Washington - Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu (neh-ten-YAH’-hoo) is asking President Donald Trump for permission to share Israeli wine with White House staff.

And the Israeli leader is joking that he hopes “they don’t open an investigation” as a result. Back home, Netanyahu is facing a pending indictment on corruption charges.

And Trump has been the subject of numerous investigations, but is claiming vindication following the release of a summary of special counsel Robert Mueller’s report.

Netanyahu made the offer after Trump signed a proclamation recognizing Israel’s sovereignty over the Golan Heights.

Netanyahu says he brought Trump a case “of the finest wine from the Golan.” But he says Trump, who doesn’t drink alcohol, is “not a great wine drinker,” and that he wanted to give the wine to Trump’s staff instead.
