This is still a developing story. While it is about events outside of the US, I trust that the relevance to a thread about our own President's administration is not too tenuous, but I will certainly respect any guidance or correction that is offered.
Israeli police said Tuesday there is "sufficient evidence" to indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on criminal charges in two corruption cases.
According to a police report published late Tuesday, authorities found evidence of "accepting bribes, fraud, and breach of trust."
Police stopped short of recommending that charges be brought against Netanyahu. That decision rests with the attorney general.
Rob Porter is still the top story on Fox News. So no fox link yet.
A police statement said there is enough evidence to indict Mr Netanyahu for bribery, fraud and breach of trust in two separate cases.
Speaking on Israeli television, Mr Netanyahu said the allegations were baseless and that he would continue as prime minister.
The allegations, he said, "will end with nothing"
What are the allegations?
One case centres on an allegation that Mr Netanyahu asked the publisher of an Israeli newspaper, Yediot Aharonot, for positive coverage in exchange for help in reining in a rival publication.
Police said the editor of Yediot Aharonot, Arnon Mozes, should also face charges.
The second allegation centres on a claim that Mr Netanyahu, Israeli prime minister since 2009, received gifts worth at least a million shekels ($283,000; £204,000) from Hollywood mogul Arnon Milchan and other supporters.
