Menendez’s Growing Dilemma Takes Center Stage

(TargetDailyNews.com) – According to a report, the FBI probe of Democrat senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ), initially revealed a year ago but seemingly ongoing for much longer, appears to be reaching a climax.

Last month, a report indicated that Menendez’s lawyers and prosecutors would meet. A conference of this kind is reported to take place when prosecutors think they have gathered the proof they need to file charges, as stated in the report.

According to NBC News, prosecutors are investigating whether developer Fred Daibes delivered gold bars to Menendez and his wife, along with a promise of assistance in Daibes’ criminal case.

Individuals involved with the investigation say federal prosecutors are trying to determine whether an acknowledged criminal arranged for gold bars valued at hundreds of thousands of US Dollars to be sent to New Jersey Senator Robert Menendez or his wife in return for assistance.

They want to know whether the Democrat Menendez tried to aid the individual charged with financial crimes by contacting the Justice Department. A federal grand jury in Manhattan is now debating whether or not to indict the senator on corruption allegations, and they are looking into these matters.

According to sources, testimony from witnesses before the federal grand jury has begun. The probe focuses on the senator’s connections to a New Jersey builder and a former bank chairman, Fred Daibes. The IRS and FBI Criminal Investigation seeks to determine whether Daibes or his colleagues supplied gold bars to Nadine Arslanian, the senator’s wife, with a value of up to $400,000.

Daibes was facing up to ten years in federal prison on bank fraud charges at the time of the transfer of the gold.

Federal prosecutors reportedly inquired if Menendez gave assistance to Daibes in his criminal case by approaching Justice Department officials. Legal experts say it could be illegal for the senator to promise to take action in return for presents of significant value.

When asked about the allegations in May, Menendez said he was confident the case wouldn’t bring any charges.
