So how could these remarks be interpreted ? Couldn't this mean more trouble for him ?

Menendez to political opponents: ‘I know who you are’
By Priscilla DeGregory and Kaja Whitehouse November 16, 2017

Sen. Bob Menendez

Senator Robert Menendez wasted no time in sending a warning shot to his political adversaries after being freed — for now — from bribery charges
“To those of you who were digging my political grave so you could jump into my seat, I know who you are and I won’t forget you,” the senior senator said outside of Newark federal court on Thursday.
“I’ve made my share of mistakes but my mistakes were never a crime,” he said.
Menendez made the comments after Newark federal judge William Walls declared a mistrial because the jury said it remained hopelessly deadlocked following four days of deliberations.
“I find you are unable to reach a verdict and that further deliberations are futile,” Judge William Walls said shortly before 1 pm on Thursday. “There is no alternative but to declare a mistrial,” he said before dismissing the jurors after more than two
months of service.
