Is this a case of actual merit, or is this just another “political witch-hunt?”

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Natanyahu was indicted Thursday on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust by Israel’s Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit.

According to Fox News:

Allegations against Netanyahu include suspicions that he accepted hundreds of thousands of dollars of champagne and cigars from billionaire friends, offered to trade favors with a newspaper publisher, and used his influence to help a wealthy telecom magnate in exchange for favorable coverage on a popular news site.

Reuters reported earlier on Thursday that Netanyahu has previously claimed that the then-possible legal move against him was a “political witch hunt.”

Netanyahu is the first Israeli prime minister to be indicted while in office. If convicted, Netanyahu could face up to 10 years in prison for the bribery charge and no more than three additional years for the fraud and breach of trust charges.
