    Why are they charging him? He has always been a good little establishment to toady according to wikipedia.

  2. Morsie says:

    He will never be convicted.He has dodged this stuff for years.Deeply deeply corrupt but must have the photos of everyone.

  3. NFA says:

    You need an ‘expert’ to send money overseas.

  4. B'wana Sahul says:

    The question remains, why did the syndicate get rid of this guy? Were the 3 co-defendents getting too uppity?

  5. Charles says:

    The raid that produced this evidence was conducted 15 months ago. Menendez has continued on that Senate Committee for all that time. Why now? Undoubtedly the timing is political, to provide cover of sorts for the Bidens. It would seem that the complaints that the DOJ is partisan in favour of Democrats have had some effect. They have thrown Menedez under the bus to counter such claims.

  6. Buccaneer says:

    He seems small beer compared to the Bidens, if they’ve thrown him under the bus to protect the Bidens that seems a strange strategy unless they have a couple of high profile republicans ready to go down for the same thing. Otherwise it just looks like the corruption is institutionalised within the dems. Which we all pretty much knew it was, but people actually getting investigated, let alone charged or convicted has always been hard to get to.

  7. C.L. says:

    What Charles said.

    I think corruption is institutionalised within the Congress, Bucc. This has been going on for a long time. The insider-trading, the lifelong senators with regal estates etc. The Pelosis made millions by moving stocks around at the perfect time. They’re all doing it. That’s the thing – that’s why it’s pretty rare for somebody on one side to pursue somebody on the other over money; it’s a gentleman’s agreement.

  8. NFA says:

    what Charles and C.L. said.

    Plus their system, whereby ‘vested interest’ law firms create laws and regulations which are then ‘sold’ to the politicians by lobbyists.

    We seem to have adopted the ‘lobbyist’ system as well.

  9. John of Mel says:

    I think corruption is institutionalised within the Congress,

    That’s pretty much it.

    Here is a good (and entertaining) talk by a Silicon Valley VC that is related to the overall direction of the US authorities and the way they intertwine with the big business.

    I’m not sure it’s that much different here, judging by the support of the Yes voice campaign by almost all big businesses and many other despicable things.

    Give dictators billions and they kick back millions
