After Crooked Democrat Gets Indicted – He Makes 1 Pitiful Move to Save Himself

The mainstream media might be trying to hide it, but Democrat Sen. Bob Menendez is still in big trouble. He remains in office and is refusing to step down. His party appears to be doing nothing to pressure him to leave.

All this, despite the fact he is facing serious charges of receiving bribes from a foreign entity. The man allegedly took money in exchange for influence from Egyptian businessmen.

This crime could land him in prison. It should be enough to sink his reelection bid. But he has come up with a “brilliant” move that might save his career. This should sicken anyone with a conscience.

From Daily Wire:
Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ) appears set to try to blame his wife, Nadine Menendez, for the federal bribery charges that the couple is facing, according to newly unsealed court documents…

The 70-year-old senator is planning to show the “absence of any improper intent on Senator Menendez’s part” by “demonstrating the ways” that his wife “withheld information from Sen. Menendez or otherwise led him to believe that nothing unlawful was taking place,” the document continued.

Wow. According to newly released documents, Democrat Sen. Menendez might blame his wife for the supposed bribery and other crimes he is being charged with. Documents allege that Menendez did not know that anyone unlawful was taking place—and that his wife misled him the entire time.

There does not appear to be enough evidence to prove this claim. The Feds have Menendez using his influence on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to help three businessmen. It might be hard for him to prove ignorance when he was on that committee, not his wife.

On top of that, he is also being charged with helping secure a big investment for a friend from the Qatari government, in part by taking actions to help Qatar. Not sure how his wife was a part of that.

He is also being charged with conspiracy, obstruction of justice, a public official acting as a foreign agent, bribery, extortion, and wire fraud. It seems the claim that this was all his wife’s doing will not be enough to sponge away all these charges.

It is unknown what his wife thinks of this move. But it is likely most Americans will be appalled at Menendez’s actions. To throw his wife under the bus to save his own skin… that might be the lowest of low.

Key Takeaways:

  • Bob Menendez might blame his wife to save himself.
  • The Democrat is being charged with a list of serious crimes.
  • He has been accused of accepting bribes to help foreign entities.
