He keeps acting like someone with something to hide.
Justin Trudeau has now revealed that he spoke to Jody Wilson-Raybould about the prosecution of SNC-Lavalin in September of 2018.
Here’s what Trudeau said, as reported by the Toronto Star:
“There were many discussions going on, which is why Jody Wilson-Raybould asked me if I was directing her or going to direct her to take a particular decision and I of course said no, that it was her decision to make and I expected her to make it.”
Of course, the accusation isn’t that Trudeau ‘directed’ her. It’s that she was pressured, or potentially removed for not doing what Trudeau and his cronies wanted.
And this is where it gets interesting.
“When asked if he had expressed a preference, and if it is possible Wilson-Raybould felt his comments as pressure, Trudeau declined a direct answer.”
This has been a pattern all the way through. Trudeau claims he can’t give details, but then gives a few details meant to back up his side of the story. After all, if he can say what he told her about ‘directing,’ why won’t he reveal what else he said?
And why is he allowed to keep talking about it while Wilson-Raybould is silenced?
Clearly, Justin Trudeau is acting like someone who has something to hide.
