He’ll be speaking at the House of Commons Justice Committee.
Gerald Butts, the former top advisor to Justin Trudeau who’s resignation further escalated the PMO scandal, will be addressing the ongoing controversy at the Justice Committee.
Butts will be speaking at 10:00 am Wednesday.
His appearance follows the absolutely devastating testimony of former Attorney General Jody Wilson-Raybould, testimony that included the revelation that Butts applied pressure and even said there was no ‘solution’ for SNC-Lavalin that ‘didn’t involve some interference.’
The problem facing Butts and Trudeau however, is that Jody Wilson-Raybould had meticulously detailed testimony, based on notes and documentation, while Trudeau and his cronies appear to have nothing with which to refute her comments.
They’ve been reduced to saying they ‘disagree’ with what she said, without actually detailing any specific areas of disagreement or providing any detailed information of their own.
As a result, many expect Butts’ testimony to be more about spreading talking points and playing defence for Trudeau, rather than actually refuting what Jody Wilson-Raybould said.
