A New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez is facing some serious accusations. It appears that Senator violated the law in different ways, and now he is under investigation for corruption. He even tried to hide all these facts, but a hand of justice catching up him quickly.
According to Politico, Senator Menendez demanded from the Supreme Court to reject charges for corruption and bribery. Unfortunately for him, the Supreme Court refused to do that. Now, he’s waiting for a trial. From his office, there were no official remarks on a Court’s decision.
Senator Bob Menendez
In December, last year, Senator’s attorneys filed an appeal under the excuse that the Justice Department violated constitutional rights of Senator Menendez under the Speech or Debate clause.This clause is famous for protecting lawmakers and associates from any lawful activity only if their actions are legal.
All things considered, the Third Circuit Court of Appeals rejected Menendez’s appeal. Senator Menendez was also known for his past corruption affairs. He was getting gifts and benefits from Dr. Salomon Melgen for his favors. Apparently, the favors were enormous.
Federal prosecutors alleged Menendez for helping Melgen to resolve a billing over some Medicare accusations, to maintain a $500 million port-security contract with the Dominican Republic and to get American visas for Melgen’s girlfriends.
As we can see, this scandal continues to grow and also it includes other Democrats.
The Health and Human Service Secretary Kathleen Sebelius and the acting head of the Center for Medicare Services Marilyn Tavenner met with Menendez in 2012 in Harry Reid office. Kathleen said that they spoke about quarrel amongst Melgen and CMS, on the grounds that CMS expressed that Melgen had overbilled the administration for more than million dollars, which, obviously, was denied by Melgen.
Democrats attempt to shift attention from their corrupt actions, and they are doing that by making up false information about Donald Trump’s associates, while on the other hand, real guilty parties are themselves. We are putting great hopes in Justice Services of America, that they will give their best so we could see who are the real lawbreakers.
