    Attorney General Avichai Mandleblit announced he is considering charging Sara Netanyahu with graft, fraud and breach of trust for alleged overspending of over $100,000 in public funds on private meals at the prime minister’s official residence.

    Friday’s announcement is the procedural first step ahead of leveling formal charges against Sara Netanyahu.
