“As the former minister of justice and attorney general of Canada, I am bound by solicitor-client privilege in this matter,” says Jody Wilson-Raybould.
Former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould won’t be commenting on the growing scandal surrounding the Globe & Mail report that the Trudeau PMO pushed her to intervene in the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin.
“As the former minister of justice and attorney general of Canada, I am bound by solicitor-client privilege in this matter,” said Wilson-Raybould.
This is actually a very telling statement.
All Jody Wilson-Raybould has to do to make the scandal basically go away is to say that the Globe & Mail story was false – as Trudeau has said.
The fact that she won’t do so says quite a lot, and it raises serious doubts about Trudeau’s carefully crafted ‘denial,’ which notably denied something he and the PMO wasn’t accused of.
Wilson-Raybould is sending a clear message that she won’t be used by the Trudeau PMO, and won’t just say something politically expedient to make the scandal dissipate.
Trudeau has much to answer for, and this scandal isn’t going away. Canadians demand the truth.
