Hi there,

Our generous Giving Tuesday triple match has been extended, which means your donation to Democracy Now! today will go 3x as far. If you give $10, we'll get $30 to support our independent journalism. Please don’t miss out on this opportunity to triple your impact. Democracy Now! is a free source of independent news for tens of millions of people around the world, but less than 1% of our global audience donates to support our critical reporting. Let’s pick up the percentage! We rely on you for support—not the oil, gas, coal and nuclear companies when we cover the climate crisis or the weapons manufacturers when we cover war. I hope you’ll give as much as you can today. Every dollar makes a difference. Thanks so much.
-Amy Goodman

Bob Menendez and Co-Defendants Plead Not Guilty to Bribery as 30 Dems Calls for His Resignation

HeadlineSep 28, 2023

New Jersey Senator Bob Menendez, his wife and two of his business associates have pleaded not guilty to federal bribery and extortion charges. Menendez was indicted on Friday, accused of using his position to increase U.S. assistance to Egypt and to do favors for New Jersey businessmen in exchange for mortgage payments, a luxury car, bars of gold and thousands of dollars in cash. It’s the second time in under a decade Menendez has been indicted on federal bribery and corruption charges. He has refused calls from at least 30 fellow Democrats to resign.
