Robert Menendez Shrugs Off Injury to Champion Ukraine Plan

Senate Foreign Relations Chairman Robert Menendez didn’t let something as trivial as being struck by a taxi late Thursday derail his defense of a Ukrainian aid package that faced its own obstacles.

Menendez spokeswoman Tricia Enright told HOH the New Jersey Democrat got hit just outside Union Station while racing to catch a 6 p.m. train home.

“Legs buckled and he fell,” she said of the jarring incident. “He got up and ‘ran’ to the train but it had left.”

Rather than lick his wounds, Enright said Menendez called staff to swing back by to get him so he could rejoin the fray on the Senate floor.

Having said his piece for the second time, Menendez once again departed the Capitol, finally making it — safely — onto the northbound Amtrak train scheduled to roll out at 7 p.m.
