Why are we paying Booker to represent us in Washington, when he spends the day supporting Menendez in the courtroom in Newark? Disgusting corrupt Democrats having each others back.

The NYT did a profile story a couple days ago on the senator's tribulations and trail.

After the web story release, readers commented on how with all the information being provided to the reader, some how there was on "over-sight" by the writer(s) and the editors identifying what political party the distinguished senator belonged too.

That was corrected later in the online version with an amended 4th paragraph. Not sure how they amended the printed story?

The irony that our Governor may get a chance to appoint a new Senator to replace one on trial for corruption, while he was never charged and was exonerated at every level of phony accusations, is amusing.

Once a corruption fighter, Menendez now set to stand trial on bribery charges

 By -09/06/2017 05:10 AM EDT

As a 20-something political upstart in New Jersey, Robert Menendez sat in a witness box in federal court — so fearful of retribution he wore a bullet-proof vest — and pointed a finger at his political mentor: William V. Musto, the mayor of Union City.

Thirty-five years later, Menendez, now one of the highest-ranking Democrats in Washington, is returning to federal court in the same city in which he became a government witness.

Menendez goes about his business as corruption trial looms next week

08/30/2017 01:51 PM EDT

JERSEY CITY — A week away from opening arguments in his corruption trial, U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez (D-N.J.) said Wednesday he has no intention of cutting a plea deal and renewed his call to recess the proceeding so he can attend important votes in Washington.

Asked whether he had faced pressure from Justice Department prosecutors to plead guilty in exchange for leniency at sentencing, and whether he would consider doing so, Menendez laughed.

Not sure a Christie self appointment could be described as a best case scenario, he would vote against Trump every time. Which might be fun to watch a couple times.

I would pay to see your steel cage match. Since convicted felons like the Torch qualify, let's throw in Kushner Senior to keep conversation lively... could we get Russian judges?

And the democrats kept Frank Lautenberg on life support long enough to hold the other senate seat for Booker... can he rise from the dead again as an very long shot? Doubtful any of the other zombies on the senate floor would notice.

Ha! I like your style. Does Christie have big enough balls to appoint himself to the senate?

This really should be a fun trial to watch.... this new legal definition of "official acts" will be closely watched by all the criminals in the public sector.

What a get "out of jail" free card! I can see all the appeals being filed all over the country while this case is underway.

And with Menendez on the outs with Obama Admin.. let's see if the national media even reports on this case.

From Russia with love: The Menendez trial will rival anything going on in Washington | Mulshine

Let us turn away for a moment from the great show going on in Washington  and look for a moment at a show taking place in Newark.

That's the Bob Menendez show.

 Our senior senator is about to go on trial on corruption charges in a case that has a little bit of everything that makes life in this democracy so fascinating: parties in the tropics, a mysterious and beautiful  Russian woman named Svitlana,  and a big dose of Palm Beach high life.

That life was led by Salomon Melgen, an eye doctor who is truly larger than life.

Unfortunately, the bills he submitted to Medicare were also larger than life.   In April, he was convicted by a jury in Palm Beach on 67 counts stemming from his practice of billing Medicare for as much as $20 million a year for some highly questionable treatments.  

The 67-year-old Melgen is due to be sentenced on Aug. 11 to a prison term that might amount to a life sentence. He could get even more time if he's found guilty in the Sept. 6 trial in Newark, in which he is a co-defendant with the senator.

Remember too, these same guys were also guests, along with Bill Clinton, flying to the DR on Jeffrey Epstein private Lolita Airways.

The underage girl thing was never fully investigated outside of Epstein pleading out to a 2 year sentence for sex trafficking.

Menendez donor, Fla. eye doctor guilty on all counts of Medicare fraud

By The Associated Press
on April 28, 2017 at 3:29 PM, updated April 28, 2017 at 4:35 PM

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -- A prominent Florida eye doctor has been convicted on all counts in his Medicare fraud trial, raising the possibility he could be pressured to testify in the bribery trial of New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez.

Jurors announced their verdict Friday for Dr. Salomon Melgen. He effectively faces a life sentence if no deal is struck. Menendez denies any wrongdoing.

Prosecutors contended that the 62-year-old Melgen stole up to $105 million from the federal insurance program between 2008 and 2013, by giving patients treatments and tests that couldn't help them.

I thought my point was pretty clear! Republicans are treated differently and held to a different standard then Democrats are.

