BREAKING: Benjamin Netanyahu to be Indicted

He faces several charges relating to his conduct in office.

According to NBC News, “Israel’s attorney general announced Thursday that his office had indicted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on corruption charges after a two-year investigation. The prime minister faces one count of bribery and two counts of fraud and breach of trust.”

NBC reports that the indictment comes after regulatory changes were connected with some sketchy business dealings and media pressure.

They also add that “the indictment marks the first time in Israeli history that a sitting prime minister has been charged with a crime.”

Of course, this indictment is not without political intrigue.

The Times of Israel reported that Netanyahu’s Party, Likud, is denouncing the indictment as “political persecution.”

The Times says “Nobody is surprised by the attorney general’s announcement that came after three years of relentless pressure on him by the media, the left and judiciary bureaucrats to indict the prime minister at any cost — even when there isn’t anything, just to have it happen before the elections,” Likud says in a statement released immediately after Mandelblit’s announcement.”

Prime Minister Netanyahu is supposed to make a statement soon.
