Dr. Salomon Melgen
New Jersey Sen. Robert Menendez may be making an unanticipated trip to the Dominican Republic. A judge wants to hear from him about a prostitute’s statement that she was paid to falsely claim she had sex with him.
The disclosure reflects the latest intersection between the New Jersey Democrat who is the subject of an ethics inquiry on Capitol Hill and the Florida doctor involved in a federal criminal investigation.
Menendez met with reporters Monday evening for the first time since the allegations spread after the FBI last week raided the offices of a Florida ophthalmologist, Dr. Salomon Melgen.
A conservative website — The Daily Caller — posted interviews with two prostitutes who claim Sen. Bob Menendez paid them for sex in the Dominican Republic.
