Prosecutors To Retry Infamous Democrat

Federal prosecutors intend to retry U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez on corruption charges after a jury deadlocked on a verdict last year, according to a Friday court filing.

“The United States files this notice of intent to retry the defendants and requests that the court set the case for retrial at the earliest possible date,” the notice to Judge William H. Walls said.

Menendez, of Paramus, and co-defendant Salomon Melgen, an eye doctor from Florida, were indicted in 2015 on bribery and corruption charges. A lengthy trial last year ended in a deadlock.

Prosecutors said that an “early retrial date is in the best interests of the public, and the United States is available to schedule a retrial at the Court’s earliest convenience.”
