Justin Trudeau could easily waive the privilege preventing Wilson-Raybould from speaking. Instead, he’s telling the world what she’s supposedly saying to him.
As we’ve all seen, Justin Trudeau loves to call himself a ‘feminist,’ as a way of branding himself for political gain.
Yet, he only seem supportive of women in powerful positions when they’re doing his bidding.
And now, he’s refusing to use his authority as Prime Minister to lift the solicitor-client privilege blocking Jody Wilson-Raybould from speaking on the escalating PMO SNC-Lavalin scandal.
But that’s not stopping him from speaking for her, a point made by Charles Adler:
“Someone needs to tell the “Feminist PM”
#JustinTrudeau that a woman does not need him to speak for her. She can speak for herself the moment he removes her muzzle.”

In a ‘conveniently timed’ revelation, Trudeau claims that he ‘remembers’ Jody Wilson-Raybould telling him about a conversation they supposedly had, where he supposedly told her that the decision on prosecution of SNC-Lavalin was ‘hers to make’ and hers alone.
“SNC-Lavalin case: PM Trudeau says he’s met w/ Jody Wilson-Raybould on current B.C. trip; says “she confirmed for me a conversation we had this fall, where I told her directly that any decisions on matters involving the director of public prosecutions were hers alone…””

What Trudeau is doing here is putting words in Wilson-Raybould’s mouth, words that just so happen to match with is version of events.
Yet, if Trudeau is so confident that he did the right thing, then why isn’t he waiving privilege and letting Wilson-Raybould speak for herself?
Why isn’t he supporting a full investigation into his office?
Why is his government blocking an investigation by MPs?
Clearly, ‘Feminist’ Trudeau is totally willing to throw a woman under the bus to salvage his own political career and power.
Because it’s 2019.
