It guarantees even more coverage, and if Trudeau followed through on the threat, he and his cronies would have to explain themselves in a process they don’t control.
The threat by Justin Trudeau to sue Andrew Scheer for talking about the SNC-Lavalin PMO Scandal is a massive tactical miscalculation.
Throughout the entire escalating scandal, the Liberals have tried saying there’s “nothing to see here,” pretending it’s not an issue.
They’ve also desperately tried to deflect from what’s happening by changing the channel to other talking points, which has failed miserably.
But now, by threatening to launch a lawsuit against Scheer, the Trudeau Liberals are guaranteeing far more media coverage of the scandal.
Not only that, but if they actually followed through on the threat, they would be forced to explain themselves in court, removing their ability to lie and moving the process from the political realm – which they control through their majority – into the court realm, which they would not control.
Such a large miscalculation ironically reinforces how big a scandal this is, and how scared the Trudeau PMO is of the continuing fallout. When political parties and operatives become desperate, they lash out and make big errors, and that’s exactly what we’re seeing now.
