Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shrugged off the police’s recommendation to charge him with various corruption offenses on Sunday.
“They already decided and leaked a year ago that these would be the recommendations, so what’s new?” he said to a packed room of cheering Likudniks in Ramat Gan at a party Hanukkah event. “We couldn’t have expected a different result from a process that was infected from the start.”
Netanyahu accused the police of having a “conflict of interest,” because departing Police Chief Insp.-Gen. Roni Alsheich and others accused him and his wife of trying to sabotage the probe by allegedly hiring private investigators to track police detectives, which he called “crazy claims.”
“Something is wrong and everyone feels it,” he said.
