Justice Department to retry Sen. Robert Menendez following mistrial on bribery charges

The Justice Department has made the plans to put Senator Robert Menendez back on trial on corruption charges, according to a new court filing Friday.

According to The Washington Post, The decision comes after a mistrial last year in which some jurors wanted to acquit the lawmaker. In November of 2017, the trial in Newark federal court of Menendez and his co-defendant, Dr. Salamon Melgen, ended in a hung jury.

On Friday public corruption prosecutors from the justice department filed a notice in federal court saying they want a retrial “at the earliest possible date,” according to The Washington Post.
