PM urges AG not to bow to ‘leftist’ pressure to indict him

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu urges Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit not to cave to “leftist” pressure to indict him.

“For three years now, the left has been protesting every week in front of the attorney general’s home… harass (him) at his synagogue and the grocery store. Now one is also suspected of having desecrated his father’s grave,” he tweets.

“It’s (part of) thuggish pressure to get him to file an indictment against me at all costs. One can only hope that the AG will not succumb to this tremendous pressure.”
