Democrat New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez is facing a corruption trial for his connection to a doctor who allegedly committed Medicaid fraud.
The media is too busy obsessing over Trump’s tweets to even look into this.
The Hill reports:
Judge rejects co-defendant’s request to delay Menendez corruption trial
A federal judge in New Jersey on Thursday rejected a Florida doctor’s motion to postpone his and Sen. Bob Menendez’s (D-N.J.) September corruption trial, New Jersey Advance Media reported.
Attorneys for Dr. Salomon Melgen, an eye doctor who was convicted in a federal court in Florida last month of 67 counts of Medicaid fraud, asked U.S. District Judge William Walls last week to delay his and Menendez’s trial until October…
In the New Jersey federal court case, Melgen and Menendez are facing corruption charges, with prosecutors alleging that Melgen gave the New Jersey Democrat nearly $1 million in campaign donations and free trips in exchange for government-related favors.
Menendez, who has served in the Senate since 2006, has pleaded not guilty in the case. Walls previously denied requests by Menendez’s attorneys to delay the trial until October.
Is it too much to ask for CNN and other liberal media outlets to look into this?
They can’t even be bothered.
