Binnall & Fahey to Newsmax: Dems Want Menendez Out to Save Seat

Trump attorney Jesse Binnall and former Assistant U.S. Attorney Jonathan Fahey told Newsmax Monday that Democrats are turning on recently-indicted Sen. Bob Menendez, D-N.J., because they want to retain the Senate seat going into next year’s elections.

“To suggest that people are asking him to resign for altruistic reasons doesn’t really hold a lot of water,” Fahey said during an appearance on Newsmax’s “The Chris Salcedo Show.” “They want him to resign now so the Democratic governor can appoint a Democratic replacement that will be well-positioned for the election next year.”

“The last thing they want is Menendez staying in office, getting re-nominated, and then that seat’s vulnerable,” he said. “So, this is all about one, harming Menendez, who’s more in the moderate wing, but two is saving this seat, and this is the way to save this seat to keep it a Democratic seat. That’s really what I think is behind this. It’s really nothing more than just pure political cynicism.”
