Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert in testimony at his corruption trial denied accepting envelopes full of cash from American businessman Morris Talansky. As his multi-day testimony in Jerusalem Municipal Court moved to the Talansky affair, Olmert said Thursday that Talansky's testimony was made up of "fantasies," and that no cash was involved in Talansky's campaign contributions and personal donations. He also said the rumors that Talansky lent him money were false.
