Butts To Address PMO Scandal On Wednesday

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.

Mr Butts essentially disappeared from public view for a period of time and is now “willing to return” to help clarify matters? Would it not be reasonable to have the RCMP check his whereabouts and activities during his alleged time away? Additionally, given the limited number of people who were allowed to speak originally and the limitation placed on JWR, will she be allowed to speak her complete truth? Surely someone, somewhere can provide this type of information to “we the people” so that we can make informed judgements about the uses of our money and the direction of our… Read more »

OK folks. Get a big manure fork, get gloves on and your nose plugs in and get ready to shovel. It’s going to be a huge pile.

Gee… a former pot and party buddy (could be current, too) of the PM … I wonder what he will say?

Would he spin things? Do you think?
