Bob, Bob, Bob. Are You Seriously That Stupid?

Sen. Bob Menendez was charged Friday with secretly aiding the authoritarian government of Egypt and trying to thwart the criminal prosecution of a friend in exchange for gold bars and cash, as prosecutors unsealed a corruption indictment that accuses him of using his foreign affairs influence for personal gain.

The indictment, the second in eight years against the powerful 69-year-old New Jersey Democrat, alleges an illegal commingling of Menendez’s professional obligations as chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee to advance U.S. priorities and his private interest in cultivating relationships with wealthy businessmen.

The indictment also charges him, his wife and three New Jersey businessmen who authorities say showered the couple with money, gold and a luxury car in exchange for his actions on their behalf. A previous indictment of Menendez stemming from different allegations ended in 2017 with a deadlocked jury.
...
Authorities found more than $100,00 worth of gold bars in Menendez’s home, and more than $480,000 in cash — much of it hidden in closets, clothing and a safe, prosecutors say. Photos included in the indictment show cash that was stuffed in envelopes found in jackets bearing Menendez’s name. Investigators discovered a Google search by Menendez for the value of a “kilo of gold,” and DNA of one men prosecutors say bribed him on an envelope filled with thousands of dollars in Menendez’s home, they said
.

Maybe he needs nearly a half-million in cash on hand in case somebody had a few dozen S&W Registered Magnums to sell?

It is hard to escape concluding that Menendez thought he was bulletproof because he skated off on the last time he was charged with being a corrupt fuck. No doubt he'll rip a page out of the TOFF's playbook and scream that this is a witchhunt.

Amazing thing is, that the Democrats are not circling the wagons to protect one of their own no matter what the charges are. What kind of party doesn't defend one of their own no matter how deplorable and the amount of evidence presented? Answering my own question: "Not the self-proclaimed 'Law and Order' party".
