As expected, New Jersey Democrat Senator Bob Menendez has been indicted on bribery and wire fraud charges.
Now I realize it's entirely possible Menendez might be guilty of what he is being accused of. But as I wrote aast month, this is what happens when you cross Obama.
Menendez had been the Democratic Party's most prominent critic of the Obama Administration's negotiations with Iran on a nuclear agreement and had got into the President's face about it during a Senate Democrat retreat in January.
Should an agreement be reached and Congress is compelled to take action they will be without one of the most forceful opponents of capitulation to Iran as he has temporarily resigned from the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Menendez's absence might also serve as a warning to other Democrats who might be tempted to cross Obama where it concerns a nuclear Iran.
