Senator Bob Menendez Cleared of Corruption Charges
Senator Bob Menendez has been cleared of corruption charges after a two-year legal battle.
The Department of Justice had accused Menendez of accepting bribes from a wealthy donor in exchange for political favors.
The trial ended in a hung jury in 2017, and the DOJ decided to drop the charges earlier this year.
Menendez has maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal.
The senator has been a vocal critic of President Trump and his policies.
Menendez is up for re-election in November and is expected to win.
The outcome of the trial is seen as a victory for Menendez and a blow to the DOJ's efforts to crack down on political corruption.
