Netanyahu rival hires anti-Trump Lincoln Project founders

A rival to Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu in the March elections is getting some American campaign help

Lincoln Project founders Steve Schmidt, Rick Wilson, Stuart Stevens and Reed Galen were among the leaders of the effort to draw Republicans from Trump's reelection effort centered on the president's ethics and moral leadership. The Lincoln Project's stated mission is to hold public leaders “accountable.”

That's similar to Saar's message as the head of the New Hope Party, the faction he founded when he broke away from Likud. He accuses Netanyahu of turning the Likud into a tool for personal survival at a time when he is on trial on corruption charges.
