U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez, D-New Jersey, and his wife have been indicted in New York on federal bribery charges related to their allegedly “corrupt relationship” with businessmen from their home state.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office in Manhattan has scheduled a press conference for Friday to discuss the indictment against the senator and Nadine Menendez, which also charges three businessmen: Wael Hana, Jose Uribe and Fred Daibes.

The indictment says that Menendez and his wife from at least 2018 through 2022 accepted “hundreds of thousands of dollars in bribes in exchange for using Menendez’s power and influence as senator” to benefit the men and Egypt.
