Using Exact Same SNC-Lavalin Scandal Talking Points, Trudeau Says PMO Didn’t “Direct” Attempt To Muzzle Diplomats, Implicitly Accusing Two Former Ambassadors Of Lying

Either Trudeau is telling the truth, or the former ambassadors are. Hmm… who could it be?

With the Opposition demanding answers on reports that the Trudeau PMO tried to silence two Canadian diplomats from speaking about policy towards Communist China, Justin Trudeau was asked about it during a press conference.

His response?

“I can confirm that the PMO did not direct that to happen.”


“did not direct.”

The same wording Trudeau used as tried denying the SNC-Lavalin PMO Scandal:

“Trudeau’s hanging his hat on that word “direct” again! Shades of #LavScam. “‘I can confirm that the PMO did not direct that to happen’, Trudeau said.” Enough.”

“This is what Trudeau always does. Throw anyone and everyone under the bus to protect himself. Deny deny deny….and when caught say they all must have just experienced it differently…. Trudeau cannot be trusted to tell the truth. He has to go.”

The problem here for Trudeau is that, by claiming the PMO didn’t “direct” anyone to try and muzzle or control the diplomats, he is implicitly accusing two former Canadian ambassadors (David Mulroney & Guy Saint-Jacques) to China of lying.

After all, either Justin Trudeau is telling the truth (*cough* unlikely *cough*), or the diplomats are telling the truth – far more likely.

Yet, as MP Bergen said, Justin Trudeau will throw anyone under the bus if he thinks it will protect him. Trudeau thinks it’s never his fault, someone else is always to blame.

That’s the exact opposite of leadership.

Trudeau’s weakness, dishonesty, and outright contempt for Canadians is a disgrace.

In Trudeau’s mind, he is never in the wrong. It’s anybody and everybody else but him. If he’s the best Canadians can come up with for a Prime Minister, Canada is in trouble.

Always blemming the PM for everything even for things nothing to do with him. The 2 lady’s finally was kicked out from our party. Everything was about themselves selfish and power hungry, believe that they are above the PM.

So, here we go again, round two of Lav Scam and still not learning anything.Trudeau is a compulsive liar and will default to his usual deny, deflect blame and accuse anyone and everyone of being the culprit and ending with that old condescending and patronizing statement, “he, she, or they must have experienced it differently” .Real leadership always demands honesty, truthfulness , integrity,humbleness and a willingness to accept blame for your mistakes. Trudeau demeans the office of PM and makes it a laughingstock in the eyes of our allies and friends. After all, why would two former ambassadors to China,… Read more »


Media and the Conservatives are still trying every dishonest move to attack the Liberal Government but Canadians remember the suffering under the Conservatives and the PC. which in fact are one and the same. They try to use cuts causing high unemployment, education and health are no major concerns for them providing they appear to supposedly balance the books???? With cuts to our education system this is where all deficiencies fall.
