WASHINGTON - New Jersey Sen. Bob Menendez and his wife have been indicted on bribery charges.

The United State Justice Department says the Democratic senator and his wife, Nadine Arslanian Menendez, are facing charges in connection with their "corrupt" relationship with three New Jersey businessmen.

Prosecutors have specifically been investigating whether the pair allegedly received improper gifts, including gold bars, $480 thousand in cash and a luxury vehicle.

Menendez is the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

He's denied any wrongdoing.

This is the second time Menendez has faced corruption-related charges in the past ten years.

He previously fought off accusations of conspiracy and bribery related to alleged personal favors.
