Dr. Salomon Melgen Held Without Bond Despite ‘Friends’ Harry Reid and Robert Menendez in High Places

Senator Robert Menendez and Dr. Salomon Melgen are under indictment on federal corruption charges. But a third key player, the man who actually organized a controversial 2012 meeting, is Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV). He's being protected by a selective Department of Justice, a stonewalling Capitol Police, and a compliant and incurious mainstream media and remains unindicted. He's even threatening to hijack the United States Senate and force a vote on the controversial Attorney General nomination of Loretta Lynch.
Reid's involvement highlights the seriousness of the problem he may have dealing with a member in his ranks who’s expected to be indicted within weeks.

The scale of Sen. Harry Reid’s injuries—a damaged, perhaps destroyed, right eye, a broken bone above the left eye, a battered right jaw sporting a large black and blue and purple bruise, and several broken ribs—were far beyond the scale of any injuries that could arise from merely having the end of a resistance band snap back.

FDIC Chairman in Hot Seat Over Operation Choke Point

Tuesday’s subcommittee hearing on Operation Choke Point is likely to be just the beginning of even stronger efforts by members of Congress to call executive agencies to account for their ongoing abuses of power as part of Operation Choke Point. Whether Congress will choose to exercise its constitutional authority and fire out-of-control executive bureaucrats as a first step in reasserting its legitimate powers remains to be seen.
