New Jersey Democratic Senator Robert Menendez faces another federal investigation about five years after a trial on federal corruption charges ended in a mistrial, a Menendez adviser confirmed Wednesday.

“Senator Menendez is aware of an investigation that was reported on today, however he does not know the scope of the investigation,” the adviser, Michael Soliman, said in an email. “As always, should any official inquiries be made, the senator is available to provide any assistance that is requested of him or his office.”
