Recall, Gantz announced last night that he would respond to President Trump's invitation, contrary to a trend that emerged over the weekend, according to which he seemed to reject the invitation to concentrate on the immunity hearings and leave them on the agenda. However, as part of Gantz's talks with US officials over the weekend, which were stealthy, the private meeting option between the two was raised. Gantz is expected to return to Israel in the third to open the plenary immunity hearings.
