Dem Senator Menendez charged with bribery

Democratic United States Senator from New Jersey Bob Menendez (pictured) along with his wife Nadine are facing bribery charges, the United States Attorney's Office in New York said on Friday in a post published on social media platform X (formerly known as Twitter).

The post revealed that these bribery offenses are in connection with their "corrupt relationship with three New Jersey businessmen," adding that the unsealing of the indictment will take place later in the day.

The current chairman of the US Senate Foreign Relations Committee was hit with separate corruption-related charges in 2015 in a case that resulted in a mistrial.
