Former President Donald Trump has called on Senate Democrats to resign in the wake of the corruption charges against Senator Bob Menendez. In a post on his Truth Social page, Trump questioned why the FBI had not raided Democrats’ homes like they did at Mar-a-Lago. He suggested that Senate Democrats were aware of Menendez’s actions and should all step down from their positions.

As a conservative writer, it is clear that Trump is using this scandal to criticize Democrats and highlight what he sees as a double standard in how the FBI investigates different political parties. Trump’s mention of Joe Biden and his alleged wrongdoing further adds to his argument that corruption runs rampant among Democrats. It is worth noting that several Democrats have already called for Menendez’s resignation following the indictment, including New Jersey Governor Phil Murphy. However, Menendez has denied any wrongdoing and stated that he will not resign. As this story develops, it will be interesting to see how both sides of the aisle respond and if any further action is taken against Menendez.
