Now, the real question is whether after all these years of public service and politics will Binyamin "Bibi" Netanyahu leave gracefully with a "good name," or will he be served a "Go to jail" card?
Bibi and his wife Sarah have been under a "legal microscope" for quite awhile already, and it seems to me that if there had been some serious crimes, they'd be jailed already.
On the other hand, there are those who see him as getting punished by Gd in this world for moral failures against Jewish life/building in the Land of Israel. And his recent incomprehensible failure to uphold minimal security for our security forces on the Temple Mount certainly may have tipped things against him and will cause Bibi a very nasty downfall. Metal detectors and photographic surveillance on the Temple Mount had widespread support among Israelis, Right, Left and Center, Jews and non-Jews alike. Bibi's capitulation to Arab terrorists was suicidal and incomprehensible especially for a man who's known as a brilliant masterly politician.
If Netanyahu had been strong about keeping the new security devices in place, the latest polls would have shown his Likud taking seats from Jewish Home, Yisrael Beiteinu, Yair Lapid and Kulanu. But as soon as Bibi crumbled he speeded up the "post-Bibi" competition among his wannabe successors. Look at the difference according to the polls in "Jeremy's Knesset Insider".

Likud under a different leader:Don't forget that even with all the complaints and public investigations of Bibi, the polls are pretty consistent in giving the Likud the most seats. According to Israeli Law one vote for a political party, not a person, and the leader of the party that succeeds in forming a coalition becomes the Prime Minister.
31  Likud led by Saar, Erdan or Katz
20  Zionist Union
16  Yesh Atid
11  The Joint (Arab) List
10  Bayit Yehudi
08  Yisrael Beitenu
07  Kulanu
