'Start Here': Bush, Netanyahu, Paris. What you need to know to start your day.

It's Monday, Dec. 3, 2018. Thanks for choosing to start here.

1. Remembering President George H.W. Bush

George Herbert Walker Bush will be remembered as someone who believed in the power of Washington to do good.

On Friday night, the Bush family announced he'd died at age 94.

We're joined by someone who was with George H.W. Bush every step of that journey.

David Valdez was the White House photographer during the Bush years and tells us he watched the world change right in front of his lens:

"When George Bush was VP, we went to communist Poland. And this ship worker said, 'Some day you'll be president, and some day Poland will be free.' And then a few years later, and President Bush met this man, who had become president of a free Poland."

2. DOJ

A lot of attention will be on Washington this week, and some of it has the potential to imperil the White House.

President Donald Trump has said Michael Cohen is making up a story to get a more lenient sentence. But meanwhile, the president's former campaign chair, Paul Manafort, was cut loose from a plea deal after prosecutors said he was lying. Manafort's lawyers denied that he lied to the FBI.

So what happens next?

3. Benjamin Netanyahu faces new accusations

Over the weekend, Israel's national police force accused Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of bribery and recommended that the country's top prosecutor bring charges against him.

ABC's Jordana Miller in Jerusalem tells us this the third time charges have been brought against Netanyahu, but this time is different.

"His wife has also been charged as an accomplice to bribery, fraud and breach of trust," Miller says.

Netanyahu has denied any wrongdoing, calling it a "witch hunt."

4. Protests in Paris

This weekend in Paris, what began as angry protests quickly devolved into riots.

We'll take you to the scene where protesters clashed with police and where ABC's Ian Pannell says more than a hundred people injured and more than 400 were arrested.
