Attorneys filed the motion over the weekend accusing judge of unfairly limiting what evidence or witnesses they could present

Menendez: "I am deeply disappointed that it came to the point that my lawyers had to make the motion they made today"

Wednesday's testimony revolved around what Menendez did and didn't report on Senate ethics forms over several years

Defendants argued charges should be dropped because they didn't meet narrower definition of bribery under 2016 US Supreme Court ruling

Dr. Salomon Melgen has already been convicted of Medicare Fraud earlier this year in Florida

Menendez is charged with accepting free plane rides and luxury hotel stays from Florida eye doctor

Former Democratic Iowa Sen. Tom Harkin testified he met with a donor at Menendez's request but didn't take any further action

Prosecutors say the donor, Florida ophthalmologist Salomon Melgen, paid for the flight because his private jet was unavailable

Conviction could alter makeup of deeply divided Senate if Menendez expelled by two-thirds vote or decides to step down

‘Who cares whether the senator opted for a more expensive room? What is the point to be made?’, asks the judge
