I feel like this is the eleventyfirst time he has been indicted, and yet he is still Prime Minister, but here is the report:
Israel’s attorney general has filed a formal indictment in court against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
It came after Mr Netanyahu withdrew a request for parliamentary immunity from prosecution on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust in connection with three separate cases.
He has denied any wrongdoing.
The Israeli parliament had been due to open a debate on the immunity request on Tuesday. But Mr Netanyahu said he would not have got a fair hearing.
He also criticised opponents for going ahead with the debate when US President Donald Trump was due to unveil his long-awaited Middle East peace plan.
On Wednesday, Mr Netanyahu will fly to Moscow to brief Russian President Vladimir Putin on the plan, Israeli officials said.
He’ll skate. No one powerful ever pays a price for anything.
