Fetterman’s take-down of Menendez by bringing up Santos’ ouster, which happened within hours of the episode airing.
She stated, "You might have heard that Congress just expelled George Santos."
"Yeah, yeah, Santos," Fetterman replied.
"And you’ve also been calling for – to get rid of Menendez, I know. But first, before we talk about that, what’s your reaction to the expulsion?" Behar asked.
"Well, I’m not surprised," Fetterman replied.
Santos was expelled by Congress in a 311 to 114 vote on the House floor Friday morning. The embattled lawmaker has been indicted on 23 counts related to wire fraud, identity theft, falsification of records, credit card fraud, and other charges. He's been accused of using campaign funds on a number of luxury goods and treatments such as botox. He has pleaded not guilty.
However, Fetterman quickly turned his attention to Menendez, stating, "But to me, I think the more important picture is that we have a colleague in the Senate that has actually did more sinister and serious kinds of things. Senator Menendez. He needs to go!"

The only thing the democrats have going for them is macabre comedy.
Can’t believe I’m starting to like this guy.
Santos is a Republican. First (R) ever to get expelled from the House. There were five prior, presumably Democrats or other.
Mr. Menendez still not convicted but the Democrats want him gone.
Due Process ignored here just like with Santos being ousted before there was even a conviction.
You should ask yourself who else they will indict in a federal court and expel from Congress in the months ahead before they get their day in court.
Maybe a member of Congress we all support here on FR.
He’s one of us.
Somebody in the Dem party has convinced Fetterman to play this role, as Hit Man against another Dem.
It would be interesting to know what he (Fetterman) expects to gain from it.
Just as it was wrong to expel Santos, it’s wrong to expel Menendez.
That’s the voters’ job.
Selective cognition when it comes to Biden, Inc.
Due process is a legal term, not required in Congress. Congress sets their own rules, and protects who they want, as all know.
Fetterman sometimes says reasonable things. He’s right about removing Menendez even though I believe an elected official should be removed only after conviction, that is if that is by law disqualifying.
How about BOTH Menendez AND Fetterman get expelled? Or, maybe Fetterman can lead by example and resign.
Anyone really believe that after his stroke, he got that Abby Normal brain updated to 3.0?
(Anyone really believe)…Those that believe/tell us that POTUS Potato is running the country.
I tried to tell you fools Fetterman was not the clod the right wing media tries to make him out to be… of course his Stroke does not help things but that turd OZ never stood a chance against him. Had he actually been healthy OZ would have lost by 8-11 points.
I don’t agree with his political views but he is not the clod that the flappy headed right wing pundits tried to sell to their lemmings.
McConnell burned more than 100,000,000 dollars trying to sell the turd OZ as a winner and cost countless winnable races with sheer stupidity
This is rich. Frankenfeldman should be next.
Wait. Wrong guy. Fetterman, not Feldman. 🙄
The constitution declares what it takes to expel…
A conviction is not part of those requirements, never was.
Those wanting to fall on their sword to keep the POS Santos in office they are POS as well as far as I’m concerned.
No, just because you have an R beside your name doesn’t give you a pass… not playing that single digit IQ nonsense.
He speaks normally in the video. Amazing when all that you’ve seen before is his stroke affected speech pattern.
