Israeli investigators Recommend Charging Benjamin Netanyahu With Bribery

After a long probe, Israeli investigators recommended charging prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu with bribery in two separate cases.

He has denied any wrongdoing and in a televised speech on Tuesday, delivered minutes after the news broke, he vowed to stay in office.

The cases will now go to the attorney general—a Netanyahu appointee—who will decide whether to press charges, a process that could drag into next year.

Netanyahu will only be forced out of office if the attorney general decides to press charges and then, after a trial, he is convicted.

In a page from Donald Trump’s playbook, Netanyahu has berated the police for months, accusing them of bias and arguing that a top investigator should have recused himself in order to discredit the investigation.
