It’s clear that Justin Trudeau is attempting to cover up the SNC-Lavalin Affair and that his Liberal MPs are helping him.
The way in which this story has unfolded, with almost daily changes to the Prime Minister’s version of events, with high-profile resignations, with anonymously sourced smear campaigns, and with coordinated cover-up maneuvering suggest this is not an ordinary political scandal.
Just this week Canadians learned that Justin Trudeau met with Ms. Wilson-Raybould two weeks after the Justice Department denied SNC-Lavalin a deferred prosecution agreement, not before. If the decision had already been made, it’s difficult not to interpret the Prime Minister’s reminder to Ms.
Wilson-Raybould as direct pressure to intervene in the prosecution. This is the strongest evidence so far that the Prime Minister’s Office inappropriately and potentially illegally tried to influence this criminal prosecution.
Justin Trudeau’s ethical lapses, including this latest affair, have thrown his government into chaos.
Conservative MPs will continue to demand a fulsome investigation and all other options to hold Justin Trudeau accountable remain on the table.
