The Israeli police recommended that the country's attorney general should indict Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his wife Sara Netanyahu for alleged bribery on Sunday due to their relationship with Israel's leading telecommunication tycoon — widely known as "Case 4000."
Why it matters: This is a very big deal. "Case 4000" is the third time in the last year that the police recommended Netanyahu should be indicted for bribery. The previous recommendations dealt with Netanyahu allegedly taking "gifts" worth $200,000 from businessmen in return for allegedly promoting their interests ("Case 1000") and an alleged bribe deal between Netanyahu and Arnon Mozes, the publisher of Israel's largest newspaper and an archenemy of Sheldon Adelson ("Case 2000"). But the allegations in "Case 4000" are the gravest of all the corruption investigations against Netanyahu.
