January 1, Democrat Senator Indicted on Bribery Charges



The world of politics is swirling with shocking allegations as Senator Bob Menendez, D-N.J., and his wife, Nadine Menendez, are facing federal charges.

An indictment unsealed in federal court reveals accusations of the couple violating corruption and bribery laws, with Menendez staunchly denying any wrongdoing, claiming forces “behind the scenes” are working to silence him and dig his “political grave.”

Menendez declared, “Since this investigation was leaked nearly a year ago there has been an active smear campaign of anonymous sources and innuendoes to create an air of impropriety where none exists.”

The indictment discloses a concoction of sprawling allegations against Menendez, alleging he engaged in a corrupt scheme with Fred Daibes, a New Jersey real estate developer; Wael Hana, who runs a halal meat certification business; and businessman Jose Uribe.

The contents reveal claims of gold bars, money stuffed in envelopes, and illicit halal certifications as part of a larger scheme to aid the Egyptian government.

According to the indictment, Menendez allegedly “provided sensitive U.S. Government information and took other steps that secretly aided the Government of Egypt.”

He is accused of having “improperly advised and pressured an official at the United States Department of Agriculture” to protect a business monopoly granted to Hana by Egypt, used, in part, to fund the bribes being paid to Menendez through Nadine Menendez.

As agents delved deeper, they uncovered over $480,000 in cash during a raid in June 2022, with some of the money hidden in jackets bearing Menendez’s name next to the insignia for the Congressional Hispanic Caucus.

The indictment also mentions over one hundred thousand dollars’ worth of gold bars discovered in the home, provided by either Hana or Daibes, and the finding of a luxury vehicle paid for by Uribe parked in the garage.

The indictment recalls Menendez searching on Google for the “kilo of gold price” on Jan. 29, 2022, seemingly to ascertain the value of the gold bars found on his property. This occurrence came to light shortly after Menendez’s wife allegedly exchanged calls with Daibes’ driver, thanking him and referring to the interaction as “Christmas in January.”

The indictment alleges attempts by Menendez to influence federal criminal prosecutions, with him reportedly recommending now-U.S. Attorney Philip Sellinger, seemingly believing he would be sympathetic to Daibes. During this time, cash, gold bars, and furniture were allegedly received by Menendez and his wife in return for his intervention efforts.

In another shocking turn, the indictment alleges the receipt of a Mercedes-Benz C-300 convertible by Menendez and his wife, supposedly in exchange for Menendez’s intervention in a New Jersey state criminal prosecution related to an associate of Uribe.

After acquiring the vehicle, Menendez’s wife allegedly texted him, “Congratulations mon amour de la vie, we are the proud owners of a 2019 Mercedes.”

These detailed revelations provide a glimpse into the alleged corruption and bribe-laden world Menendez is accused of inhabiting. The Senator maintains that his behavior was well within the realm of his office’s authority and continues to deny any illicit activities.

      Definitely do find it ironic. But then that is the Democrat in DC way of being. They feel they should be impervious to being caught doing what they accuse others of or being held accountable. Smear campaign? Seems he created this himself and it is pretty stupid way of doing anything. Does anyone really think Trump has committed 91 felonies and not one was ever noticed through the years? The corrupt Dem party of elected representatives, department appointed and appointed judges do not follow the Constitution. They are just a bunch of power hungry miscreants who believe they will remain omnipotent, if achieve socialism/totalitarian US govt..
