Menendez steps down as Foreign Relations chairman after indictment

  • Menendez and his spouse are facing three criminal counts, including conspiracy to commit bribery, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, and conspiracy to commit extortion. This is not the first time Menendez has faced charges of accepting bribes, as he previously stepped down in 2015 due to similar allegations.
