The roof is falling in on Democrats across the country.
Each day brings a new terrible headline.
And a top Senator under criminal investigation is the October surprise Democrats cannot afford.
Democrats are already trying to fend off Republican attacks on inflation, the economy, and crime.
Now the Left’s culture of corruption cultivated by one Party rule over Washington, D.C. is now in the headlines.
A bombshell new report revealed that New Jersey Democrat Senator Bob Menendez is under criminal investigation by federal prosecutors in the Southern District of New York.
Semafor exclusively reports:
Senator Robert Menendez, D-N.J. faces a new federal investigation, according to two people familiar with the inquiry.
Prosecutors in the Southern District of New York have contacted people connected to Menendez in recent weeks, the sources said. They have sent at least one subpoena in the case, according to a person connected to the inquiry.
An advisor to Menendez responded to a request for comment hours after Semafor published the original story. “Senator Menendez is aware of an investigation that was reported on today, however he does not know the scope of the investigation,” Michael Soliman texted Semafor. “As always, should any official inquiries be made, the Senator is available to provide any assistance that is requested of him or his office.”
A Menendez spokesman confirmed that he was aware of the probe.
“Senator Menendez is aware of an investigation that was reported on today, however he does not know the scope of the investigation,” Michael Soliman wrote in a statement to Semafor. “As always, should any official inquiries be made, the Senator is available to provide any assistance that is requested of him or his office.”
The Obama Justice Department indicted Menedez in 2015 on allegations that he traded $600,0000 in private jet flights and vacations for political favors with Florida eye doctor Salomon Melgen.
A trial ended in a hung jury in 2017.
This is now the third criminal investigation Menendez finds himself under in three decades.
At a time when poll numbers for Democrats are collapsing in key races across the country, the last thing the Party needs are headlines focusing on a criminal investigation against one of the leading members in Congress.
