Allegations of unethical (or worse) behavior have dogged Bob Menendez for as long as he’s been in Washington. His 2017 bribery trial ended in a mistrial.
Is he under investigation… again?
According to Kadia Goba of Semafor, “[p]rosecutors in the Southern District of New York have contacted people connected to [U.S. Senator] Menendez in recent weeks” and “have sent at least one subpoena in the case.”
“The two people familiar with the investigation, one who is directly connected to the investigation and the other a New Jersey lawyer who has been told of the case, said that the broad outlines of the new inquiry are similar to the 2017 case,” Goba reported on Wednesday morning. “Both said that the new investigation involves an entirely different group of people, however.”
