Prime Minister Netanyahu faces criminal charges weeks before Israel’s next election. To maintain support in the Knesset, he’s embraced a racist fringe party that’s been called a “terrorist” group by the US Department of State. The consequences for American politics are deep and potentially long-lasting.

Also: Michael Cohen calls his former boss a “racist,” a “con-man” and a “cheat.”  Can a convicted felon be believed?
