FILE - In this April 18, 2013, file photo, Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J., asks a question of Secretary of State John Kerry as he testifies on Capitol Hill in Washington, before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing to examine national security and foreign policy priorities in the fiscal 2014 international affairs budget. An ethical cloud is following Menendez in Washington, even as he plays starring roles in some of Congress most fraught domestic and foreign policy dramas. The New Jersey Democrat leads the Senate’s Foreign Affairs Committee as clashes with Syria, Iran and North Korea come to the forefront. At home, the Cuban-American senator is at the center of the immigration reform fight that’s captivating Capitol Hill. (AP Photo/Molly Riley, File) less
