    Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) and his wife Nadine were charged Tuesday with lying to federal investigators in a new, expanded indictment accusing them of accepting gold bars and cash to dole out favors to local businessmen and foreign governments. Both Menendez, 70, and Nadine were charged with new obstruction of justice and additional bribery counts in the fourth version of an indictment unsealed by federal prosecutors in Manhattan. The married couple, alongside co-defendants Wael Hana and Fred Daibes, now faces 18 counts — 16 of which involve the senator — as part of a “corrupt relationship” to benefit the New...

    An emotional Sen. Bob Menendez took to the floor of the upper chamber on Tuesday to denounce what he called his “persecution” by the Justice Department following new bribery allegations tying him to a Qatar-based real estate investment firm linked to that country’s royal family. “The United States Attorney’s Office has engaged not in a prosecution, but a persecution. They seek a victory, but not justice,” Menendez (D-NJ) declared of his second superseding indictment in the Southern District of New York. “By filing three indictments — one in late September, a second one a few weeks later in mid-October and...

    I’m not sure exactly when it happened. Senator John Fetterman (D-PA) is making a lot of people who were formerly critical of him suddenly find themselves in agreement with him. That includes me. No one is more astounded than me. When John Fetterman was elected, I thought he was a far-left progressive married to an illegal immigrant. He was. Then he had a massive stroke. As he recovered, he continued to run for the Senate. He campaigned from his basement and his wife ran interference for him. She misled everyone into believing that he was fine and would be ready...

    Several gold bars discovered by federal agents in Democratic New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez's residence as part of a high-profile bribery investigation can be traced to a violent robbery a decade ago. According to a sprawling indictment unsealed by federal prosecutors in September, Menendez and his wife allegedly played a role in a years-long bribery scheme that involved the Egyptian government and local businessmen including Fred Daibes, a wealthy New Jersey real estate developer. Prosecutors revealed they retrieved multiple gold bars from Menendez's home which were allegedly used as payment in the scheme. At least four of the gold bars...

    A businessman told police that he was the victim of a robbery in 2013 and asked them to recover the 22 stolen gold bars. Four bars were found a decade later in Menendez's home. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ At least four gold bars found in the FBI search of Sen. Bob Menendez’s home had been directly linked to a New Jersey businessman now accused of bribing Menendez, the state’s senior senator, Bergen County prosecutor’s records from a 2013 robbery case show. The businessman, Fred Daibes, reported to police that he was the victim of an armed robbery in 2013, and he asked police...

    With Christmas fast approaching, Sen. John Fetterman decided to surprise his embattled colleague Bob Menendez with a little gift from a familiar face. Fetterman (D-Pa.) sent Menendez (D-NJ) a Cameo from lying former Long Island Rep. George Santos (R-NY) in a backhanded bid to lift his spirits. “Hey Bobby, look, I don’t think I need to tell you, but these people that want to make you get in trouble and want to kick you out and make you run away — you make them put up or shut up,” a smiling and gleeful-sounding Santos said in his Cameo. “You stand...

    In a compelling development stemming from an FBI raid conducted last year, a portion of the gold bars found in the residence of embattled Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) have been identified as those stolen in a high-profile 2013 robbery. In September, Sen. Bob Menendez, the senior U.S. Senator from New Jersey and the former Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, and his wife, Nadine Menendez, were indicted on bribery and corruption charges. In October, Bob Menendez was charged with acting as a foreign agent in a superseding indictment. Bob Menendez and his wife are under investigation for their involvement...
  • 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...

    The Justice Department this week hit Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) with a superseding indictment including a new but all-too-familiar charge: being an unregistered foreign agent under the Foreign Agents Registration Act (FARA). I cannot recall another sitting member of Congress being criminally charged as a foreign agent. Yet even if this is the first such case, the charge has been freely used by the Justice Department in all but one case: Hunter Biden. The indictment accuses Menendez of being a foreign agent on behalf of Egypt. Also charged under the law is Menendez’s wife, Nadine, and Egyptian American businessman Wael...

    Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., was charged with conspiracy to act as a foreign agent on behalf of the Egyptian government. His wife, Nadine Menendez, as well as Egyptian American businessman Wael Hana were also charged with conspiracy to act as a foreign agent, according to a superseding indictment filed Thursday in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of New York. The latest indictment follows the not-guilty pleas that Bob and Nadine Menendez entered last month to charges that included bribery and exportation. Hana also pleaded not guilty last month, as did two other businessmen charged in the scandal:...

    A 5-year-old deadly car crash is getting renewed attention because the driver is now the wife of U.S. Senator Bob Menendez, both of whom are facing federal charges alleging they took bribes. The crash happened in December of 2018, before they were married. Nadine Menendez was driving her Mercedes-Benz in Bogota, New Jersey, when she struck and killed a pedestrian. Police dash cam video shows her interaction with officers after the crash. "If we can clear you from any wrongdoing, I want to get you home and comfortable and not here anymore, you know what I'm saying," a Bogota police...

    During an appearance on Thursday’s broadcast of FNC’s “Fox & Friends,” former Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ), a candidate for the 2024 GOP presidential nomination, blamed “awfully pathetic” President Joe Biden for the lack of support for U.S. involvement in Ukraine. According to the former Republican New Jersey governor, helping Ukraine is helping us. “It’s awfully pathetic,” he said. “And the reason why that there’s not even more universal support among the American people is we have a pathetic president of the United States who will not make the case for Ukraine because he can’t. Not because the facts aren’t there...

    Philadelphia suffered its second night in a row of mass looting incidents and destructive social media-fueled mayhem on Wednesday, resulting in more than 50 arrests, police said. On Wednesday, groups of thieves, apparently working together, destroyed property in several areas of the city, smashed their way into stores, and stole as much as they could before fleeing, authorities said. Suspects also ransacked more than a dozen state-run liquor stores so thoroughly that the state announced it was closing its Philly locations until further notice. Video on social media also suggested that culprits made off with a Wells Fargo ATM, but...

    The great sartorial scandal over John Fetterman's signature hoodie-and-shorts has now come to a close after the Senate unanimously passed a resolution enacting a formal dress code. The resolution, brought forth by fellow Democrat Sen. Joe Manchin, W. Va., passed without a formal vote by unanimous consent and clarified that the Senate floor would have a formal dress code. Hours earlier, Fetterman had already announced he would wear a suit and tie while speaking or presiding over the Senate floor. Fetterman, like others, could still wear his trademark garb and vote from the cloak room on the edge of the...

    The shorts were short-lived. The Senate on Wednesday unanimously passed a bill that requires members to follow a dress code that will include a coat, tie, and slacks for men, ending controversy triggered over Pennsylvania Sen. John Fetterman displaying his casual style on the floor. “Though we’ve never had an official dress code, the events over the past week have made us all feel as though formalizing one is the right path forward,” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said in a statement. “I deeply appreciate Senator Fetterman working with me to come to an agreement that we all find acceptable,...
