New details have emerged surrounding former Senator and Democrat Robert Menendez as his trial goes on. Menendez was indicted by a federal grand jury on corruption charges stemming from a cozy relationship with his friend Florida ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen. Recently the jury in Senator Robert Menende'z corruption trial found out about his taste for high-end Parisian hotels, and now yesterday more testimony tells about how Senator Menendez was living a life of luxury thanks to his friend the ophthalmologist in Florida.

The 2010 Cessna flight required three legs, including two legs with no passengers to get to Menendez in West Palm Beach and then back to the airport hangar in Islip, NY, the according to witness Jeffrey Wardenaar, who arranged the flight."
