Democrats Have a Corruption Problem
Phil Kerpen | Mar 13, 2015
Senator Bob Menendez will soon be indicted on corruption and obstruction of justice charges stemming from his relationship with Salomon Melgen, a West Palm Beach eye doctor.
Melgen thought he could get away with Medicare fraud because he gave Senate Democratic Leader Harry Reid's Super PAC $700,000 and lavished Menendez with private jet flights to his luxury resort.
Given the known public facts, Harry Reid should return Melgen's money to the taxpayers he stole it from and should ask Menendez to resign.
But wait! Here is a somewhat strange and different opinion:
Breitbart News reports that DOJ prosecutors have not yet requested a hearing over attempts to compel two staffers for embattled New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez to testify before a federal grand jury that’s investigating corruption charges against the Senator. The story by Michael Patrick Leahy, over a seemingly minor procedural motion, calls into question how seriously DOJ is treating the investigation.
The failure of DOJ lawyers to request a hearing, in fact, suggests the possible prosecution of Menendez is more about generating damaging headlines for the Senator than putting an allegedly corrupt politician behind bars.
JG: We will send you TWO $19.95 reports for the price of one. Do not pass up this great BOGO opportunity!
Will Robert Menendez do time in prison? Or will money (Dollars & Euros) change hands under the table?
