The American Senator Menendez dealt with in two other blogs was he incarcerated? A few years later the charges were dropped completely and he is still serving in the Senate. How is it possible that he is not being accused of bribery and corruption?
It is easy. He claimed that because Melgen never gave him anything in exchange for something else it was not bribery. Politicians and lobbyists have long preferred this trick because it prevents them from being held accountable for their deeds.
