AP Source: Federal charges expected in Menendez case

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A person familiar with a federal investigation of Sen. Bob Menendez says the Justice Department is expected to bring criminal charges against the New Jersey Democrat in the coming weeks.

The disclosure comes as Menendez says he will answer questions from reporters in his home state after his office issued a statement saying all of his actions have been appropriate and lawful.

The person who disclosed the expected filing of charges did so on condition of anonymity because it is a pending investigation.

Menendez, who head of the Senate foreign relations committee until January, has been under investigation in a long-running probe.
