Flight records obtained by Breitbart News show Democratic Party donor Dr. Salomon Melgen’s private jet was in New Jersey near Sen. Bob Menendez’s home on April 8, 2012–Easter Sunday last year. From there, it flew straight to the Dominican Republic.
Menendez and his staff have not answered when asked repeatedly whether the Senator was on that flight. They also have not provided any accounting as to where Menendez was on Easter Sunday, either.
The flight records show Melgen’s plane was in the Dominican Republic on a frequent basis. The jet was there in late March until April 2, at which point Melgen’s plane flew from La Romana International airport in the Dominican Republic to West Palm Beach, Florida. The flight path records, compiled by FlightAware, show Melgen’s plane stayed in West Palm Beach for a few days after that.
Melgen lives in the West Palm Beach area.
On April 6, 2012, Melgen’s plane left Palm Beach International airport for The Dominican Republic’s La Romana International Airport again. It stayed on the ground there for half an hour–after landing at around 6 p.m. Atlantic Standard Time. The plane took off and flew back to West Palm Beach that evening.
