Feds to Charge Dem Sen. Bob Menendez with Corruption

Justice: Democrat used Senate office to benefit donor, friend

(CNN) – The Justice Department is preparing to bring criminal corruption charges against New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez, a Democrat, alleging he used his Senate office to push the business interests of a Democratic donor and friend in exchange for gifts.

People briefed on the case say Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on prosecutors’ request to proceed with charges, CNN has learned exclusively. An announcement could come within weeks. Prosecutors are under pressure in part because of the statute of limitation on some of the allegations.

The case could pose a high-profile test of the Justice Department’s ability to prosecute sitting lawmakers, having already spawned a legal battle over whether key evidence the government has gathered is protected by the Constitution’s Speech and Debate clause.

The FBI and prosecutors from the Justice Department’s public integrity section, have pursued a variety of allegations against Menendez, who has called the probe part of “smear campaign” against him.

The government’s case centers on Menendez’s relationship with Salomon Melgen, a Florida ophthalmologist who the senator has called a friend and political supporter. Melgen and his family have been generous donors to the senator and various committees the senator is associated with...(MORE)

Rush: What If Obama Wants a 3rd Term?

(Rush Limbaugh) – BEGIN TRANSCRIPT

RUSH: John in Belleville, Pennsylvania, next up.  Open Line Friday.  How’s it going?

CALLER:  Hello, Rush.  It’s a thrill and an honor to get to talk to you.

RUSH:  Thank you, sir, very much.  I’m glad you made it through.

CALLER:  First, I do want to say that that 90-something percent accuracy figure is incorrect.  I’ve listened and I believe you’re 100%.

RUSH:  Well, you’re very kind, sir.

CALLER:  Now, my question — and I know I’ll sound like a kook. But assuming the Democrats can’t come up with anybody decent to win the presidency and the powers that push Obama’s buttons tell him to stay as president or stay on because of some created crisis, how in the world do we get him out of there?  The Republicans don’t have the gall to do it, and I think the Supreme Court is pretty well left-leaning at this point. So how do we get rid of Obama if he decides to stay...(MORE)
