Attorney-general should drop all charges against Netanyahu

World Israel News gives a report on what Benjamin Netanyahu's attorneys have presented that can and should lead to clearing him of indictment in what's an utterly petty case:
Going into the second day of a pre-trial hearing for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, facing criminal allegations in three cases of alleged fraud, a member of the prime minister’s defense team expressed optimism on Thursday that he and his colleagues were getting a sympathetic ear from Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit and the State Attorney’s Office.

“The attorney general’s people are listening to us closely,” said Netanyahu attorney Yossi Ashkenazi, speaking to the media on his way into the session at the Justice Ministry compound in Jerusalem. [...]

He said that the defense team had “presented documents that had not been part of the materials in the investigation.”

Despite his expression of initial pleasure with the attention that the defense team was receiving from the state prosecution, Ashkenazi acknowledged that there was a long way to go toward having the charges dropped.

A statement released by the defense on Wednesday night stated that the team had “laid out very detailed materials that are supported by considerable evidence that contradicts what the list of possible indictment counts claims. The attorney general listened to us. We hope and believe that nothing will remain of those counts and the cases will be closed.”
As I may have noted before, Israel HaYom's staff could defend Netanyahu by making clear he never supported any attempt to damage their business for the sake of Yediot Achronot, and call should be made to the attorney-general that this farce cannot continue, and it's time to drop the case altogether, and not keep it going for the sake of political motivations.
