Sen. Menendez has rejected calls to resign after his bribery indictment. He has maintained his innocence and said that he will fight the charges. He has also said that he is committed to serving his constituents and that he believes that the people of New Jersey will stand behind him.
Some people have criticized Menendez for refusing to resign, arguing that he has lost the moral authority to serve in the Senate. Others have defended Menendez, saying that he is entitled to a fair trial and that he should be presumed innocent until proven guilty.
It is unclear what will happen to Menendez’s career. He is facing serious charges, but he has also been acquitted of similar charges in the past. It is possible that he will be convicted and forced to resign, but it is also possible that he will be acquitted and continue to serve in the Senate.
Only time will tell what the future holds for Sen. Menendez.
