Skip to comments."Federal Judge excoriates Sen. Menendez prosecution team." Nothing about this on Drudge

The judge overseeing the bribery trial of Sen. Robert Menendez ripped into prosecutors Thursday for trying to focus on what he called tabloid details an unusual description for dry testimony about a series of emails about a hotel reservation.
U.S. District Judge William Walls stopped testimony for 20 minutes in which he tongue-lashed prosecutors for their painstaking recounting of emails used to book a luxury hotel in Paris for the New Jersey Democrat in 2010. The three-day hotel stay is a central part of the Justice Departments case.

I recently stopped even looking at Drudge, but that said, there is a major hurricane bearing down on Florida and that’s taking up most of the current cycle.
If you’re still a visitor to his site why don’t you email him and ask why there’s no coverage? He might surprise you and actually reply.
Pretty sure I saw on Drudge that the judge told the defense attorney to “shut up”.
Its corrupt but I predict a non guilty verdict. These politicians do favors for their rich donors all the time.
I saw that yesterday. They were laughing about it on Twitchy.
Somebody said, at least the judge didn’t say STFU.
Bloviating gets old pretty fast.
Drudge is an aggregator of stories published elsewhere. Are you really surprised the MSM is not writing about the Menendez story? Of course there’s a blackout...when’s the last time you read about Clinton’s rape victims in the MSM?
Get rid of Drudge.

No need to slam drudge. It’s childish and stupid. Almost no one is covering this trial. Drudge is an aggragator. If others aren’t covering it it isn’t going to appear.
He is covering other stories
Is that you Kristina?
Drudge who? I no longer click on his site. He stabs Trump in the back every chance he gets.
That’s what I’m reading between the lines too. Apparently this judge has already made up his mind about guilt or innocence and doesn’t care. He’s going to find a reason to dismiss the case and find Menendez innocent.
The fact is Menendez probably didn’t do anything any worse than most pols do. He just happened to get caught or pissed off someone so they had someone look into him with a fine tooth comb.
I’m no fan of this guy but there are a much bigger fish to fry if they really wanted to get serious about prosecuting pols starting with obama.

After meeting briefly with Obama at a 2010 fundraiser that Dr Melgen paid $30,400 to co-host, the eye doctor complained that Obama didnt even give him the time of day, according to a source who travels in the same Miami political circles as Melgen.
The source said Melgen also expressed frustration that he couldnt take his concerns about his questionable Medicare billing practices directly to Obamas Health and Human Services Secretary, Kathleen Sebelius.
He was ranting about HHS and Sebelius not understanding and not wanting to listen to him and not giving him a hearing, said the source, who did not want to be identified WRT revealing the contents of private conversations.
Dr Melgen and friend.
FACTS ON FILE---Sen Menendez abused his position---he used US govt authority and govt resources...... and his privileged Senate position...... to force approval of Dr Melgen's lucrative port cargo deal into fruition. The so-called "port security deal means big bucks.
(NOTE earlier reports say Central America drug cartels smuggle drugs into the US undetected ---- secreted in Dominican port cargo containers without supervision).
Dr Melgen assiduously courted President Barack Obama and Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, but Melgen expected a major suckup for his money---he was unhappy with the return on his campaign donation "investments."
New Jersey Senator Menendez's long-time personal, political and financial ties to Floridian Dr Salomon Melgen came under close scrutiny after an FBI raid at the doctor's West Palm Beach, Fla, offices.
Lock him up. Drudge has gone RINO.

Corruption, thy name is Obama and Pelosi. The place they want to take America is a Banana Republic hellhole.
