The great Israel Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was served indictment charges for bribery by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit on Thursday. Netanyahu responded back claiming this is a leftists witch hunt.
The Daily Caller reported, “Mandelbilt announced that his office was charging Netanyahu with two counts of fraud and breach of trust and one count of bribery. Police allege that the prime minister accepted “gifts” from billionaires, had a “bribe-based” relationship with Israeli tech giant Bezeq and offered legislation that would have benefited one of the biggest newspapers in the country in exchange for positive coverage, NBC News reported.”
Netanyahu stated, “The Left knows they cannot compete with these achievements in the voting booth, so they put massive pressure on the attorney general to indict even though there is nothing, in order to influence the elections and put the Left in charge.”
Netanyahu continued, “I’ve never seen the Left so happy.”
Netanyahu family has been through “seven circles of hell” the last “three years,” Netanyahu continued, “I am not being given the chance to disprove [the accusations] until after the election — and I will disprove them all.”
Netanyahu concluded, “I plan to continue serving you as prime minister for many more years, but it’s up to you, not the bureaucrats or the commentators and reporters. Don’t let the witch hunt confuse you,” he concluded.
It is unclear if Netanyahu has committed any crimes with evidence not being provided to the public. It is fair to assume Netanyahu may be under an unfair attack from the left in Israel similar to what we see the left doing to President Trump.
