Netanyahu brings his dirty laundry to the White House
The corruption charges faced by Benjamin Netanyahu were expected to throw unwelcome light on his metaphorical dirty laundry, but nobody expected them to do so literally. Court records and official sources in Washington have revealed accusations against the Israeli prime minister of smuggling large quantities of washing to the American capital for years, apparently to have it cleaned at no cost. Blair House, the Washington house where world leaders are hosted, provides a laundry and dry cleaning service. Most guests use it to have clean shirts for summits and negotiations. Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, however, apparently take it further. ‘‘The Netanyahus are the only ones who bring actual suitcases of dirty laundry for us to clean,’’ an official said.
