Van Hollen Statement on Senator Menendez

Today, U.S. Senator Chris Van Hollen (D-Md.) released the following statement regarding Senator Bob Menendez:

“Having served with Senator Menendez in the Senate, I have seen his hard work on behalf of the people of New Jersey. Now, as he faces serious, specific, and deeply concerning criminal charges, he is entitled to the presumption of innocence and due process. However, as a public servant, he has a duty to uphold the standard of public trust and to protect the integrity of the institution of the Senate and, for those reasons, it is best that he step down.”
