Former President Donald Trump is calling on Senate Democrats to step down from their posts in light of the federal indictment brought against New Jersey Democratic Sen. Bob Menendez a week ago, making the claim that it’s likely they all were aware of the alleged bribes he took. Just one fatal flaw in Trump’s thinking. He’s assuming that Democrats will take personal responsibility for their own actions. This is a character trait that is completely missing from the vast majority of individuals on the left. He should know this more than anyone else, seeing as how radical progressives are constantly blaming him for all of their own screw-ups.
According to the Daily Wire, “The indictment, unsealed on Friday, says that Menendez and his wife had a corrupt relationship with New Jersey businessmen Wael Hana, Jose Uribe, and Fred Daibes, who allegedly gave the senator bribes worth hundreds of thousands of dollars. According to the DOJ, the bribes were intended to protect the businessmen and to benefit Egypt.”
“Menendez faces up to 45 years in prison if convicted of the charges, which include conspiracy to commit bribery, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, and conspiracy to commit extortion under color of official right,” the report continued.
“Senate Democrats should all resign based on Senator Bob Menendez!” Trump stated on social media. “They all knew what was going on, and the way he lived.”
The former president went on to ask why the FBI didn’t launch a raid on the homes of Senate Democrats’ homes, though it’s important to note they did launch one on the home of Menendez. It was reported that federal agents ended up recovering “cash, gold, [a] luxury vehicle, and home furnishings” that are alleged to be part of the bribery scheme, according to information contained in the indictment.
Here’s more from the DW report:
Trump then said that what President Joe Biden had in “some of his many homes” was likely worse than what Menendez had in his home. Biden and his son Hunter have been accused of accepting millions of dollars in bribes from a Ukrainian energy executive in exchange taking action as then-vice president in the Obama administration.
“I wonder how much they got paid for Rigging the Election? Menendez is one of many, a small timer at that,” Trump stated. “EVERY DEMOCRAT SHOULD RESIGN FROM THE SENATE! Our Border’s are Broken, our Election’s are Rigged.”
“Menendez was previously indicted by the DOJ under the Obama administration in a case that alleged that he took bribes from Dr. Salomon Melgen, a wealthy Florida doctor, in exchange for political favors. Menendez was never convicted due to a hung jury — while a judge acquitted him of some charges — and the DOJ under Trump dropped the case,” the Daily Wire said.
Democrats are steeped so deep in corruption is it even possible to reach the roots where it all began? Can they be cleansed of the filth rotting away their party or should they be scrapped and replaced with something less radical and criminal in nature? Is it even possible to do that?
