This is not just about keeping silent to allow the Democrats to hang themselves with an allegedly corrupt senator within their midst. No, it's more about protecting Menendez who although a Democrat, has always held a special place in the heart of his GOP colleagues who know he stands strong with them on issues such as supporting Netanyahu's version of an ideal middle east and his Iran tirades while denigrating Obama, and of course, on the Cuban issue, for which Menendez has a special interest based on his ethnicity and Cuban roots.
