Israeli police recommend bribery charges against Trump’s buddy Benjamin Netanyahu in two corruption cases because he acted contrary to “public interests.”
Haaretz: The two cases are the so-called Case 1000 – in which Netanyahu is suspected of accepting lavish gifts from wealthy benefactors in return for advancing their interests – and Case 2000, which alleges that Netanyahu tried to strike a deal that would have provided him with positive coverage in Israel’s second largest newspaper, Yedioth Ahronoth, in exchange for hurting its free rival, Israel Hayom.
According to the police, in the so-called Case 1000, Netanyahu received – by demand and systematically – champagne, cigars, jewelry and clothing, valued at over one million shekels. The gifts he received from the Israeli-American Hollywood product Arnon Milchan increased significantly once Netanyahu was elected prime minister.
Of course, Trump’s buddy Benjamin Netanyahu is trending on Twitter:
BTW: Some evidence obtained by Israel Police on Bibi corruption came from US Intelligence.
Obama & Netanyahu were never close… But Bibi may have crossed a line when he threatened to give Trump evidence that US secretly drove UN Resolution condeming Israeli settlements (Dec16). https://t.co/t93p1bPzjT
