PJMedia, along with others is reporting that Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) has been indicted on federal bribery charges.
According to a report from NBC News, Sen. Menendez and his wife received $400,000 in gold bars from Fred Daibes, a New Jersey developer, in exchange for the senator interfering with a Justice Department investigation of Daibes when he was facing federal bank fraud charges.
I take no pleasure in reporting this, and the senator is certainly entitled to the presumption of innocence. But I am reminded that Mark Twain said:
There is no distinctly American criminal class - except Congress
It's interesting. The article says that Menendez has been under investigation since October, 2022. That is just one year. I didn't think that the FBI could conduct a whole investigation in a single year. I mean, they did let Hunter's charges lapse due to the statute of limitations.
