Duffy “witch hunt” ENDS with Senator cleared on ALL charges -- So what will Media Party say now?

Brian LilleyArchive

Senator Mike Duffy, former broadcaster turned politician, has been cleared on all 31 charges against him.

Duffy didn’t say anything to reporters as he left the Ottawa courtroom but his lawyer Donald Bayne said Duffy was completely vindicated.

As Duffy’s trial comes to an end, we continue to hear stories about other Senators paying back expenses but not ALL expenses. Bayne rightfully noted that Duffy is the only one that faced criminal prosecution despite other cases which involve much larger sums than the $90,000 in Duffy’s case.

Bayne went on to say that the total dollar amount in unresolved cases could be as high as $550,000 yet to be repaid to taxpayers.

When the Senate next sits, Duffy can take his seat now that he’s been completely restored as a Senator in good standing, a decision that may leave some in the Media Party angry but may leave others wondering what all the fuss was about.

The Mike Duffy witch hunt is over. We’ll see what happens to Liberal Senator Mac Harb and the rest of them in the days and weeks to come.

Knew since the beginning this would happen and " all " politicians would let it, they have to, to protect themselves and all of their parties. Bitch as you will about American politics but yours are absolutely no different !! I’d say most U.S. citizans are smarting up, lets just see the difference Trump makes, i fully believe he will change America and politics for the best … now that’s he’s won, it won’t be long.

Not a single average Joe knows who Mac Harb is if you bring him up. Everyone knows Duffy. Odd.

I guess rules only apply to conservatives?

Hey Ron Christensen wrong forum. Go back down to CBC and join the rest of the libtards with their steamy Harper hating orgy there. It’s funny to see you idiots lap up anything the Liberal-run media tells you, and obviously nothing turns you all on more than bashing Harper, hence the Harper hate orgies at every opportunity.

I said from the beninning this was a coverup inside the PMO and the biggest liar is and was and always will be Steven Joe-boy Harper. The judge’s comments certyainly show canadians just how corrupt Harper’s PMO was. And who is responsible? Harper! Now the fucking social deviant can resign. Jason Kenny and all the other con fuktards can quit too.
commented 2016-04-23 17:06:14 -0400
And now r
The CBC and other left-wing MSM are busy blaming the police and the prosecutor. No mention, of course, of their complicity in constantly flogging this case to the Canadian public prior to the election on behalf of their Liberal party masters. Bias reporting at best.

I just checked out a couple of CBC articles on this, but could only stomach the stupidity for a few minutes. Just nauseating how they try to justify their bullying of Harper now that Duffy was cleared of all charges. Bringing up Harper has started the vile Harper hating orgy up again, therefore taking the attention off the media’s clear biased intentions with the Duffy trial and effectively covering their asses. Of course the extremist left leaning commenters took the bait hook, line, and sinker, to hell with any proof, as long as they can bash Harper which is all they care about anyway. Some of the comments are so stupid it’s hilarious. Like one claimed Harper should be charged with terrorism. WTF? If we’re going down that path, there is far more reason to charge Trudeau with terrorism for the actual damage he’s doing to our country now! The very left wing ding dongs live in a completely different world, which is just too apparent with their outrageous claims and opinions. Seriously, everyone needs to take some kind of mental test that proves they are sane enough to participate in choosing the leader of our country. If something like that were put in place, none of these idiots who make up the majority of CBC commenters would ever be able to vote again, and we would never have an idiot like Justin Trudeau in office ever again. That would be a huge triumph for real Canadians who actually care about their country.

“I just watched CBC and CTV on Duffy’s aquittal and they both alluded strongly, though were careful to not say outright, that Duffy was guilty but the judge simply did not have enough evidence to convict.”

You must have a cast iron gut or a very low nausea threshold Peter. More than a minute or two and I feel like tossing the old cookies.

Did you not hear of the judge’s stinging indictment of the PMO? He all but indicted Nigel Wright and the PMO staff. He all but accused them of bribery! CTV picked up on it in its headline: “Mike Duffy verdict: ‘Mind-boggling and shocking’: Judge slams Harper PMO in Mike Duffy verdict” Other media are picking up on this as well. See: http://globalnews.ca/news/2655906/mind-boggling-and-shocking-judge-slams-harper-pmo-in-mike-duffy-verdict/
I would not be surprised if this present government seizes the opportunity of bringing criminal charges against Wright and other PMO staff.
The public have a tendency to forget that it was the media party that were the “witch hunters”! Videos of the attacks on the Conservative government re Mr. Duffy during Question Period should be aired.

Copied comment from Saul, over on the Canadian Landowner Alliance blog:

Q: Daddy, what’s the difference between Mike Duffy and Justin Trudeau?
A: Well son, Duffy represents the goals of your average politician, and Trudeau represents the brains of most voters.

MF…I agree with you on all counts, however, it is a broken system that needs overhauling.
commented 2016-04-22 12:05:06 -0400
@crusader Girl This isn’t about supporting Duffy. It’s about the left-wing media using this trial as a weapon to bring down Harper during the election campaign. Meanwhile they ignored the Liberal senator, Mac Harb, who did something similar as Duffy, only he never paid it back like Duffy did. Why was Duffy’s trial made into such a fiasco and not this Liberal senator who had committed these acts? It should be either every political party staffer is treated and punished the same, or the media keeps quiet about all of them, and this was a particularly dirty move by the Liberal media to go after Harper during an election campaign with it, but not breathe a word to Justin Trudeau when it came to the Liberal senator with the same charges.
commented 2016-04-22 11:37:28 -0400
Just because he was “cleared” doesn’t mean he wasn’t fraudulent in regards to his expenses. They are ALL guilty of misappropriation of funds and I wouldn’t support him just because he’s a Conservative. Two (or two hundred) wrongs don’t make a right.

