The Likud called Kadima's calls on Thursday for Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein to investigate Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu for possible ethics violations "ridiculous."

"It is ridiculous that Kadima, who came up with the concept of 'double funding' for trips, is criticizing the prime minister for his behavior," a statement released by the party read. "Unlike Kadima, where many members like Olmert, Hanegbi, Hirschzon, Ramon, Lachiani, Gilad and Omri Sharon all have police records, Prime Minister Netnayahu is completely clean after decades of public service."

"At the moment, the only question is who will manage the investigation that Kadima requested," the statement asks, "while Kadima's director-general is currently being investigated by the police."
