Senator Bob Menendez is a crook but he’s also a patsy.
Yesterday it was reported that Senator Bob Menendez and his wife were arrested for bribery. Even far-left publications were in on the news. This went against their norm of ignoring news of corruption by the criminal Democrat Party and Deep State.
Far-left Politico reported:
After getting home from an unofficial-turned-sanctioned trip to Egypt in October 2021, New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez searched on Google: “how much is one kilo of gold worth.”
He had some gold bars laying around, according to an indictment prosecutors unveiled on Friday alleging he took them as bribes from New Jersey businesspeople in a scheme that aided the Egyptian government.
Then, around Jan. 29, 2022, Menendez looked on Google again. He would have found that the number had risen slightly to about $58,000. Maybe it was still too low.
On March 31, 2022, his wife Nadine sold two of those 1 kg gold bars in Manhattan. At that time, market prices suggest she probably would have pulled in around a cool $120,000; the spot price of gold at the time had risen to about $62,000 per kilogram.
And if Menendez made the same search Friday, he would find out that the price of gold was about $61,908. So, maybe he sold at just the right time.
The gold bars are just part of the biggest scandal yet for the 69-year-old politician, who has dodged numerous controversies in his career.
In the indictment, prosecutors put on display pictures of the gold and cash they discovered at his home during a June 2022 court-authorized search. Those gifts, alongside home furniture and a Mercedes-Benz convertible that prosecutors say the businesspeople gifted her after she got in a car accident, are some of the eye-popping details that emerged from a juicy indictment prosecutors unveiled on Friday.
But why Menendez and why now?
We’ve seen gifts much larger from the Biden family and we’ve heard that there is much more that Hunter and the Biden gang received from China.
The media is using corrupt Menendez. He’s a patsy – a fall guy. He’s certainly corrupt, but not near the corruption as the Biden gang.
Don’t be fooled. This is a head fake to take the attention away from the Biden gang. This is also an effort by the DOJ to pretend to be unbiased.
