Daily Briefing Jan. 22: How a 1993 corruption case sparked today’s judicial overhaul

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur on Shas head Aryeh Deri’s role; Knesset correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn on last night’s Tel Aviv protest, rumors about an attorney general showdown

Welcome to The Times of Israel’s Daily Briefing, your 15-minute audio update on what’s happening in Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish world, from Sunday through Thursday.

Senior analyst Haviv Rettig Gur and Knesset correspondent Carrie Keller-Lynn join host Amanda Borschel-Dan in today’s episode.

Keller-Lynn reported from the rallies in Tel Aviv last night where some 110,000 protesters gathered. We hear some highlights of the event.

The media is rife with rumors and reports that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu could be ordered by Attorney General Gali Baharav-Miara to step down for a leave of absence. We hear whether this is within the scope of her purview.

Rettig Gur delves into how Shas head Aryeh Deri’s 1993 corruption scandal helped launch the current campaign against the High Court’s expansive powers.
