No wonder Bibi preferred Trump over President Obama.
Israeli Police Recommend Prime Minister Netanyahu Be Indicted On Corruption Charges
He could face indictment after a months long investigation into two separate allegations of corruption.
Remember when the Goopers invited NuttyYahoo to speak to Congress without informing then President Obama?
Remember how the Goopers were exuberant in their glee over the insult to President Obama?
The worm has turned.
Bibi is being charged by Israeli police with corruption.
Bibi and Trump like each other.
I can see why.
They are corrupt kindred spirits.
"Israeli police have recommended that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu be indicted on corruption charges, after police agreed last week there was sufficient evidence to charge him, Israeli media reported Tuesday. Netanyahu responded to the reports in a live address Tuesday afternoon, saying he will continue to lead Israel and that the recommendations against him will 'end with nothing.' ”
(Yes, of course, Bibi. That's what your pal Trump's been saying for the past 13 months about the Russia scandal.)
"The nation’s prime minister since 2009, he could face indictment after a monthslong investigation into two separate allegations of corruption. The police findings will be examined by state prosecutors and the attorney general, which could take months, The New York Times reported.
In a first case, known as Case 1000, investigators have looked at whether Netanyahu accepted bribes from billionaire donors, including Israeli-born Hollywood producer Arnon Milchan.
In Case 2000, Netanyahu faced claims he entered into a deal with the publisher of the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper in which he would receive favorable coverage in exchange for weakening a rival publication by restricting its circulation.
Both the prime minister and the publisher, Arnon Mozes, have denied that the conversations, leaked in transcripts to the media, were serious discussions."
(Of course, it's the "We were only joking" defense employed often by the Trumpistas.)
