Netanyahu to be indicted for bribery, fraud, breach of trust

Source: Axios

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu will face indictments in all three corruption charges against him ó for bribery, fraud, and breach of trust, according to Israeli officials.

Why it matters: The looming indictments have plunged Israel into a political deadlock following an inconclusive election two months ago. Netanyahu and Benny Gantz both failed to form coalitions, and a proposed national unity government has been blocked because Gantz refuses to serve under a prime minister facing corruption charges and Netanyahu refuses to step aside as prime minister because the indictments threaten his political survival.

5. NBC News link:

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/israeli-pm-netanyahu-indicted-charges-bribery-fraud-breach-trust-n1084831

Israelís Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit announced Thursday that he was indicting Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust.

Netanyahu has previously denied any wrongdoing and has said he is the victim of a politically orchestrated "witch-hunt" by the media and the left.


It comes while Netanyahu is serving as Israel's caretaker prime minister after he failed to cobble together a government last month.

Netanyahu had hoped to pass legislation that would prevent him from being indicted but has been unable to do so because he failed to form Israelís next government following the Sept. 17 election.

10. It has taken a long time to get Netanyahu to this point

He had support of many politicians, similar to the situation here. He has been a crook, like donny, for many years, he should have been indicted 20 years ago.

looking at making the name "trump" to be about the same as "hitler" or "stalin" and nothing in this world would have "trump" on the name plate except for trump towers in Moscow

until that is test at the SC level but no doubt when he is out, he is free game.

any president a free pass from state and local prosecution, Its just we have never had a crook like trump before

32. Good reason to be skeptical, but the actual indictment is new. And he still hasn't been able

to form a new government.

So the prospects for him actually leaving office for good (and going to prison) have improved, though granted, still not certain.

This has been going on since I think 2015??? Maybe 2013??? Too many people would read "expected to be indicated" as "indicted".
