Are Netanyahu’s indictments the same as the push to impeach Trump?
between the two leaders’ predicaments is not so much in the substance of
the cases as in the way their opponents and supporters perceive them.
After years of rumors, leaks, a bitter politicized debate and endless
delays, Israeli Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit finally announced
that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was to be indicted on charges of
bribery, fraud and breach of trust in three separate cases. It caused
Netanyahu’s opponents to celebrate and his supporters to rage against
what they believe is an unfair process. It also left everyone wondering
how this unprecedented development would impact the already confusing
stalemate that has left Israel without a governing coalition and on the
brink of a third election within a year.
