A federal jury in New Jersey informed the judge Monday that it is deadlocked on all 12 counts in Sen.

Walls chose to send the jury home an hour early and asked it to continue deliberations Tuesday morning.

"You are starting fresh", Judge William Walls told the jury.

Menendez has denied any bribery arrangement. Menendez attorney Abbe Lowell told Walls he should declare it a hung jury and "thank them for their service".

Russia's RT America registers as 'foreign agent' in USA - editor
Foreign media companies are generally exempt from registration unless they are controlled by a foreign government. RT said it complied with a USA demand to make the filing by November 13 or face prosecution.

Prosecutors say the senator took gifts such as a luxury hotel stay, private flights and hundreds of thousands of dollars in campaign donations from Melgen and in return Menendez acted as the doctor's "personal senator", advocating on his behalf on various government matters.

Last week a juror named Evelyn Arroyo-Maultsby was dismissed because she had a previously scheduled vacation to the Bahamas coming up. On Monday, an alternate was brought in to replace her.

"I wish her a great vacation, I wish she hadn't left, but I hope that no juror in the jury room feels bullied by another juror", Menendez said. The only question remaining is how many more days the judge will demand jurors deliberate before he throws in the towel and declares a mistrial.

Although jurors are supposed to tune out of media coverage related to the Menendez trial, some jurors told Walls on Monday that they had heard Arroyo-Maultsby's remarks. "I'm concerned about some of the comments she made ... the environment in the jury room". Bob Menendez has deadlocked, but the judge is still pushing for a verdict. The Democrats have 48 seats in the Senate compared to Republicans' 52. If that happens, the Department of Justice could refile the charges. The prosecutors at that time would choose whether to retry the case. If he's cleared of all wrongdoing, or at the very least, able to keep sentencing at bay until after January 16, 2018 - when GOP Gov. Chris Christie leaves office - Republicans would lose any leverage to push for his ouster.
