From VOA News:
Netanyahu to be Charged in Corruption Cases, Pending Hearing
Last Updated: February 28, 2019 12:46 PM, by VOA News
Israel’s attorney-general intends to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in three corruption cases, Israeli TV said on Thursday, citing the Justice Ministry.

The reported decision, ahead of Israel’s April 9 election, deepens uncertainty over Netanyahu’s prospects in a tight race.

The actual filing of the reported charges, which include bribery, fraud and breach of trust, will depend on the outcome of a required hearing. At that hearing – likely after the election – Netanyahu can try to persuade the attorney-general not to indict him.

Netanyahu, who is seeking a fourth consecutive term, denies any wrongdoing. In the long-running investigations, he is suspected of wrongfully accepting gifts from wealthy businessmen and dispensing favors in alleged bids for favourable coverage by a newspaper and a website.

Netanyahu’s right-wing Likud party described the reported charges as “political persecution”. It said the prime minister, who has vowed not to resign over the allegations, was due to deliver a statement at 8 p.m“. https://www.voanews.com/a/israel-awaits-decision-on-netanyahu-corruption-indictment/4807655.html

Trump and Netanyahu are old friends. Now remember that even Donald Trump’s father was already friends with Netanyahu in the 1980s, as were Jared Kushner’s parents. Netanyahu was Israel’s UN Ambassador at the time.

Trump and Netanyahu are both facing corruption allegations; they have both been backed by Sheldon and Miriam Adelson, who gave at least $20 million to benefit Trump’s campaign, i.e. after he became the nominee.

Why does Dershowitz always feel like he has to put his two-bits worth in on Trump and Netanhayu? Does he protest too much? Trump’s in Epstein’s Little Black Book. Clinton isn’t, by the way. It was Clinton’s former assistant.
