Sen. Menendez Faces Federal Corruption Trial, Unless Supreme Court Intervenes

WASHINGTON — Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) has lost his final opportunity for a federal appeals court to spare him from multiple corruption indictments, leaving him with only the hope of an intervention by the U.S. Supreme Court to avoid a trial on 22 felonies that could send him to prison for years.

The Democratic Senator is being pursued by the U.S. Department of Justice on charges of corruption, alleging that he solicited and received valuable gifts from a wealthy ophthalmologist—Dr. Salomon Melgen—in exchange for using his power and influence as a U.S. senator to try blocking a federal enforcement action against the eye doctor, whom the government charged with overbilling Medicare to the tune of $8.9 million.
