A number of high-ranking Democratic senators combined to contribute tens of thousands of dollars to Sen. Robert Menendez's (D., N.J.) campaign committee this year, a review of Federal Election Commission records shows.

Menendez, who was indicted in April 2015, is currently facing 12 counts of corruption charges that include bribery. Prosecutors have said that the senator had a "corrupt pact" with Salomon Melgen, a wealthy Florida eye doctor, a previous donor to Menendez's campaign.
