Echoes of the deep state’s efforts to take down President Trump found in Israel’s investigations against a sitting prime minister.

JERUSALEM – Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s legal team secured a rare victory in court on Tuesday when a Jerusalem District Court ordered that state prosecutors turn over proof of Attorney General Avichai Mandelblit’s authorization for police to begin investigating the prime minister.

Netanyahu’s defense claims that police investigations against the leader began before approval was granted by the attorney general.

According to Israel’s Basic Law, investigations against a sitting prime minister can begin only after the expressed consent of the attorney general.

In this case, Netanyahu’s attorneys alleged that the police investigations had begun unlawfully and received the attorney general’s approval only retroactively. They claim that if the investigations began unlawfully, then the whole case against Netanyahu should be dropped.

The district court gave the prosecutors one week to present the documentation.
