Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) is under investigation by the Department of Justice for expensive gifts he allegedly received from a New Jersey business.

The gifts include a luxury Washington, D.C., apartment, a Mercedes-Benz, money, and jewelry, all valued in the tens of thousands of dollars, sources told NBC New York. The DOJ suspects that the gifts were given to Menendez by the Edgewater business IS EG Halal, which was granted a contract with the Egyptian government despite complaints that the business didn’t have the proper experience. The New Jersey Democrat serves as the Senate Foreign Relations Committee chairman and oversees billions in aid to the Egyptian government.

However, some suspect that the contract was granted by Menendez in a quid pro quo scheme. Damian Williams, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, AND FBI and IRS Criminal Investigation agents are working on the investigation.

Menendez said of the allegations last week, “I am sure it is going to end up in absolutely nothing.”

NBC News legal analyst Chuck Rosenberg said, “Prosecutors would obviously want to look if money, apartments, cars were given to the senator or someone close to him in return for one of his official acts.”

A spokeswoman for Wael Hana, IS EG Halal’s owner, issued a denial saying, “Allegations about cars, apartments, cash, and jewelry being provided by anyone associated with IS EG Halal to Senator Menendez or his wife at all, let alone in exchange for any kind of favorable treatment, are totally without basis.”
