Senate Democrats are expected to fight that, arguing that New Jersey's next governor - which is highly expected to be Democrat Phil Murphy - name a new senator once he takes office in January. Bob Menendez of New Jersey "sold his office for a lifestyle he couldn't afford".
"Just this year, Senator Menendez has made the following contributions: $5,000 to Senator Chris Murphy (D-CT), $10,000 to Senator Jon Tester (D-MT), $10,000 to Senator Debbie Stabenow (D-MI), $10,000 to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY), $5,000 to Senator Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), and $10,000 to Senator Tim Kaine (D-VA)", America Rising notes. "These two men refer to each other as brothers", Lowell said of Menendez and Melgen, who often traveled together, sometimes with their families.
"Who knows who else will be implicated, but it's clear now that the corruption extended beyond Menendez's office", said Michael Ahrens, a spokesman for the Republican National Committee. A Democrat has a large polling and financial advantage in November's election to replace Christie.
Prosecutors also say Melgen allowed Menendez to make ten trips to the Dominican Republic on the Florida doctor's private jet, and then stay at the doctor's luxury resort for free.

The last time the Justice Department sought to convict a sitting USA senator, they won a conviction only to see the entire case blow up spectacularly months later amid allegations of prosecutorial misconduct. Booker was in court on Wednesday to support him.

"For years, Dr. Melgen knowingly made false diagnoses and submitted fraudulent bills in order to illegally line his pockets with millions of dollars intended for the legitimate diagnosis and treatment of Medicare patients", stated Acting U.S. Attorney Benjamin G. Greenberg.

The digital ad push, which will run on Facebook and Twitter, presses Democratic leaders in Congress, Senate Democrats up for 2018 re-election in states President Donald Trump won and Democratic senators, like Warren, who are rumored to be considering 2020 presidential bids, to answer whether to believe Menendez should keep his U.S. Senate seat if convicted.
When attorney Abbe Lowell pointed out that the motion was filed according to the judge's order from last December, Walls replied, "Fine".
Menendez has vehemently denied the allegations.
Walls also chided defense attorneys for filing a motion on what to include in jury instructions at the end of the trial. His successor would be appointed by the governor of New Jersey, now Republican Chris Christie.
