PDF of the federal Indictment against Senator Menendez (D-NJ): https://njcorruption.files.wordpress.com/2017/04/the-indictment-of-senator-robert-menendez.pdf

Menendez’s co-defendant Salomon Melgen is currently on trial in Miami in a separate Medicare fraud case. The Palm Beach Post reports on April 11, 2017:

After spending weeks listening to people trash his diagnoses and treatment of elderly patients, insisting he used them to rake in millions from Medicare, Dr. Salomon Melgen smiled on Tuesday when a friendly face finally took the witness stand in federal court.

The announcement by Assistant U.S. Attorney Roger Stefin that prosecutors had wrapped up their month-long case against the wealthy, politically connected ophthalmologist paved the way for Melgen’s attorneys to begin defending him on 76 charges of health care fraud.


Their first witness — Lakeland retinal specialist Dr. Michael Tolentino — admitted he had never met the 62-year-old retinal specialist or reviewed any of the work he did at his four clinics in West Palm Beach, Wellington, Delray Beach and Port St. Lucie.
