An MSNBC host reporting on the corruption case of New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez told viewers it just “looks overwhelming.”
Ari Melber recapped the allegations and facts in the case against the Democratic senator who is facing charges for allegedly accepting free travel and political donations from a friend, South Florida Dr. Salomon Melgen, who is accused of Medicare fraud to the tune of more than $100 million.
“Today, a big political question put to a serious test. What counts as bribery today in America?” Melber asked Wednesday. “Prosecutors throwing the book at him, saying there’s bribery, conspiracy and lying. Prosecutors say he accepted over half a million dollars worth of private flights, free vacations and political donations from the south Florida doctor who received political favors from Menendez in return, including help with fraudulent Medicare patients and visas for this donor’s girlfriends.”
Melber admitted the road ahead does not look promising for the lawmaker.
“The case against Menendez as a legal matter doesn’t look close,” Melber said, “it looks overwhelming.”
“We don’t know what will happen and if he will be vindicated,” the MSNBC host concluded. “If a politician can take the kind of gifts that Menendez has already taken and be acquitted, then you have to wonder if there’s something wrong with all of these corruption laws in the first place.”
