There was a lot of evidence that this was about to happen.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was formally charged with bribery, fraud and breach of trust on Thursday, making him the first Israeli premier to be indicted while in office and sending Israel’s already stalemated political system into further disarray.

Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit capped almost three years of investigation and months of speculation by handing down a 63-page indictment against the country’s longest-serving prime minister and its center of political gravity for the last decade.

The cases against Netanyahu center on police allegations that the prime minister and his wife, Sara, accepted more than $260,000 worth of luxury goods in exchange for political favors and that Netanyahu interceded with regulators and lawmakers on behalf of two media companies in exchange for positive news stories.

Netanyahu has steadfastly denied wrongdoing during a wide-ranging probe that he has repeatedly dismissed as a politically motivated “witch hunt.”

“Witch hunt” now where have I heard THAT before?

Netanyahu is a crook, and everybody knows that he is a crook.

And that is why President Obama kept him at arm’s length, and likely why Donald Trump calls him “friend.”

    While insisting that he’s sincerely working to fight corruption at home and abroad, Trump said, “I do want, always, corruption — I say that to anybody!”

      “on top of that, it’s very clear that the president’s unprecedented erection of a stone wall in which he directs everybody connected to the White House and connected to the State Department not to testify, not to comply with subpoenas, not to do what Mr. Holmes and Dr. (Fiona) Hill (former top policy adviser on Russia for the National Security Council) did today, and that is not to tell the truth, not to come forward, that amounts to contempt of Congress,” – “It’s a far more sweeping and serious violation of the separation of powers.”

    ” Netanyahu was accused of working a deal to get positive coverage for himself. “The deal never went through, but the law has crimes of attempted bribery and breach of trust which can apply even if a deal does not go through.”

    Yeah. It’s almost poetry.

    Surprise! “Witch hunt” is code for “I did it and they caught me, oh and bribery!” in some political circles. And “No quid pro quo” and “No deal” are worthless defenses.”

    $urprise! $urprise! $urprise!

    FB>”As New York Times columnist Bret Stephens said, “Trump knows that the number needed to spell his moral defeat on impeachment is four.
    If Mitt Romney, Susan Collins, Lisa Murkowski and one other Republican join the Democrats to convict, the political humiliation will be thunderous.””
