  • Sen. John Fetterman (D-PA) reiterated his push on Friday for the Senate to vote on expelling Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), deeming the criminal allegations against the New Jersey lawmaker “more sinister” than the charges faced by recently expelled Rep. George Santos (R-N.Y.).
  • Fetterman, in an interview on ABC’s “The View,” urged his Senate colleagues to remove Menendez, emphasizing the need for accountability and questioning the consistency in addressing allegations against members of Congress.
  • Fetterman has repeatedly called for Menendez to resign despite being a fellow Democrat.
