FILE - In this Jab. 24, 2013 file photo, Sen. Robert Menendez, D-N.J. is seen on Capitol Hill in Washington. Emails between Menendez's office and the Homeland Security Department describe efforts by the New Jersey Democrat in January to thwart any U.S. donations of cargo-screening equipment to the government of the Dominican Republic. Donated equipment could have jeopardized a Dominican port security contract benefiting a close Menendez associate and fundraiser. (AP Photo/J. Scott Applewhite, File)
