I am having a wonderful time watching Democrat after Democrat call for this sleazeball to step down. Watching them go after one of their own for corrupt and illegal behavior. Something that Republicans are duty-bound to never do to any of the criminals in their ranks. Regardless of the felony or treason they have committed.
This has got to be one of the very biggest differences between the parties. The fact that Democrats have a sense of duty, honor and respect for the law, and the Republicans absolutely and totally lack any whatsoever.
"An Egyptian businessman accused of bribing Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., was arrested at a New York City airport Tuesday before pleading not guilty to federal corruption charges.
Wael Hana, who prosecutors say helped arrange meetings and dinners between Menendez, his wife Nadine Menendez and Egyptian military and intelligence officials, voluntarily flew back from Egypt and was arrested at John F. Kennedy International Airport Tuesday morning, according to his attorney, Lawrence J. Lustberg.
Later that afternoon, the 40-year-old originally from Egypt who primarily resided in New Jersey during the alleged yearslong bribery scheme, appeared before Magistrate Judge Ona T. Wang in Lower Manhattan where he pleaded not guilty to the charges brought in a federal indictment unsealed Friday in the Southern District of New York. Hana was then released on a $5 million personal recognizance bond after the judge set strict restrictions, including requiring him to surrender his passport and wear a GPS ankle monitor, the New York Times reported.
Menendez, his wife and two other co-defendants, Jose Uribe and Fred Daibes, are all scheduled to be arraigned in federal district court Wednesday morning. "
