Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu continued to show confidence Monday that the ongoing investigation into graft allegations against him would lead nowhere.
"I see the spirit of celebration in the television studios," Netanyahu said at a Likud faction meeting. "Wait with the celebrations; don't hurry."
The prime minister then repeated what has become his catchphrase in relation to investigations - "There will be nothing, because there is nothing" - and the Likud ctivists and members of Knesset in the room applauded him.
"You can keep sending out test balloons full of hot air, and we will continue leading the State of Israel," Netanyahu added.
Before making the comments, Netanyahu joked to coalition chairman David Bitan (Likud), asking if there's something else that's interesting in the news lately.
At the opening of the meeting, Bitan said the whole party believes in Netanyahu and wishes that he will remain prime minister for many more years. Participants in the meeting applauded that comment, as well.
