Skip to comments.Sen. Bob Menendez under federal investigation – again
Posted on 10/26/2022 11:42:16 AM PDT by ChicagoConservative27
The feds are taking a second look at Sen. Robert “Bob” Menendez (D-NJ) five years after an initial corruption investigation ended in a mistrial.
Michael Soliman, an adviser to the powerful chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told The Post Wednesday that Menendez “is aware of an investigation,” but “does not know the scope.”
“As always, should any official inquiries be made, the Senator is available to provide any assistance that is requested of him or his office,” he added.
The investigation was first reported by Semafor. According to the outlet, Manhattan federal prosecutors have contacted people connected to Menendez and sent at least one subpoena in the case.
Menendez, 68, was indicted in 2015 after prosecutors from the Justice Department’s Public Integrity Unit accused him of accepting lavish bribes from Palm Beach ophthalmologist Dr. Salomon Melgen.

The feds are investigating him for not bribing ENOUGH.
The Old Bandito Rides Again!
The Old Bandito Rides Again!
Must be something to this for the corrupt feds to dredge this up again.
Menendez is one of their own.
So nice for the Public Integrity Unit to get right on that and circle back and all those other cliche phrases they use.
He will get acquitted again.
Then the Feds can claim they are fair because they pursue Democrats as well
The demonrats are the party of con artists and criminals, I’m not surprised menendez is under investigation.
It would be news if Menendez was NOT under investigation.
Another poster boy for repealing the 17th Amendment!
Though New Jersey is the one state legislature that probably could appoint a more corrupt senator then the one they currently have! Still ...
Repeal the 17th Amendment!
Usually what this means is that Bob isn’t being a good little boy in the caucus room for whatever the Uniparty wants to do. So some outside pressure is being applied.
Jersey....Where the former Governor stole millions from an investment fund and walked away with it, IIRC.
Have to wonder if his name is in Maxwell’s book.
Too bad the Dems stole the Gov. race or we might’ve gotten a Repub senator from NJ when this POS is forced out of office or resigns.
We know what’s going on here.
DOJ is tired of being accused of being BIASED.
SO, OOOO, LET’S PULL AN OLD CHESTNUT OUR OF THE DUST BIN...HOW ABOUT MENENDEZ, HE’S A NOBODY...YEAH, YEAH LET’S PRETEND WE ARE “INVESTIGATING” MENENDEZ....
And now, we cannot accuse them of bias. COOL
Merrick Garland is investigating him? Oh boy! I beat Bob’s really scared this time! /NOT
Isn’t he the old coot hitting on a bikini beach babe during a Rat get away? Asking for a friend.
One way or another Bob is going to fill his pockets.
And nothing will come of it....again
His daughter is kinda hot
Agree. Repeal of the 17th is fundamental to the restoration of free government.
