Trudeau lied about pressuring Wilson-Raybould on SNC-Lavalin

Ezra LevantRebel Commander

On last night's episode of The Ezra Levant Show, I explained how evidence has emerged that proves Justin Trudeau lied about pressuring former Justice Minister and Attorney General, Jody Wilson-Raybould, to grant a differed prosecution agreement (DPA) to SNC-Lavalin.

Jody Wilson-Raybould was banned from testifying against before the House of Commons justice committee, after the Liberals on that committee voted against it. But then she released a recording of a phone call she had with Michael Wernick, the clerk of the Privy Counsel.

The recording proves that Trudeau was sending his man to badger her; months after the decision was already made to prosecute, Trudeau was pressuring her to change her mind.

Now, to be sure, Wilson-Raybould's own comments were self-serving — she knew she was recording herself. But so what? It proves the point that Wernick surely would have denied were it not on tape: she objected to the pressure.

In fact, Trudeau has specifically said JWR had never objected to the pressure.

So that’s a lie.

Ron Joseph,

What is the PPC?

All the good little “progressives” were so smug when Donald Trump became President, and the mouthiest of them said that they were moving to Canada. They even used their notoriety to whip the MSM into an anti Trump frenzy and used top Democrats to attack Mr. Trump using Robert Mueller.

Now, with 19 extremely biased lawyers investigating Mr. Trump for two years, and spending more than $25 million, they were not able to come up with one thing Trump had done wrong, including lying.

In Canada the fools on the left threw the best PM we ever had out of office for a ‘pretty boy’ that doesn’t know his ass from his elbow. One thing Junior does know and that is who is voter base is. He will keep Quebec happy at the expense of the provinces West of Quebec, and he will ensure the silence of the provinces East of Quebec by continuing their obese welfare payments, and he will do all of the above by continuing with his criminal ways. I only hope there is one RCMP Inspector or higher that believes that the law must be followed, even by Trudeaus.

In a few short years the population out West will have increased to the point where Quebec will not be needed to change the Constitution. When that day comes say good-bye to Equalization Payments, and hopefully Quebec as well.

Now if the RCMP would just do their jobs and arrest all those Liberals for obstruction of justice we can all have a nice Summer.

I can hardly wait to hear the howling from the left when Donald Trump unleashes his law enforcement officials on all of those that broke the law during the attacks on him.

The new poster boy for the loonie left has to be Jussie Smollet, and he, like Justin Trudeau, continues to claim that that which is known to be untrue is, in fact, true. Just Smollet’s claim of guys wearing MAGA hats is enough to open a federal hate crime investigation. Go get the little prick.

“…these Ladies are still strong Liberals. "

Exactly, RON JOSEPH. JWR is being touted as some kind of hero with principles, but turdo’s ethical deficits and greed (along with his shallowness, stupidity, and narcissism)were on display looooooong before the election. He was absenting himself from his parliamentary duties to collect five-figure speaking fees from charities and publicly-funded institutions while he was a sitting MP. Yet both her and Philpott had no reservations about riding into power on his coattails. And then, “because it’s 2015”, they both accepted ministerial appointments knowing full well that merit had been tossed out the window.

And it wasn’t that long ago that JWR was doing the same thing that she has accused turdo la doo of doing: sticking his nose in a judicial process and then changing the law to ensure his preferred oucome.

Remember the Gerald Stanley trial? Some heroine. Some principles.

All that comes out of Trudeaus’ mouth is driveling lies and if not lies—supreme bullshit. Liberal voters love to wallow in this pontificating Frenchman’s bullshit.

I certainly agree with the commenters here that say, " We haven’t heard the last from these women."
Jody has some of her father’s genes and he used to win arguments with Pierre Trudeau. When Jody knows which way she is going, she will be more MEDIA friendly like her dad.

Philpott’s smooth ability speaks for itself.
I do hope that they aren’t interested in the PPC, as these Ladies are still strong Liberals.

Trudeau said “diversity only works if there is trust”- this fool is an absolute joke. So the big FEM is all for feminism and indigenous women as long as they tow the line for this loon. Who broke the trust here it sure as hell wasn’t JWR!!

WENDY LYNN:
Very good points, especially your comment that “most meetings using WebEx – as a record – this is NOT an unusual procedure & DEFINITELY not unethical)”.
Plus, Kent Hehr is allowed to stay because he’s a man! and it was only a ‘perception’ of sexual harassment (didn’t say it, but that’s how they see it).
HYPOCRITES
I think she and Philpott may just do a Maxime Bernier counter attack.
We haven’t heard the last from these women.
It’s like leaving a company and taking your customers with you.
Let’s see.

THREE QUESTIONS to ponder:
1) In all seriousness, how does someone incompetent get to fire two very competent, democratically elected MPs who did absolutely nothing wrong?

JWR:
- Tried to protect Trudeau from crossing a legal and ethical line AND maintained confidentiality about the “pressure” being put on her.
- lost her position as Justice Minister but still kept silent. She hadn’t made any public statements about SNC-Lavalin or resigned from cabinet at that point.
- She gave a detailed and honest statement of events to the Justice Committee as she was called to do, respecting the imposed parameters.
- Later provided the Justice Committee her “hard” evidence to corroborate her testimony: notes and recording. Nothing was ever leaked or inappropriate.

Jane Philpott:
- Left cabinet in solidarity with JWR BUT never expressed interest in quitting the party.
- Never spoke of a “lack of confidence” in the party leadership.
- Was never given any opportunity to defend her position before the axe fell on her. She did not record anyone!

(PS: When I worked in government I, too, recorded most meetings using WebEx – as a record – this is NOT an unusual procedure & DEFINITELY not unethical) All work related communication is government domain and all civil servants are obliged to keep them.

2) Why should two strong ethical women get axed just for being principled and truthful when MP Kent Hehr (involved in sexual harassment) gets to stay in the Liberal caucus?

3) Do you want a government where the top guy can demand that criminal investigations on his friends be made to just disappear just by making a phone call? (That smells to me of dictatorships and communist regimes) Are we really there now as a country? Is that what Canadians really want?

“Trudeau has specifically said JWR had never objected to the pressure. So that’s a lie.”

Correction:

Trudeau has specifically said JWR had never objected to the pressure. So that’s ANOTHER turdo lie.
