    WASHINGTON (AP) — Sen. Bob Menendez has been charged with using his office to improperly benefit a Florida eye doctor and political donor.

    A federal grand jury on Wednesday indicted the New Jersey Democrat on charges including conspiracy to commit bribery and wire fraud.

    Prosecutors had been investigating whether Menendez improperly advocated for the business interests of Dr. Salomon Melgen, including by intervening on the doctor's behalf in a medical billing dispute.

    Menendez has acknowledged that he flew on Melgen's private plane to the Dominican Republic and failed at first to properly pay for the trips. He later made reimbursements.

    Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, has previously said he's done nothing wrong and that he and Melgen have been close friends for a long time.

    Well really Menendez has been critical of BO's Foreign Policy long before the Iranian Nuke Talks......When Menendez was causing BO some dandruff over Cuba. Thats when they let in on he was under investigation and it looked like he was going to be indicted.

    Hopefully Kirk will still push the bill anyways. Plus Rubio and Cotton have theirs.

    You heard that Joe Walsh wants to get Kirk knocked out of his Senate Seat.....which then that just makes it easy for Duckworth to win the seat. Demos will be throwing a lot of money at this seat in 2016. Since it use to be BO's.

    Well, we know whos next on BO's hit list. Don't we?



    Howard Dean: Yeah, It's Time to Walk Away From the Iran Negotiations.....


    According to some White House defenders' simplistic and demagogic formulation, skeptics of the Iran deal are beating the drums of war. This ignores a range of alternative options, including the imposition of crippling sanctions, but that's not the point. The point is to pretend that Obama's permissive deal is the only thing standing between the US and a ground war in Iran. Via NRO, say hello to Howard Dean, warmonger:

    He counsels the American delegation to pack up and leave, and perhaps return to the table at a later date when additional pressure has been ratcheted up against the regime. Here's where things stand at last report: Top negotiators from several countries have departed Switzerland, despite the US' insistence that talks continue past yesterday's deadline. Because the rate of progress is "slow going," according to the British Foreign Minister, this is the farcical readjustment of expectations bleeding out of the negotiations:.....snip~

    BO thought he got rid of him when he was replaced as Head of the DNP. Which this isn't the first time Dean has been out telling BO what to do. But at least he is calling it Right.

    All things considered, Howard Dean is more a strategist than a politician. But in a scale of lean he might be further left than Obama ever has been.
