Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) held a press conference Monday saying he will not resign and is confident he will be exonerated of all charges. It was the Senator’s first public appearance since a federal indictment was unsealed against him alleging he used his position as Chairman of the Foreign Relations Committee to help Egypt in exchange for cash, gold bars and a Mercedes. Even fellow Democrats have joined the chorus of members of Congress calling on Senator Menendez to resign.
