Democrat Senator indicted for bribery, fraud and extortion


Democrat Senator Bob Menendez was just indicted by a federal grand jury on bribery, fraud and extortion charges.

His wife is also named. Feds found over $480,000 in cash stuffed into clothes and closets, gold bars and a luxury car that were part of their alleged bribery scheme.

Fox News has more:

“A press event will be held today at 11:00 a.m. to announce the unsealing of an indictment charging Robert Menendez, U.S. Senator from New Jersey, and his wife, Nadine Menendez, with bribery offenses in connection with their corrupt relationship with three New Jersey businessmen,” the U.S. attorney’s office posted on X. 

NBC News 4 reported Monday that the FBI and IRS criminal investigators are attempting to determine if Menendez or his wife had taken up to $400,000 worth of gold bars from Fred Daibes, a New Jersey developer and former bank chairman, or his associates in a swap for Menendez reaching out to the Justice Department to aid the “admitted felon” accused of banking crimes.
