From today - open season on Mendelblit - Opinion - Israel News | Haaretz.com
Haaretz - Israel News | Haaretz....cachedstripped 3 hours ago
Avichai Mendelblit knows that too, and he certainly deserves the criticism leveled at him for the long time it took him to make his decisions. That the benefits Netanyahu received aren't actual “money envelopes,” and that the attorney general ruled out of hand the suspicion that he traded in Israel's security in the submarines case, added fuel to the intense culture war raging in Israel, of which Netanyahu is both representative and generator. His supporters in this alliance of the self-pitying, one that has been in power for 40 years, truly believe that the all-powerful elites in Israel are carrying out a political putsch against him by legal means.

Rolling Stonecachedstripped 4 hours ago
After filing paperwork to qualify for the Alabama primary last week and flying to Arkansas on Tuesday to formally enter that state's primary, former New York City mayor Michael Bloomberg filed federal papers Thursday, officially entering the 2020 presidential race. For someone with a whole lot of money, there are a lot smarter things you could do with it than waste it on a long-shot presidential race. Bloomberg joins fellow billionaire Tom Steyer in the race as a largely self-funded candidate, but with an estimated net worth of $54.4 billion, according to Forbes, which dwarfs Steyer's estimated $1.6 billion, Bloomberg is by far the richest candidate in the field.

The Columbian: Headlines 2 hours ago
WASHINGTON - House Democrats and Manhattan's top prosecutor told the Supreme Court Thursday that President Donald Trump's arguments to shield his tax returns and financial records are weak, and not deserving of the justices' intervention. Trump made an emergency appeal to the court to block the subpoena from being enforced in the meantime after an appeals court in Washington, DC, ruled against him. But Vance said earlier Supreme Court rulings forcing President Richard Nixon to turn over the Watergate tapes and allowing President Bill Clinton to be sued for sexual harassment demonstrate that Trump also should lose.
