On Tuesday evening, the FBI raided the office of a physician in Florida who is linked to Democratic Senator Robert Menendez. The New Jersey Senator was accused by prostitutes in the Dominican Republic of paying for sex in the doctor's mansion.

The following statement was released by the Office of U.S. Senator Robert Menendez today:

"Dr. Melgen has been a friend and political supporter of Senator Menendez for many years. Senator Menendez has traveled on Dr. Melgen’s plane on three occasions, all of which have been paid for and reported appropriately. Any allegations of engaging with prostitutes are manufactured by a politically-motivated right-wing blog and are false."