Menendez is complete and total scumbag, and his not being in federal jail on a long sentence is downright pathetic. But, what does have to do with the GWB access road closure? It's a bit of a stretch to claim a bridge was closed, don't you think?

I can only assume you are referring to BM past voting record under Obama. That is what got him in trouble with the WH.

Supreme Court refuses to dismiss Menendez corruption charges

POLITICO - By 03/20/17 10:48 AM EDT

The Supreme Court has rejected Sen. Bob Menendez's attempt to throw out the bribery and corruption charges against him, setting the stage for a trial for the New Jersey Democrat this fall.

With Monday's announcement, Menendez can no longer block the proceedings against him from moving forward, a major setback for his efforts to avoid criminal trial.

Menendez supports Israel and Cuba-American politics because his constituents want him to-this is what Senators are elected to do, and he succeeds in these areas. His dirt bag dealings with the Florida ophthalmologist are what's getting him in trouble, which isn't what he was elected to do in NJ.

Correction:

Less like Borsip and much more like "do-goodie-goodie" bodhipooh.

The latter so obviously a craven sycophant of the corporate media culture and its subservience to Israel, much to the detriment of the American people. (Tee, hee, hee...I get paid!)

Like Borsip, Menendez, is an utter scumbag. Purchased, duped and paid for by the Israel lobby -- Israel first, of course. Although, Menendez, unlike *most* sheeple, is well aware of the treason he has committed. (Pedophilia and all.)

Traitor(s) extraordinaire.

Feds renew contested allegations in Menendez case

By Thomas Moriarty | NJ Advance Media for NJ.com
Email the author
on October 10, 2016 at 4:06 PM, updated October 10, 2016 at 7:30 PM

NEWARK — More than a year after a judge dismissed four counts of bribery in the corruption case against U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez and Florida ophthalmologist Dr. Salomon Melgen, a federal grand jury Thursday renewed the accusations in a superseding indictment.

Menendez, a Democrat from Paramus, was originally indicted in April 2015 along with Melgen, who prosecutors allege gave the senator more than $1 million in gifts and campaign contributions in exchange for Menendez intervening in federal matters involving Melgen.

The bribery charges returned in Thursday's superseding indictment, filed in the U.S. District Court in Newark, concern a $20,000 payment Melgen made to the Fund to Uphold the U.S. Constitution, a trust formed by the senator "to defray the outstanding costs of a politically charged recall effort," according to a motion filed by Menendez's defense team in July 2015.

Sen. Menendez has been busy working since his indictment | Political Insider

By Agustin C. Torres | The Jersey Journal
February 13, 2016 at 7:09 AM

The Hudson County raised and trained Big Bad Bob has been extremely busy. It is almost as if since his indictment on federal corruption charges U.S. Sen. Robert Menendez has kicked his legislative work and senior legislative influence into high gear.

Let's just take a look at the past week as an example. On Monday it was about Flint, Michigan and the lead-laced drinking water in the Wolverine State's city. Menendez and fellow Garden State Sen. Cory Booker, as well as U.S. Rep. Bill Pascrell, Jr. of Paterson, all Democrats, said they will introduce bills in Congress that will call for upgrading the nation's (and that means Jersey too) less than stellar water systems.

"Flint has taught us all that ignoring our aging water infrastructure has dire consequences," said Sen. Menendez. "We've under invested in our infrastructure, certainly we've under invested in water systems, and now we're paying the price ..."

Just put it on the list of the many things that are "under" in the nation.

Doctor in Menendez corruption case to stay in jail

By The Associated Press The Associated Press 
May 08, 2015 at  5:23 PM

WEST PALM BEACH, Fla.  — A Florida doctor charged with corruption alongside New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez has been ordered to remain jailed while awaiting trial for alleged Medicare fraud.

Attorneys for 60-year-old Salomon Melgen said their client posed no risk of fleeing. But U.S. Magistrate Judge James Hopkins sided Friday with prosecutors who said the ophthalmologist's extraordinary wealth gave him a chance to go anywhere in the world, particularly his native Dominican Republic, where he has close ties to government officials.

A 76-count indictment claims Melgen falsely diagnosed patients with eye conditions that allowed him to perform unnecessary and costly procedures. He has pleaded not guilty to those charges, as well as those in the separate New Jersey case, in which he's accused of swapping donations and vacations for favors from Menendez.
