Report indicates how worried the PMO is about the continuing scandal.
The Globe & Mail is reporting that Justin Trudeau and top PMO officials have hired private lawyers, as they face the possibility of an RCMP probe.
“Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and senior officials in his office have retained outside legal counsel in case of an RCMP investigation into allegations of political interference in the criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin Group.
Mr. Trudeau’s communications director, Cameron Ahmad, told The Globe and Mail on Friday that Treasury Board rules allow for hiring of outside counsel when government officials are either sued, threatened with a suit, charged with an offence or under threat of being named in a legal action.”
Additionally, “A senior government official, who was not authorized to speak publicly about the matter, said an outside law firm has been hired to represent Mr. Trudeau, and another law firm will handle staff in the Prime Minister’s Office. The second law firm will act on behalf of Mr. Trudeau’s chief of staff, Katie Telford, Quebec adviser Mathieu Bouchard and senior adviser Elder Marques, the official said.”
At this point neither the government nor the RCMP have said whether an investigation is taking place.
However, the opposition has been pushing for an investigation, especially considering how corrupted the ‘justice’ committee has become.
Without an independent investigation free of political influence, Canadians can’t get the truth, because the Trudeau Liberals are now in full cover-up mode.
Additionally, the fact that the PMO is retaining lawyers shows how big of a scandal this is. After all, why would they be lawyering up for a story that’s ‘false?’
