Durbin Statement On Senator Robert Menendez

BERLIN—U.S. Senate Democratic Whip Dick Durbin (D-IL) released the following statement regarding Senator Robert Menendez (D-NJ):

The issues before Senator Menendez are now legal ones and can only be resolved in a court of law, where all Americans are presumed innocent until proven otherwise. I believe it was the right decision for Senator Menendez to step aside from his committee leadership post until the matter is resolved.
