What is the political risk to Netanyahu? @AaronKleinShow.


"Israel’s police service formally recommended Tuesday that the country’s attorney general indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in two cases of alleged corruption.

But the prime minister is fighting back, declaring that the accusations are the result of a political campaign to remove him from power.

“I am sure that the truth will come to light and that in the next elections I will once again win your loyalty, with the help of God,” he said in a speech.

The left-wing Israeli daily Ha’aretz explains: “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.”"
