Bob Menendez and His Wife Indicted on Corruption Charges

Definitely what I'd call "a Biden Democrat."

Senator Robert Menendez (D., N.J.), the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, was indicted on corruption charges by federal prosecutors on Friday morning in a Manhattan court in an influence-peddling scheme involving Egypt.

Wait, the bribe scheme involves a foreign country that wants favors from the State Department?!

Ooooh, a very Biden Democrat!


The unsealed indictment revealed that Menendez's wife, Nadine, New Jersey real estate mogul Fred Daibes, and two other business associates are being charged along side the lawmaker.

Led by Southern District of New York attorney Damian Williams, in June 2022, investigators conducted a search of Menendez's residence in New Jersey and found $100,000 worth of gold bars, nearly half a million dollars in cash, "much of it stuffed into envelopes and hidden in clothing, closets, and a safe," and a brand new Mercedes-Benz C-300 convertible.

Kind of like the brand-new $130,000 Porsche that a foreign entity bought for Hunter Biden?


"Menedez and Nadine Menedez agreed to and did accept hundreds of thousands of dollars of bribes in exchange for using Menedez's power and influence as a Senator to seek to protect and enrich" his allies "and to benefit the Arab Republic of Egypt," the indictment reads. "Among other actions, Menendez provided sensitive U.S. government information and took other steps that secretly aided the Government of Egypt," the filing notes.


The DOJ press briefing is below.

I hope that Menendez mounts a defense of "they gave that to my wife, not to me," so that the DOJ is forced to educate the public that the law of extortion (bribery) makes it explicit that the bribe does not have to be directly given to the politician being bribed, but can also be given to a family member for the crime to have occurred.

I dearly want the public to be educated on this favorite White House talking point.

Because this is so dangerous for Joe Biden, Menendez is going to be pressured to plead guilty -- in exchange for the famous Corrupt Democrat Politician Slap-on-the-Wrist -- and resign his seat so that the Democrat governor can replace him.

The Democrat Party needs this story to go away.

33 Last time Bob was indicted it was when he was pushing against Obama's Iran deal, coincidentally his indictment now comes right after Obama's newest Iran deal, yeah that tracks.

I don't doubt he's guilty, but it's just more selective prosecution.

Not that it matters, they know his seat is safe for some Dem activist R-Tard to take over. He'll his moron son won as a congressman here just last year.

Sadly with the swing more and more to the left with Dems, Menendez was probably ther best option, as they'll put in a full blown communist now. The only better hope would be Brian Stack, who's from Menendez's area and is pretty moderate.

I was reading about Penny Pritzker and learned that her (and JB's) family wealth came from Hyatt hotels. That made me remember Leona Helmsley and her tax troubles... and the thought occurred to me that Leona was probably set up. Not sure why - it was a long time ago - but the scales have fallen from my eyes.

As noted in previous threads....

1. O'l Bob is not really subtle in his corruption and this was brazen enough that it could not be overlooked.

2. He's pro Israel and against the Iran Deal, so that rubs the Obama wing the wrong way.

3. More than likely some NJ pol wants to level up and Bob is in the way and it's just a Game of Thrones play.

There could be more, there could be less, but that's enough for The Junta.

91 I really had to trace my steps carefully while using a Stealth Boy, avoiding Elijah's stern glare, to sneak around encumbered with the 37 gold bars from the Sierra Madre's vault and get out without triggering a firefight...

I did not convert those gold bars to bottle caps though, would be a waste. The best place for them is the safe in your personal room at Big MT.

114 I hope that Menendez mounts a defense of "they gave that to my wife, not to me," so that the DOJ is forced to educate the public that the law of extortion (bribery) makes it explicit that the bribe does not have to be directly given to the politician being bribed, but can also be given to a family member for the crime to have occurred.

I dearly want the public to be educated on this favorite White House talking point.

Because this is so dangerous for Joe Biden, Menendez is going to be pressured to plead guilty -- in exchange for the famous Corrupt Democrat Politician Slap-on-the-Wrist -- and resign his seat so that the Democrat governor can replace him.

Someone who, even if they haven't already been compromised, must begin to question if the media will report any of the information you might release or if you too will just be quietly murdered.

Maybe he can resign in shame when Clarence Thomas resigns in shame.

