I’ve seen Liberal Facebook friends trying to downplay the brewing SNC-Lavalin scandal by noting that former Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould hasn’t come out and said that the Prime Minister’s Office tried to interfere in its criminal prosecution.
They’re technically correct, because Ms. Wilson-Raybould is not allowed to say anything about it until the Prime Minister lets her do so:
Until Justin Trudeau waives solicitor-client privilege, we’re left to speculate about whether Wilson-Raybould was forced out because she couldn’t speak French, or because of Scott Brison’s resignation, or because the Patriots won another Super Bowl. ‘Tis a mystery for the ages
For those keeping score at home, during the comparatively quaint Mike Duffy expenses scandal, then-Prime Minster/history’s greatest fascist monster Stephen Harper instructed his lawyer to waive solicitor-client privilege protecting his PMO documents from the RCMP.
