(FixThisNation.com) – Senator John Fetterman of Pennsylvania, a Democrat, has recently become a vocal opponent of Senator Bob Menendez, also a Democrat from New Jersey. Fetterman’s challenge to Menendez was highlighted during an interview with CNN’s Jake Tapper, where he expressed support for Menendez’s primary challenger, Representative Andy Kim of New Jersey, earlier in the week.
Fetterman has been critical of Menendez since the latter was indicted on bribery charges. These allegations include accepting $600,000 in bribes from three businessmen for political favors and acting as a foreign agent for Egypt. Further complicating matters, Menendez faced another indictment this month, accusing him of receiving gifts from Qatar’s government and assisting a real estate developer in securing investment funds from Qatar. Menendez has denied these accusations.
With these developments, Representative Kim entered the race, garnering Fetterman’s support. Fetterman, in a New York Times interview, praised Kim’s potential as a reliable Democratic vote, emphasizing the importance of maintaining a Democratic majority in the upcoming 2024 elections.
In his discussion with Tapper, Fetterman also spoke about his plans to introduce a resolution. This resolution aims to prevent senators indicted on national security charges from accessing classified briefings. Fetterman, expressing his disdain for what he perceives as corrupt behavior, mentioned his intention to seek unanimous consent for this resolution, specifically targeting those accused of acting as foreign agents.
While not directly confirming his plans to Tapper, Fetterman was adamant that Menendez, given the current allegations, should not have access to classified briefings, especially concerning nations he is allegedly involved with as a foreign agent. Fetterman’s stance reflects his commitment to integrity and security within the Senate.