Makes me wonder if the feds are working on a case against Thomas? Hard to believe he hasn't taken "gifts" from the wealthy besides lodging and transportation. He should have already been indicted for lieing on his forms, which is a felony.

This gives Dems the chance to show the public what "justice matters" means, even when it hurts. I hope it doesn't affect his daughter's career Alicia is a top-flight journalist.

Exactly! Democrats virtually forced Franken to resign for far more tenuous reasons, similar happened regarding Gov. Cuomo in NY, although in that case the concerns were much more substantive than with Franken.

Five Facts and Five Fictions About CIA Rendition (In part)

2. FACT: Extraordinary rendition began under the Clinton regime.
Covert extraordinary rendition began as a systematic tactic on September 22, 1995, with the capture of terrorist Abu Talal al-Qasimi in Croatia; he was later transferred to Egypt for execution. The largest pre-9/11 CIA rendition occurred in 1998, when five suspects in Albania and Bulgaria were captured and rendered to Egypt. Two were hanged without trial; all were brutally tortured.

Renditions after 9/11 were different, however. The numbers expanded dramatically...

She's trying to follow her script, and she doesn't exactly have a script for ejected pilot. So she tries to cram the pilot into the "fell down" box.

The pilot's hurt, but he wants the dispatcher to understand and pass on that he's worried about his plane crashing into a populated area, and that a very expensive piece of military hardware is destroyed.

340 321 > The 911 dispatcher is incredulous.

I don't think that's quite right.

She's trying to follow her script, and she doesn't exactly have a script for ejected pilot. So she tries to cram the pilot into the "fell down" box.

The pilot's hurt, but he wants the dispatcher to understand and pass on that he's worried about his plane crashing into a populated area, and that a very expensive piece of military hardware is destroyed.

When did he call the squadron duty office? Or the base command post? Or any office or person at the base?

Oh, it was the Nile. It's just that they never name the river. They just call it "the great river" or somesuch.

345 Peas in chili. A conundrum that the Horde has not yet pondered.
------------
My second-generation Canadian, Great-Depression-raised, Irish mom's "goulash" was her chili recipe with the kidney beans swapped out for peas, for us four boys and dad from the '60s to the 2000s. I don't know if a family recipe or from Good Housekeeping or similar from the '50s or '60s. She served it with buttered toast.

Ground beef simmered in tomato juice with spices including paprika as well as chili powder as far as I know, and then the beans or peas added.

352 Federal prosecutors don't lose trials.

Particularly ones where they have a Pedo in their sights. Menendez is the last, and probably only, pedo trial any federal prosecutor has ever lost. The only thing that could possibly be worse on a prosecutor's record is if it had been a pro se defendant.

I'd be fired, because I'd be saying "what the hell is wrong with you," after I've already asked "what is your emergency" and gotten their answer.

The first five books of the Bible (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy) are the Torah, also called the Pentateuch & the Book of Moses.

363 I would imagine, if your life is dull, you could become a 911 dispatcher.

Most 911 dispatchers will be replaced by voice interactive AIs because is all they are anyway.

Trump engaged in financial 'bait-and-switch:' NY AG lawyer says

They're basically saying that if you are smart at financial real estate then that is illegal - only stupid people who get taken advantage of by banks and buyers are legal in NY. And by that you have to agree with whatever they say is the value of your asset - so no market price applies.

A guilty verdict upheld by appeal would, of course, crater real estate in New York down to zero - but the liberal left is frantically signaling that this is just a Trump thing, all is okay for the rest of us.

365 Ya..."The working Peoples Party" folks ALL regularly have $millions in gold bars and cash stuffed in their closets, or in the Freezer. Flash foreign super cars in the garage. Seems I remember another dem who commandeered a National Guard rescue convoy to run him by his "2nd home" and retrieve fat stacks of undeclared cash from his freezer.

At Hunters very FIRST meeting with a Chinese Billionaire, the "Totally not trying to buy influence, CCP agent" slid a high grade 8 carat diamond across the table..."For You".

Oh yeah, that Chinese partnered Business? Hunter resigned recently and GAVE his entire share(worth $Millions) to....The very same "Lawyer/Brother" that paid his evaded tax Bills, and was/is providing him with a Calif ocean front Home.
