Says government can waive solicitor-client privilege, but she can’t.
In advance of testimony expected this week, former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould has issued a letter to the Justice Committee.
With Trudeau earlier adding to the confusion by saying he could lift ‘some’ privilege but will decide what is and isn’t ‘relevant,’ it is still unclear how far Jody Wilson-Raybould can go in saying what’s happening.
And in her letter, she makes it clear that it’s up to the Trudeau government to make clear what she is able to say:
“I am anxious to appear at the first available time. However, I believe that in advance of my appearance the members of the committee and I should have as much clarity as we can in relation to the possible constraints on the matters about which I may properly testify.”
