Senator Bob Menendez was charged by the Department of Justice with conspiracy for allegedly acting as an agent of the Egyptian government and accepting bribes.

The charges include accepting cash, gold bars, and a luxury car from businessmen in New Jersey.

Menendez has pleaded not guilty and refused to resign from the Senate.

“Prosecutors said the senator and his wife, Nadine Menendez, accepted bribes of cash, gold bars and a luxury car over the past five years from three New Jersey businessmen in exchange for a variety of corrupt acts,” according to the Associated Press.

“Agents seized 13 bars of gold bullion, a luxury Mercedes-Benz and more than $550,000 in cash — including tens of thousands of dollars stuffed in envelopes, one of which held the fingerprints of Mr. Menendez and a co-defendant accused of providing bribes, according to the indictment,” The New York Times reported.

A dossier claimed that his former lover, Cecilia Reynolds, saw bundles of cash in his home in 2007.

The dossier also alleged intimate details and kickback schemes involving Menendez.

“She knows a lot of intimate stuff about Menendez and even knows federal and state secrets and all about his kickback schemes etc.,” the document said.

“She boasted to her friends that he always had bundles of cash lying around in his safe and hidden places. She was told by him that he has kickbacks from contractors and influence seeking people,” it continued.

Menendez was previously indicted on corruption charges related to gifts from ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen, but the case ended without a verdict.
