WASHINGTON, D.C. – Senator Peter Welch (D-VT) today released a statement following the indictment of Senator Bob Menendez:
“Senator Menendez is entitled to the presumption of innocence. But the people of New Jersey and the United States Senate are entitled to an effective Senator. The shocking and specific allegations against Senator Menendez have wholly compromised his capacity to be that effective Senator.
“I encourage Senator Menendez to resign.”
