Democrat Senator Robert Menendez sought to discourage the United States from giving security equipment to the Dominican Republic in order to help Dr. Salomon E. Melgen
Drip…Drip…Drip… The media still wouldn’t investigate if Democrat New Jersey Senator Robert ‘Bob’ Menendez had sex with under-aged prostitutes in the Dominican Republic, but at least some are starting the take interest into the corrupt of power Menendez used in order to help is pal and big donor Dr. Salomon E. Melgen. The New York Times of all pubications has found that Menendez sought to discourage the United States from giving security equipment to the Dominican Republic. Why? Because Bob Menendez cited ‘concerns’ that the donoration of security equipment might undermine efforts by a private company. Guess who runs that? — Dr. Salomon E. Melgen.
And it came shortly after the senator’s friend, Dr. Salomon E. Melgen, arranged to meet with a senior State Department official, accompanied by a former aide to Mr. Menendez, in a related push to protect the port security contract, which is worth as much as $500 million over 20 years.
Officials at the Department of Homeland Security and the State Department declined to comment on the matter, with a State Department official citing an investigation by the Senate Ethics Committee into related matters.
