Does Tom Malinowski Believe Bob Menendez or the FBI?

Press Release

Date: Oct. 15, 2018

The Lance for Congress campaign called on lifelong progressive Democrat Tom Malinowski to respond to new, shocking revelations released today showing FBI and U.S. Department of Justice documents detailing specific corroborated evidence of credible allegations that Senator Bob Menendez had sex with underage girls in the Dominican Republic.

The U.S. Department of Justice, in sworn federal court documents, said it had specific, corroborated allegations that Senator Menendez and convicted felon Dr. Salomon Melgen had sex with underage prostitutes.

In a 2013 affidavit, FBI special agent Gregory J. Sheehy said, "for several years, Senator Menendez had been traveling to the Dominican Republic to engage in sexual activity with prostitutes -- some of whom were minors."

These shocking charges demand a response from Tom Malinowski immediately, said Lance for Congress campaign manager Jim Hilk.

"Tom Malinowski likes to say that his Democratic Party is, 'the party of law enforcement in this country that is willing to trust the FBI over Fox News.' These allegations against Sen. Menendez were found to be credible by President Obama's Justice Department and backed by corroborating evidence. So the question for Tom Malinowski is: does he believe Bob Menendez or does he believe federal law enforcement?" asked Hilk.
