JERUSALEM (AP) — Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has lashed out at prosecutors in his corruption trial, accusing them of trying to oust him.

In a nationally televised statement, Netanyahu said the case against him is threatening to undermine the will of the country’s voters.

“This is what a coup attempt looks like,” he said.

Netanyahu spoke shortly after his corruption trial resumed and with the country’s president holding post-election consultations on choosing the next prime minister designate.
