Menendez Robert

A federal grand jury has indicted Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., on corruption charges for allegedly using his Senate office to push the business interests of a friend and donor in exchange for gifts.

Investigators have focused in part on plane trips Menendez took in 2010 to the Dominican Republic as a guest of Salomon Melgen, a Florida ophthalmologist whom the senator has called a friend and political supporter. In 2013, after word of the federal investigation became public, Menendez paid back Melgen $58,000 for the plane trips. He called his failure to properly disclose the flights an "Oversight."

The case was brought by the Justice Department's Public Integrity Section. Ref. CNN
