    But Will He Go To JAIL

    First on CNN: Feds prepare criminal corruption charges against Senator Bob Menendez



    Washington (CNN)The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption charges against New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, a Democrat, alleging he used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts.

    People briefed on the case say Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on prosecutors' request to proceed with charges, CNN has learned exclusively. An announcement could come within weeks. Prosecutors are under pressure in part because of the statute of limitation on some of the allegations.

    The case could pose a high-profile test of the Justice Department's ability to prosecute sitting lawmakers, having already spawned a legal battle over whether key evidence the government has gathered is protected by the Constitution's Speech and Debate clause.

    Investigators have focused in part on plane trips Menendez took in 2010 to the Dominican Republic as a guest of Melgen. In 2013, after word of the federal investigation became public, Menendez paid back Melgen $58,000 for the 2010 plane trips calling his failure to properly disclose the flights an "oversight."








    I sure, it was just a paperwork error
    Weíre tempted to suggest a conspiracy here ó but itís just liberals agreeing yet again that conservatives have hidden, evil motives, because modern liberals simply canít conceive of any other reason to disagree with the liberal consensus.

    That'll do it alright. Hope the Senator has people on the outside who'll fund his commissary and come visit.

    REPORT: Dem Senator Bob Menendez Used Influence To Help Donor Pal Get Visas For Model Girlfriends


    An indictment against Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) accuses the New Jersey Democrat of using his influence in the federal government to pressure the state department into issuing visas for a donor's foreign girlfriends, in exchange for more than a million dollars in campaign contributions.

    According to the charging documents, unsealed and obtained by the New York Post, Menendez is facing eight counts of bribery — with each count carrying a possible 15-year federal prison sentence. And he did it all for a bevvy of hot chicks (allegedly, anyway).

    The indictment lays out the relationship between Menendez and Miami eye doctor Dr. Salomon Melgen, and how the two apparently conspired to bring three of Melgen's model girlfriends to the United States, using Menendez's pull with the State Department. According to the Post, Menendez went to bat for three of Melgen's beauties: an adult model-turned-lawyer from Brazil, a Ukranian actress living in Spain, and a 22-year-old woman from the Dominican Republic.

    In each case, Melgen contacted Menendez's office complaining that one of his many lovely ladies had run into an "immigration problem" and required the senator's help to move the process along. In the case of the Brazilian model, Menedez had a senior staffer write to the State Department urging them to approve her visa application. Around the same time, Menendez also advocated for the Ukranian actress, allegedly telling the State Department that she was a friend and that she intended to visit Miami (where Melgen lived) for a "plastic surgery evaluation."

    Sounds like something any Senator would do.
    Favors for constituents.

    However accepting money for it could possibly be called taking bribes.
    But I suspect a lot of them use favors for campaign funds in return.,
    Half the Senate ----more than likely.

    BIAS: New York Times Runs 1,300-Word Story On Corrupt Democratic Senator. They Somehow Forget To Mention He's A Democrat.


    In a stupefying turn of events, The New York Times ran a lengthy, 1,300 word article about a New Jersey senator who is facing a federal bribery trial, yet forgot to mention one small word among the 1,300 it doled out: Democrat.


    Caught with its pants down, the Times decided to finally report that small bit of information: [screen cap at link]

    I could be wrong but I don't think Miami is in NJ, so I doubt this doc is a constituent.
