In a stunning turn of events, Sen. Bob Menendez and his wife Nadine are facing serious charges of bribery, conspiracy, and extortion.

The Bounty of Bribes
The alleged bribes received by Sen. Menendez and Nadine encompass a wide range of valuable assets, including:
Contributions towards their home mortgage
Compensation for a dubious “low-or-no-show” job
A luxury vehicle
Various items of considerable worth
Federal agents, acting on their suspicions, executed search warrants at the couple’s residence in Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey, in June 2022. What they uncovered was astonishing:
Cash Stashed Away
More than $480,000 in cash was discovered, with much of it concealed in envelopes and hidden among clothing, closets, and a safe.
Jackets bearing Senator Menendez’s name were found hanging in his closet, linked to the alleged bribery.
Nadine’s Safe Deposit Box
A significant sum of over $70,000 was found in Nadine Menendez’s safe deposit box, raising further questions.
Perhaps most strikingly, a Mercedes-Benz convertible valued at over $60,000 was allegedly given to Nadine by New Jersey businessmen Wael Hana and Jose Uribe, supposedly in return for Senator Menendez’s interference in a state criminal prosecution.
Hidden Gold Bars
Hidden away in the Menendez home were gold bars worth hundreds of thousands of dollars, allegedly provided by businessmen Wael Hana and Fred Daibes. These businessmen, along with Jose Uribe, also face charges in connection with these alleged bribery schemes.
