Reid Defends Menendez Amid DOJ Investigation

Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid did not want to deal in “hypotheticals” on Tuesday when asked repeatedly about Sen. Robert Menendez’s future, calling the New Jersey Democrat an “outstanding” senator and a “stalwart” former committee chairman.

“I try very carefully to not deal in hypotheticals, let’s wait and see what happens before we start speculating on what should happen if something happens,” Reid said. “Let’s wait until we have some real facts before us.”