I just watched CBC and CTV on Duffy’s aquittal and they both alluded strongly, though were careful to not say outright, that Duffy was guilty but the judge simply did not have enough evidence to convict.

Only one pundit, Andrew Coyne, on the CBC gave Duffy an small olive branch … the flimsy branch that it was, by saying (and I paraphrase), that “we must give Duffy the benefit of the doubt because he was acquitted, but that the judge did not have all the evidence and that just because he was found not guilty does not mean he was entirely ethical in his actions.” That was the most positive comment I could find from the main stream media creeps.

If only we could have a non-biased and ethical main stream media, especially for the tax payer funded CBC as their mandate to provide unbiased news for all Canadians is much higher that the privately owned and privately funded main stream media.

A guy can dream.
commented 2016-04-22 10:48:30 -0400
The whole damn circus was to get at Harper.

The immoral spineless main stream media was unable to get at Harper through Duffy, but they certainly did try. In the sense where the creeps in the main stream media were able to influence public opinion with their filthy lies they were able to affect Harper, but not directly as they so desperately wanted.

They wanted to pin on Harper that he ordered Nigel Wright to pay Duffy. That was never the case, but they did report it as such and when it was proven not to be not be true, the dirty reporters did not retract their putrid accusations. As you can probably tell, I have a deep seated contempt for the main stream media. They are putrid and not worth the skin they wear.

This was always about making the Harper Conservatives look bad in the eyes of the gullible voter. Nothing more, nothing less. Mac Harb and other lieberal senators. NOTHING will happen to them! We have a Liebrano government now!

The CTV national news was playing in the background tonight and came up with the Duffy story. Strangely enough, for the first time CTV didn’t mention how it broke the story and how its crack team dug up the dirt on Duffy.

I still don’t understand why if someone pays off your debts for you it can be considered – or even implied – criminal.

But why is there silence from the MSM about Mac Harb all this time? Isn’t it something in the area of $240,000+ of questionable expenditures? Why is his name and activities barely mentioned? Where is the outrage for this Liberal appointment, someone our fearless leader, uh, PM, uh, Baby Doc Trudeau, uh, said that he is proud to have in, uh, his party. Uh…

Oh yea, why has our government spent almost 8 billion dollars (so far) of our hard earned tax money on other nations and almost nada on us? Its our money, not Baby Doc Trudeau’s trust fund money. Where is the media outcry, as there was for Duffy? Why a 30 billion increase in debt, meaning we will be paying interest on Baby Trudeau’s generosity to other countries, including those that wish us harm.

I think it is deplorable what the media, especially the CBC, did to one of their own. They never had a leg to stand on. They were allowed to use their state broadcasting platform to destroy the life of their previous co-worker, who incidentally was one of the best they ever had, while at the same time doing their best to discredit Prime Minister Harper and whisk their hand picked candidate into place. The influence these evil people have had on our elections has been massive. The creep we have running this country now has committed more sleazy immoral moves since he was elected than Harper did in six years in power. Trudeau and the CBC are a disgrace to this nation. We average Canadians cannot trust them to look out for our interests. They don’t give a shit about us. It is only all about them and has always been just about them.

Shame on the CBC. God bless Mike Duffy.

Took a while . CBC was slow out of the gate for reporting. But of course it was the PMO and Harper’s evil ways that put Duffy out there. WTF. Eat that up you urban liberal idiots. CBC is soooo toxic it should have it’s own WHMIS label.

commented 2016-04-21 22:38:29 -0400
The whole mess was way overblown and there obviously wasn’t enough evidence to convict him of any of the charges. The Crown probably new this from the start but were forced into laying charges after political pressure was put on them by the leftist politicians and media. This witch hunt had nothing to do with Duffy or the senate and everything to do with going after Harper. The proof of this is before the election the media were treating this as the trial of the century but after the election there was hardly any coverage. I’m sure they will still try and blame Harper now that this farce has come to an end.

Today is a great Happy Sunny Way Day!!!!!

The CBC had a Party, Celebration and Happy Dance or two prepared for a Duffy conviction!

HA HA! Stephen Harper’s career is ruined, and everything he did since uniting the right is collapsing. Everything his government did is being reversed.

We are blessed to have the leadership we have now, and we are certain that Justin will easily be reelected to another strong mandate

Sean you are a complete tool and you have no idea what your talking about.
So far! Your love god Prime Minister F—k stick, has put us enough in debt that my grandchildren will be paying for losers like you and his fucking government, and they haven’t even been born yet. He has destroyed the only thing in this country that makes money. He has lied out of his ass and his party has lied out of their asses as well. They keep supporting the ISIS terrorists and they keep giving money away to every piece of garbage they come across. I now know where you come from. YOU ARE A PIECE OF HUMAN GARBAGE AS WELL. Now I am going to type slow, so maybe you can understand something. Did I type slow enough for you?

commented 2016-04-21 21:36:27 -0400
@sean Penson The only way you arrogant idiots could ruin Harper’s career was with blatant lies and other dirty tactics, because there’s no limit to how low you will go to get what you want. I used to be non-partisan, but turned Conservative (at least when it comes to common sense,) after the disastrous results of the last election that left us with a child in charge of our country, and how those disastrous results were achieved by the extreme left-wing in both Canada and the U.S. Extremist Liberals are disgusting to say the least. Every sane Canadian needs to fight against the insanity or we’re going to be living in a third world country by the next election. I think it’s justified now for rational Canadians to do whatever it takes, even sink down to the Liberal’s dirty level, to get Justin out of office before he kills Canada.
