U.S. Senator Cory Booker (D-N.J.) said he plans to remain a staunch partner of his colleague, indicted U.S. Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ).
“Senator Menendez has never wavered in his commitment to the people of New Jersey,’ said Booker in a statement. “He’s been an invaluable resource and a mentor to me since I arrived in the Senate. Our system of justice is designed to be fair and impartial, and it presumes innocence before guilt. I won’t waver in my commitment to stand alongside my senior Senator to serve our great state. Our nation and state face critical issues and I will continue to partner with Senator Menendez to take on the challenges before us.”
