Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, were indicted Wednesday on corruption charges. A federal grand jury indictment accuses Menendez of using the power of his Senate seat to benefit Melgen, a wealthy Florida eye doctor who prosecutors say provided the senator with luxury vacations, airline travel, golf trips and tens of thousands of dollars in contributions to a legal defense fund.
