UH OH: Trudeau’s Two Most Powerful Aides Were Pressing Jody Wilson-Raybould’s Staff On SNC-Lavalin Months After Decision Had Been Made
New report indicates once again that the Trudeau PMO simply wasn't willing to accept the decision of the Independent Prosecutor.
In September, the Independent Public Prosecutor ruled that SNC-Lavalin would not get a deferred prosecution.
Instead, they would have to go to trial.
The Attorney General - at the time Jody Wilson-Raybould - had the power to override that decision, though it would have been hugely unethical to do so.
Jody Wilson-Raybould refused to overturn it, choosing instead to protect the independence of the judicial system.
Yet, it seems the fact that a clear decision was made by both the Public Prosecutor and Jody Wilson-Raybould didn't stop the Trudeau PMO from continually pressuring her.
