Sure seems like political corruption is getting split open all over the place lately... I say GOOD!
Exclusive: Federal Probe into New Jersey Sen. Menendez Is Widening
The Justice Department is investigating Menendez's efforts on behalf of two businessmen from Ecuador
The federal criminal investigation into New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez is broader than previously known, NBC 4 New York has learned.
The Department of Justice is investigating Menendez's efforts on behalf of two fugitive bankers from Ecuador, multiple current and former U.S, officials tell NBC 4 New York. The probe into Menendezís dealing with the bankers comes as federal authorities are also investigating his relationship to a big campaign donor from Florida.
The criminal investigation is focusing in part on the senatorís ties to William and Roberto Isaias and whether the senator crossed a line in trying to help the two brothers stay in the United States.
The Isaias brothers have been fugitives from their native Ecuador for more than a decade -- sentenced in absentia for embezzling millions as the bank they ran there was collapsing.
