Adelson Talks to Police, Netanyahu Indictment on Gifts Scandal Looms

Will an early election be called by Prime Minister Netanyahu and/or will he be indicted? Is that why Netanyahu was working on campaign ads earlier in May? – Ann

Adelson with Netanyahu

The Jerusalem Post reports that “US billionaire Sheldon Adelson provided testimony to Israel Police on Thursday in the ongoing investigation of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu regarding alleged collusion by the premier and a newspaper publisher.

“Adelson and his wife Miriam, who are not suspects in the investigation, arrived at Lahav 433 headquarters in Lod to give their testimony. The testimony was first reported by Hebrew media and confirmed with a police source by The Jerusalem Post.

“The investigation, termed Case 2000, revolves around recordings of Netanyahu and Yediot Aharonot publisher Arnon Mozes in which the two men allegedly sought to weaken the Adelson-funded Israel Hayom newspaper. Israel Hayom is a free daily newspaper generally seen as pro-Netanyahu, which has undercut Yediot’s advertising revenue.

“The prime minister is also being investigated over suspicions that he accepted illegal gifts from businessmen totaling in the tens of thousands of shekels. Channel 2 reported earlier that police are going to recommend to indict Netanyahu for the gifts case, however, the final decision to indict is made by Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit.”

    Follow that car! If Bibi is indicted &/or is not re-elected as Israeli PM -OR- if the demented Saudi ‘d-Ruler’ dies or is deposed -OR- if Trump is impeached &/or removed (or self-aborts or self-deports), then no WW3.
