Sen. Robert Menendez, a New Jersey Democrat, has been indicted on federal corruption charges.
The indictment alleges that Menendez abused his office to benefit Salomon Melgen, a Florida eye doctor who was the senator's friend and donor. Menendez has always maintained his innocence.
During a press conference in Newark, New Jersey, Menendez said he was "confident that at the end of the day, I will be vindicated."
