Justin Trudeau Directly Authorized $10.5 Million Payment To Khadr Says Report

While government tries distancing Trudeau from the hated payment to Omar Khadr, source in PMO explains Trudeau’s direct role.

A report in the National Post shows efforts by the Trudeau government attempting to distance Justin Trudeau from the payment to Omar Khadr.

According to the story, “Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was not yet aware a $10.5-million payment to Omar Khadr had been finalized when news of the settlement leaked to the media in the summer of 2017, an internal report shows — suggesting one explanation for why the government launched a wide-ranging hunt for the source of the leak.”

However, the Trudeau government has admitted that they supported the payment, with Gerald Butts saying in a book “But we wouldn’t have stopped it.”

And yet, it turns out that Justin Trudeau directly authorized the payment:

“However, a source in the Prime Minister’s Office who spoke on the condition they not be named said the payment of money also had to be authorized directly by Trudeau, as well as Finance Minister Bill Morneau, because it was a funding request taking place outside the usual budget reporting process.”

So, in another communications fail, the Trudeau government tried to distance Justin from the payment, which resulted in him being tied even more closely to it.

Imagine all the good that $10.5 million could have done to help loyal Canadians.

Trudeau and Morneau paid out 10.5 million of Canadian taxpayers’ dollars. What gave these two Corrupt Liberals the right to pay a Convicted Criminal 10.5 million dollars of my money and all Canadians’ money? Did he get our permission to give this to a Convicted Criminal who killed an American Soldier leaving this Soldier’s Family Fatherless and Blinding another American Soldier? I hope that the lawsuit from these families against this Criminal results in Omar Khadr never seeing any of this money! Khadr, Khadr’s lawyer, Trudeau, Morneau and the whole Liberal Party are totally disgusting! They have NO Morals!

HOW the HELL can he do that???? I thought there had to be over-sight o this and that the prime minister did not have the power to unilaterally make the decision and authorize this!!! THIS is NOT democratic process, but rather has ALL the characteristics of a DICTATORSHIP!!!

Eleanor Merkus

You are so right. We must get rid of these Lieberal creeps. Justy is a dictator who can not take criticism or to be told what to do. The Reybold saga told us that much already.

It’s time to old the next government responsible to charge them the Liberal party with treason the people of Canada would have to pull together and demonstrate very hard to accomplish this task , the wetland is full.

Orrrrrrrr, how about that 10.5 Million, go to Christopher Speer’s widow, and children instead, that would be the smarter move, considering that Omar killed First Class Sargent Christopher Speers, when he threw a grenade at him.
