People briefed on the case say Attorney General Eric Holder has signed off on prosecutors' request to proceed with charges, CNN has learned exclusively. An announcement could come within weeks. Prosecutors are under pressure in part because of the statute of limitation on some of the allegations.

The case could pose a high-profile test of the Justice Department's ability to prosecute sitting lawmakers, having already spawned a legal battle over whether key evidence the government has gathered is protected by the Constitution's Speech and Debate clause.

The FBI and prosecutors from the Justice Department's public integrity section, have pursued a variety of allegations against Menendez, who has called the probe part of "smear campaign" against him.

This is what happens when you disagree with Obama. Menendez was very vocal about his disagreement with him over Iran and Cuba.

Remember when the press was portraying Obama as such a "nice" guy? He's a Chicago (or wherever he's really from) street thug, no better than Rahm Emmanuel and the rest of his nasty crew.

He's getting out the message to the Dems to not stray from the party line.

They do it openly and obviously, it is like they are daring anyone to try and stop them.

I'm sure Obama and company have something on everyone. This is their "ace in the hole". They use it to punish their political enemies.

Too bad Obama doesn't go after ISIS as aggressively as he does Americans who don't agree with him politically.

Nixon helped him out with some useful tools to control the masses, like the EPA.
