SCOTUS Isn’t Coming to Bob Menendez’s Rescue

Bob Menendez‘s upcoming vote on the Gorsuch nomination is no longer relevant, Save Jerseyans.

Back in December, Menendez’s lawyers filed a petition with the U.S. Supreme Court arguing that his pending federal bribery charges infringe upon legislative activity protected by the United States Constitution’s “Speech-Or-Debate” Clause. On Monday, the U.S. Supreme Court indicated, without comment, that it won’t take up Menendez’s petition in which he argued that the 3rd Circuit  erred in failing to vindicate him pursuant to the Constitution’s “speech or debate” clause.

Menendez and his legal team had hoped for rescue like back when, back in 2016, the Supreme Court tossed out the conviction of former Republican Virginia Governor Bob McDonnell.
