Will Ashkenazi join politics if probe is dropped?

The political scene was abuzz about the possibility of former IDF chief of staff Gabi Ashkenazi entering the fray Thursday, following a report that Attorney-General Yehuda Weinstein plans to close the criminal investigation against him.

A close ally of Ashkenazi said the former IDF chief of staff has yet to receive official notice that the Harpaz case, in which he and other senior officers allegedly tried to illegally undermine then-defense minister Ehud Barak’s choice to succeed Ashkenazi, is closed, and to what extent, so it is too early to say were his future lies.

However, he added: “Politicians have talked to him. Everyone wants him and is trying to woo him."
