The FBI on Tuesday night raided the office of a Florida doctor with ties to Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), the Miami Herald reported. “The investigation is believed to be focusing on Melgen’s finances and the allegations about Menendez’s trips and contact with prostitutes,” according to the Herald.
In November, The Daily Caller published interviews with two purported prostitutes from the Dominican Republic who claimed to have had sex with Menendez at a home Melgen owns in Casa de Campo. Menendez has flown on Melgen’s private plane at least once, according to the Miami Herald, when he was chairman of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee. Melgen has contributed money to Menendez’s political campaigns and the DSCC.
Menendez told the The Daily Caller on Monday that he was “not going to respond to the fallacious allegations” of the conservative news site’s story.
