Israel’s prime minister is facing serious criminal charges that could affect his re-election, says a bestselling author and End Times scholar.
The attorney general of Israel has announced he intends to indict the prime minister on bribery and fraud charges in three different cases. That would make Netanyahu the first sitting prime minister to be charged with a crime.
Netanyahu has denied any wrongdoing, and his Likud Party calls the announcement "political persecution," but both the prime minister and the party have taken a hit in public polls.
The indictments are expected to be officially filed sometime after the April 9 Israeli elections.
Well-known author Joel Rosenberg, a former advisor to Netanyahu, says the prime minister is facing “very serious charges” in coming weeks.
“You have to understand,” he tells OneNewsNow, “that the attorney general that has indicted the prime minister has done so on three separate corruption cases.”
There are actually four corruption cases pending against Netanyahu but Rosenburg says the three indictment cases are each “entirely different,” which he views as a sign the attorney general has a lot of evidence.
He adds that the attorney general is not an enemy of the prime minister.
“He was hand chosen to be the attorney general by Prime Minister Netanyahu, so it's not a witch hunt,” says the author. “If you hand choose somebody that you trust, and that person ends up indicting you on three separate cases, it's very serious.”
