State Comptroller Micha Lindenstrauss said Friday that a letter from Attorney General Yehuda Weinstein published a day earlier, presented a distorted version of events.

Channel Two news reported Thursday that Weinstein had accused Lindenstrauss of misleading the public with his recent statements about the "Harpaz document controversy," in an unprecedented head on clash between two of the leading law enforcement officials in the country.

Lindenstrauss has recently made public statements suggesting that Weinstein consider criminal charges in the affair despite an initial decision not to. In a letter to Lindenstrauss, Weinstein lashed out, stating that no allegations that could be considered criminal had been raised against any of the main players in the controversy.

Lindenstrauss condemned Weinstein's remarks that he had concealed the truth, and slammed the report as self-serving and baseless. He added that the one-sided and tendentious publication of Weinstein's letter presents an entirely distorted version because it ignored the State Comptroller's initial letter to the Attorney General's Office.
