Netanyahu under pressure to form coalition but possible indictment means he faces pressure to step aside.

    Israel's prime minister is facing more legal and political pressure on Wednesday when pre-indictment hearings in three separate corruption cases begin.

    Benjamin Netanyahu maintains he’s innocent, but being indicted will make it harder for him to negotiate a power-sharing deal, after last month’s inconclusive election.
