    Menendez trial

    If an illegal email server doesn't get you criminally charged, why should this be a big deal?

    The first U.S. senator to face bribery charges in nearly four decades goes on trial Wednesday in a case that could affect the Senate's partisan makeup and the fate of President Donald Trump's legislative agenda.

    Robert Menendez, a Democrat in his 12th year as a senator from New Jersey, is charged with using his influence to do favors for a Florida eye doctor accused of overbilling Medicare. In return, prosecutors say, the doctor treated Menendez to "a lavish lifestyle that included private jet rides and vacations in Paris and the Caribbean."

    Monello thinks he is king of the forum, now. Just keep that in mind.
    What bad thing did you do?

    That must have been some overbilling if an eye doctor can afford to keep a Senator as an expensive pet.

    There has to be more to this story, as in Menendez crossed the wrong person and they're going after him in retaliation. With all the lobbyist corruption that goes on with our Congresscritters, why all of a sudden are they all freaked out over this eye doctor?

    he was convicted for bilking Medicare out of an estimated $105 million.

    It, absolutely, floors me what the Clintons did with no repercussions. There is no wondering. Our gov is corrupt. No matter how he tries, Trump will not be able to fix it; unless he gets an additional 4 years. Then, there may be 'hope for change'.
