Juror in Sen. Bob Menendez Trial Asks ‘What Is a Senator?’

This country needs an intellectual revival, and I mean sooner rather than later. During the trial of New Jersey senator Bob Menendez, one juror asked a question that would’ve flunked any sixth-grade civics student.

If a juror can sit through a trial dealing with an elected official, and one of their questions to the judge is “What Is A Senator?”, then the future of our country is quickly becoming undone.

Boy, did the defense hit the jackpot when they got this person on the panel. Since he doesn’t know what a senator is, there could be no bribe and therefore Menendez is not guilty. But the truth is, with the U.S. Senate absolutely failing to pass the Trump agenda after nearly a year, it makes sense that nobody knows what a senator is anymore. They don’t do anything!

I think senators are lawmakers, but most of them do better as lawbreakers. Most senators meet in D.C. and manage to do nothing year after year and get fabulously wealthy doing it. This is why Nancy Pelosi said, “But we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it.” They know some people will believe it. Back in the day, she would have never gotten away with it.

I smell a mistrial coming.

Via Bloomberg: “On their first full day of jury deliberations at the bribery trial of Senator Robert Menendez, a juror asked the judge a basic question: What is a senator? U.S. District Judge William Walls declined to answer the question, and he refused that juror’s request for a transcript of Monday’s closing argument by Menendez’s attorney, Abbe Lowell.”

I’ve long given up on the notion of universal suffrage. Some people are so stupid or ignorant that should not be permitted anywhere near a voting booth. Sadly, some of these people are in Congress. Hank “Guam may tip over” Johnson comes immediately to mind.

Amazing stuff. The dumbing down has been pushed for decades by liberals and Hollywood. They are still Americans though. You can bet on the attorneys to select people that can be swayed easily. The justice system is corrupt.

  • I thought New Jersey had one of the best education systems in the U.S. I guess American Government classes are electives in that area of the country.

  • i had a suit against the local county here a long time ago and several of the juors had to ask the judge what the burden of proof comment met. the judge had already found in my favot and then turned it over to a jury to award me money, they were confused by the judge telling them he had determined that i had met the burden of proof proving the the county was neglegent, they can back and awarded me nothing , they couldnt figure out the burden of proof thing so they awarded me zero dollars. talk about stupid, but i am from oregon so good chance 80% of the jury was stoned off their asses!

  • Seems to me the judge doesn't know either, or he would have answered the question, and provided the records requested. Where did he get his law degree, off a cereal box?

    • really his position in government should not matter if he is a senator congressman or a paige its about corruption not his standing in the government. a judge should have told the person not to worry about that just worry about if they thought he was proved corrupt or not! i see an apeal of mist trial coming because of that question. they are making it about politics instead of about corruption!

  • Oh my....ignoramuses' like that deserve to live under a dictatorship....NO doubt that juror is a democrat.

  • If this juror is really that dumb, then no doubt its a registered DNC-Bolshevik and doesn't understand criminal wrong doing, right from wrong, etc.

    Need to do like that movie the Untouchables and switch juries with another courtroom. This one was obviously fixed.
