FBI Probes Certain Foreign Relations

The FBI Tuesday night raided the West Palm Beach office of a doctor with close personal and political ties to Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), the new chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

Dr. Salomon Melgen was a key figure in the story the Daily Caller ran last November containing allegations that Menendez had consorted with prostitutes in the Dominican Republic (and allegedly stiffed them for payment). “The investigation is believed to be focusing on Melgen’s finances and the allegations about Menendez’s trips and contact with prostitutes,” the Herald reports.
