Netanyahu heads to court as 1st sitting Israeli PM on trial

JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is lashing out at Israel’s justice system, saying his trial on corruption charges is an attempt to “depose” him. Prime Minister Benjamin spoke Sunday as he arrived at a Jerusalem courthouse for the start of his trial. He called the trial an “attempt to eliminate the will of the people” and an “attempt to depose a strong right wing leader.” He accused police and prosecutors of conspiring to “tailor”a case against him and called the claims “contaminated” and exaggerated.
