If not for the efforts Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Iran probably would have nuclear weapons by now, Aaron Klein said on Wednesday.

In an interview with The Jewish Press, Klein, Netanyahu’s strategic adviser, credited the Israeli premier with securing sanctions on the regime in Tehran, which set back Iran’s nuclear program “by years.”

Asked about the indictments for which Netanyahu will be standing trial, Klein drew a parallel to the United States.

“The cases do remind me personally of the Russia hoax that deceptively targeted [U.S.] President [Donald] Trump,” he said.

Klein also spoke about what it is like working with the prime minister.

“Even when he’s sleeping he can be awakened by the ‘red phone’ if there are security emergencies, like attacks from Gaza. I’ve been around him for about one year now and have never seen him stop—not once!” said Klein.
