Skip to comments.NJ senator under investigation for aiding embezzling brothers (ethnic solidarity's ugliness)

US Sen Robert Menendez (Dim-NJ) is under DOJ investigation for his connections to Ecuadorian bankers who allegedly stole millions, and, as fugitives, absconded to the US, now living comfortably in Coral Gables, Fla. The US has refused to extradite the bankers to Ecuador. The brothers' role in the collapse of Ecuador's Filanbanco cost the countrys taxpayers millions.
Menendez is under DOJ federal criminal investigation for efforts he made using his office to intervene to help William and Roberto Isaias stay in Florida after they were sentenced in absentia for according to NBC news....Menendez acted improperly by intervening with Homeland Security and the State Department to help the duo, the report said.

Robert Menendez is the one with the thing for Dominican hookers, right?
Same ethnicity? Menendez is Ecuadorian? I always thought he was Cuban. If you know anything about either country, they have about as much in common (from a culture standpoint, or if you’d like, ethnically) as the United States and Nigeria, even though both countries speak the same language.
This jacka$$ is always “under investigation”. He’s a dim, so nothing becomes of it.
Christie or some of his staff will go down for much less...
This might just be smoke to cover the Christie and Dinesh D'Souza persecutions.
Consorting with underage prostitutes doesn't warrant investigation, but consorting with criminals does? Almost all of Congress and the White House staff should be under investigation by that standard.
Yep----the subject became news fodder when the little girls
claimed Menendez underpaid them for their sexual favors.
The ‘RAT toadies in the “media” will make this go away.
This is a very complicated story that involves Ecuador’s seizure of banks and private corporations when the left came into power there a few years ago. Ecuador has become a leftist kleptocracy aligned with all the bad players in the hemisphere.
The only thing Ecuador and Cuba have in common is that they are ruled by leftwing nutcases, and I’m actually surprised that Menendez is not supporting them.
The Post should do better research.
He is a Demonkrat and nothing will come of this. he will get the same treatment as the Clintons and the rest of the ilk. Mostly, because he is a “minority”.
Politico reports 3/19/13 that Floridian Salomon Melgen airlifted Dem Majority leader Harry Reid (Dim-Nevada) on his private jet. NJ's Menendez is Melgen's errand boy---Booby will perform for cash. Floridian Melgen gave $700,000 to Nevadan Reid's PAC---Reid then poured money into NJ's Menendez's reelection campaign
Politico also got ahold of an exclusive photo the White House does not want you to see--- a beaming Obama w/ Melgen at his side.
At the time, Floridian Melgen co-hosted a 2009 fundraiser for the Dem's DSCC committee headed by NJ's Menendez.
MENENDEZ SUCKS-UP FOR ETHNIC SOLIDARITY Then in 2011, Floridian Melgen hosted a star-studded fundraiser at his Florida home for NJ's Menendez.....included retired Army Lt. Gen. Ricardo Sanchez, then a Texas Senate candidate, and world-famous Mexican balladeer José José (who?).
ERRAND BOY NJ'S MENENDEZ INTERVENES On two occasions (that we know of), errand boy Menendez personally contacted top Medicare officials about an HHS ruling that Floridian Melgen owed $8.9 million for over-billing. Dual-citizen Melgen ranted about having to pay up---whined that HHS did not give him a hearing.
While Floridian Melgen was glad-handing politicians for business profits, he flaunted his wealth---chauffeur-driven in a customized Audi A8 and inviting politicians needing a lube job to his mansion in the Dominican Republic.
Melgen has a collection of photos with politicians including him golfing with Bill Clinton. Floridian Melgen bragged about using his plane to transport entertainment to a super PAC fundraiser at the DNC Convention last summer.
Florida resident Melgen tapped into NJ's Menendez's errand boy status at a political function in the early 1990s, when Menendez was in the House of Representatives. Over time, Foridian Melgen and his family donated nearly $1 million to NJ's Menendez and related committees. NJ's Menendez vacations frequently with Floridian Melgen in the villa Melgen owns in the Dominican Republic.

DOMINICAN REPUBLIC HAS AN IRON GRIP ON AMERICA'S POLITICAL/ELECTORAL SYSTEM--its greedy tentacles surface in every facet of US power centers.
LYING-IN-WAIT Neutral Dominican Republic travel brochures recount how the cunning Dominican govt survives on billions of our tax dollars which its illegal residents located here send back home---all of them riding the US gravy train.
The do-nothing Caribbean Third World satrap is teeming with poverty. The do-nothing Dominican govt provides no social safety nets for needy citizenry. The connivers work the US system---quitely and secretly lying-in-wait---to maximize its iron grip on America's power centers.
DOMINICAN REPUBLIC MEDDLES IN US AFFAIRS---MOVING TO SAVE MENENDEZ It is an unconscionable travesty against representative democracy-- that the corrupt Dominican Republic meddling in US affairs---cooking the books offshore to help Menendez stay in power.
HOW DO YOU SAY QUID PRO QUO IN SPANISH? Clearly, a deal was made. IF (BIG IF) the Dominican Republic saves Menendez's degenerate a** (and prevents the dreaded Christie appointment), Obama will write the foreign aid check w/ plenty of zeros.
BOTTOM LINE Menendez has TWO governments protecting him----New Jerseyans have not even one government looking after our interests. The Gimme Zombies meddling marginalizes Americans, and undermines our political system.
Is this the Menendez who is defying Obama on Iran?
