Netanyahu says bribery charges 'slanted', full of holes

Netanyahu says bribery charges 'slanted', full of holes

"If Netanyahu is cleared - and given the weakness of the charges against him, it's hard to see how he can be indicted - then the police will lose their credibility and the public trust", concluded Glick.

He said the police report "misleads" and is "contrary to the truth and logic". The owner of the competing paper has confirmed in his testimony that Mr Netanyahu approached him with a request not to expand the circulation of his publication. Several years ago, USA officials rejected his request for a renewed visa, and Netanyahu lobbied US officials including then-Secretary of State John Kerry to issue it.

"Someone with such serious accusations against them, many of which he does not even deny, can not continue to serve as prime minister with responsibility for the security and well-being of Israel's citizens", Lapid said.

The attorney general, who has the final say on whether to indict Netanyahu, has sharply criticized the police for rushing to recommend that the attorney general indict Netanyahu on bribery charges, Israel's Hadashot news reported on Wednesday.

Wearables include the Apple Watch , AirPods , and Beats headphones. He said that "passing the baton" is one of his important role. The CEO was also quizzed on the mobile payments industry.

Netanyahu has denied wrongdoing in both cases filed by police.

The second, Case 2000, also alleged "bribery, fraud and breach of trust by the prime minister" and by the publisher of the biggest-selling Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth, Arnon Mozes.

He added that the "prime minister never acted in Milchan's benefit on any issue, except for one, that of the visa". Milchan did not immediately answer a request for comment.

Milchan claimed he was recruited in the 1960s by Shimon Peres, the late Israeli leader, who was a defense official at the time, and worked to procure technology for Israel's nuclear program.

He argued that Shimon Peres also acted on Milchan's behalf when he lobbied to prevent a lawsuit in the US against Milchan for his activities as a secret Israeli agent.

A decision could take months and Netanyahu's government appeared stable for the time being. All the parties in his right-wing coalition have said that they will not bring down the government, fearing that elections at this point could serve the left-wing opposition.

It's not the first time Netanyahu has been embroiled in scandal.

Polls published on Israel's three main television channels showed that more people believed the police's version of events than Netanyahu's.

Bennett, who has ambitions to be prime minister, heads the far-right party Jewish Home, which holds eight seats in parliament.

Recordings recently emerged of his wife, Sara, screaming at an aide, while separate recordings caught his eldest son, Yair, on a drunken night out at a series of Tel Aviv strip clubs while traveling around in a taxpayer-funded government auto with a government-funded bodyguard.
