Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) Faces New Allegations of Bribery in Superseding Indictment from Manhattan Federal Prosecutors

Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) is facing new allegations of bribery in a superseding indictment from Manhattan federal prosecutors, which accuse him of using his position as head of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to benefit the government of Qatar and three businessmen. The indictment alleges Menendez accepted lavish gifts in exchange for using his power and influence as a U.S. senator, and he and his wife, Nadine, are charged with four counts related to the alleged bribery scheme. Menendez has denied any wrongdoing and is scheduled to go to trial in October, with a potential sentence of up to 20 years in prison if convicted.
