The Thursday Politics Thread Requests Immunity

Morning Politocadoes!

The Holidays are dead! Let us return to our regularly scheduled drudgery.

Indicted Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu requested immunity from charges of corruption on Wednesday. The move, if successful, will likely delay his trial for months until after the election, essentially shielding him from charges. All of this has led to Israel’s top court to review whether an indicted member  can even be allowed to form a new government. You’d think this would be pretty straightforward, but as we’ve learned nothing is a given in The Darkest Timeline.
