The federal corruption trial of Sen. Bob Menendez is expected to resume Tuesday following a delay due to a COVID-19 issue.
Testimony was expected to resume Monday in New York federal court -- but the case remains on hold as a co-defendant recovers from the illness. This is the third day the trial was delayed.
Last week, the prosecution's key witness, Jose Uribe, took the stand. Uribe admitted to bribing Menendez and the senator’s wife, Nadine Menendez.
U.S. Attorney Philip R. Sellinger testified on June 12 that Menendez sought to discuss the prosecution of a New Jersey real estate developer with him before recommending him to the post after Joe Biden won the 2020 presidential election.
The senator has denied any wrongdoing.
