"I respect her view that due to privilege she can not comment or add on matters recently before the media", Trudeau said at the time. Wilson-Raybould says that must go on.

The political scandal erupted after The Globe and Mail released an incriminating report that suggested that members from the PMO tried to pressure former Attorney General and Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould into interfering in a criminal prosecution against the Montreal construction and engineering giant.

The federal ethics commissioner is investigating the allegations. "I also am seeking answers that will clear the air regarding exactly what happened here, and, because I was raised to believe that full transparency is always the best approach to addressing such uncertainty, I believe that a full and transparent investigation is necessary to ensure that my constituents, and all Canadians, can be confident in (the) veracity of those answers", he said in a statement.

Trump Checks On BBC Cameraman Attacked By Supporter At His Rally
A BBC cameraman has been "violently attacked" at a Donald Trump rally by a MAGA hat-wearing supporter of the US President . The cameraman told the BBC that he was caught unawares by a "very hard shove", adding: "I didn't know what was going on".

Wilson-Raybould has refused to comment on the allegation since it surfaced last Thursday, citing solicitor-client privilege. The attorney general must consent to the negotiation of the agreement. "At no time did I or my office direct the current or previous attorney-general to make any particular decision in this matter", said the Prime Minister.

Trudeau dismissed a question about her absence, pointing out that other B.C. Liberal MPs also weren't there. "Her presence in cabinet should speak for itself".

Conservative Leader Albert Scheer has led the charge to haul Trudeau's aides and top members of his party in front of an emergency meeting of the justice committee for what he calls "unprecedented" attempts at influencing a criminal proceeding.

The December 2017 report found Trudeau broke four sections of the Conflict of Interest Act, including Section 11, which prohibits the receipt of gifts unless they are from friends and relatives.

"Justin Trudeau promised Canadians he would change the way politics worked in Ottawa, but instead his Liberal government continues to prioritize helping insiders and the rich get ahead".
