Wife Charged Alongside Her Democrat Husband

via NewsNation.

Senator Bob Menendez’s wife and three other alleged co-conspirators have pleaded not guilty in federal court to charges related to a bribery scheme.

The superseding indictment accuses Menendez, his wife, and the co-defendants of engaging in a corrupt relationship and accepting bribes in exchange for using Menendez’s power and influence as a senator.

Menendez has denied the allegations and stated that he is loyal only to the United States. (Poll: Do You Trust the Biden Family? VOTE)

“The government’s latest charge flies in the face of my long record of standing up for human rights and democracy in Egypt and in challenging leaders of that country, including President El-Sisi, on these issues. I have been, throughout my life, loyal to only one country — the United States of America, the land my family chose to live in democracy and freedom,” he said.

“Piling new charge upon new charge does not make the allegations true. The facts haven’t changed, only a new charge. It is an attempt to wear someone down, and I will not succumb to this tactic. I again ask people who know me and my record to give me the chance to present my defense and show my innocence,” Menendez said.

He is expected to appear in court again on Monday.

Here’s a look at the alleged bribes:

• Police discovered more than $480,000 in cash in his home. The report says much of the cash was “stuffed into envelopes and hidden in clothing, closets, and a safe” and “over $70,000 in Nadine Menendez’s safe deposit box.”

• Gold bars were seized from Menendez’s home. The gold is estimated to be worth more than $100,000.

• Federal agents found “home furnishings” provided by foreign nationals.

• Prosecutors say the family’s Mercedes-Benz C-300 was also paid for as part of the bribe.

Here’s what Menendez allegedly did in return:

• Menendez allegedly sold national secrets to Egypt, including “sensitive U.S. government information and took other steps that secretly aided the government of Egypt.”

• Menendez allegedly lobbied the United States on behalf of Egypt. In 2018, Menendez “secretly edited and ghost-wrote” a letter on behalf of Egypt meant to persuade other U.S. senators to release a hold on $300 million in aid to the country.

• Menendez allegedly meddled with the justice system. In 2019, he allegedly attempted to strong-arm a prosecutor in the New Jersey Attorney General’s Office into resolving cases in favor of his friend who sent bribes. (Trending: Biden Breaks Texas Town’s All-Time Record)

• Menendez allegedly supported the nomination of U.S. attorney he thought would go easy on his friend.

• Menendez allegedly told Egyptian official what senators would ask. In June 2021, he held a private meeting with an Egyptian official and gave “questions that other U.S. senators” intended to ask him.

Menendez also spread his dirty cash around the Democrat Party to influence elections. Here’s a look at some of his donations:

• Sen. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) — Kelly for Senate $10,000, 3 Donations

• Sen. Tammy Baldwin (D-IL) — Tammy for Wisconsin $10,000, 4 Donations

• Sen. Ron Wyden (D-OR) — Wyden for Senate $10,000, 2 Donations
