(Gateway Pundit) – Senator Bob Menendez (D-NJ) threatened to call the Capitol Police on a reporter for doing his job — asking questions about the radical Green New Deal.
Henry Rodgers, a Capitol Hill reporter for the Daily Caller, asked Senator Menendez about Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal on Wednesday.
Menendez exploded on the conservative reporter, calling him “trash,” then threatened to call the police.
HENRY RODGERS: “Not interested. I have nothing to say to the Daily Caller. You’re trash. I won’t answer questions to the Daily Caller, period! You’re trash! Don’t keep harassing me or I’ll call Capitol Police!,” Sen. Bob Menendez told me earlier today when I asked about the Green New Deal.

God forbid a reporter asks a Senator questions about a radical left-wing resolution that the Senate Majority Leader just announced will be brought to the Senate floor for a vote.
Many people reacted to Democrat Senator Bob Menendez’s hostility against the free press.

Not at all OK for a senator to be threatening a credentialed reporter on the Hill. Full stop. https://t.co/4fA95z8x7R

He’s human garbage and a criminal. The senate should have kicked his ass out years ago.

Yes, Bob Menendez is human garbage and should have been thrown out of the Senate years ago.
Allegations that Senator Bob Menendez paid for underage prostitutes during his trips to the Dominican Republic plagued him for years. Prosecutors declined to bring charges related to the prostitution claims, although a bribery case was pursued against him and ultimately ended in a mistrial.
FBI agents raided the offices of an eye doctor suspected of providing free trips and even underage Dominican Republic prostitutes to U.S. Sen. Bob Menendez
Prosecutors said the FBI was presented with specific corroborating allegations Menendez was paying for underage girls, yet he still got away with it.
