MSNBC host Alicia Menendez addressed on television Saturday evening the scandal that her father, Sen. Bob Menendez (D-NJ), is facing after being indicted earlier this month on federal corruption charges.

The federal indictment against Bob Menendez and his wife was unsealed last week and accused the senator and his wife of accepting bribes from three business people in exchange for actions that he took as chairman of the powerful Senate Foreign Relations Committee. According to the DOJ, the bribes — which included hundreds of thousands of dollars in cash, gold bars, a luxury car, and more — were intended to protect the businessmen and to benefit Egypt.

Bob Menendez faces up to 45 years in prison if convicted of the charges, which include conspiracy to commit bribery, conspiracy to commit honest services fraud, and conspiracy to commit extortion under color of official right.

Alicia Menendez said on her show, “American Voices with Alicia Menendez,” which has been on MSNBC for three years, that she will not be reporting on the case.

“Hey everyone, I’m Alicia Menendez. Welcome to American Voices,” she began. “We have a lot to get to tonight, but I want to begin on a personal note.”

“Last week, a grand jury indicted U.S. Senator Bob Menendez,” she continued. “This past week, dozens of members of his own party have demanded his resignation. I have been watching, along with all of you, as a citizen and also as his daughter. I will not be reporting on the legal case.”

“That said, my colleagues across MSNBC and NBC News, they have aggressively covered the story, and they’ll continue to do so, as they should,” she concluded on the matter.
