(RestoreAmericanGlory.com) – In December 2018, Nadine Arslanian Menendez, indicted Sen. Bob Menendez’s (D-N.J.) wife, reportedly hit a man while driving her Mercedes-Benz, which resulted in the man’s death.
According to the police report, she was found not to be at fault in relation to the death of Richard Koop, who had been jaywalking during the incident. Following a brief statement with the Bogota police while at the scene, she was allowed to leave without being given a DUI test. The interaction between Menendez and the Bogota police was captured by the dashcam footage.
The dashcam footage also showed a man who claimed to be a retired officer who had come to the scene as a “favor” to a friend whose wife knew Arslanian.
At the time of the accident, Arslanian and Menendez were not yet married, but they were dating. According to the medical examiner in Bergen County, the accident resulted in the severe mutilation of Koop’s body.
On Wednesday, Menendez remarked that this was a “tragic accident” and that the family of the deceased was in their thoughts.
The Menendez couple is currently facing a federal indictment that was brought forth by the New York Southern District U.S. attorney. The indictment relates to a federal bribery scheme, as it has been revealed that in January 2019, around a month after the car accident, Arslanian let two Egyptian-American businessmen, Jose Uribe and Wael Hana, know that she did not have a vehicle any more. In response to this, Hana gave her a 2019 Mercedes-Benz, which has a value of over $60,000. The car is part of the indictment.
