Are Trump and Netanyahu using the same consultants?
“He defiantly claimed the indictment stemmed from “false accusations” and a systematically “tainted investigation,” saying the country was witnessing an “attempted coup” against him.”
“Police and investigators are not above the law,” he said. “The time has come to investigate the investigators.”
“Netanyahu is desperate to remain in office to fight the charges. Under Israeli law, public officials are required to resign if charged with a crime. But that law does not apply to the prime minister, who can use his office as a bully pulpit against prosecutors and try to push parliament to grant him immunity from prosecution.“
“As the investigation gained steam in recent months, Netanyahu has repeatedly lashed out at what he sees as a hostile media, police and justice system. Observers have compared his tactics to those of his good friend, U.S. President Donald Trump, who has used similar language to rally his base during an accelerating impeachment hearing.”
Luckily for our president, his trial, if it come to that, will be decided by a “jury” of his sycophants and supporters. Presided by a Republican judge.
Sounds like a KKK trial in Alabama before 1965.
