On Feb. 13, Israeli police recommended Benjamin Netanyahu be indicted on charges of bribery, fraud and breach of trust in two corruption cases. The 68-year-old prime minister has found himself embroiled in two other corruption inquiries as well, including one that landed him a sit-down interview with Israeli investigators Friday, according to Reuters.

Why it matters: Netanyahu, no stranger to corruption scandals during his four terms, has repeatedly denied wrongdoing and accused Israeli media of peddling fake news. But with evidence continuing to stack up against him, it remains to be seen whether Netanyahu can once again wriggle free and salvage his political career.
