Michael Wernick's son worked for Liberal MP behind SNC-Lavalin cover-up

Keean BexteRebel Contributor

The SNC Scandal that has been gripping the nation over the past few weeks just got a lot more interesting. On Wednesday a liberal MP Francis Drouin (who is not typically on the Justice committee) moved for a sudden adjournment of the emergency proceedings.

That is enough on its own set off some alarms, but what The Rebel has uncovered is even more cause for alarm. The Liberal MP in question, Francis Drouin, was the recent employer of the son of a material witness of that very committee.

Michael Wernick, the Clerk of the Privy Council, testified earlier this month, refuting many of the allegations Ms. Wilson-Raybould leveled against Justin Trudeau. Paul Wernick, the son Michael Wernick and recent staffer to the Liberal MP who abruptly adjourned the proceedings on Wednesday was interviewed by Global News a few months ago after he attempted to kill himself in a Parliament Hill office.

This development uncovered by The Rebel, even though Global News quite clearly knew about the connection, calls into question Michael Wernick’s testimony, and whether or not Canadians can trust the non-partisanship of the country's top bureaucrat. Does Wernick not think it is worth noting to the committee that until very recently, his son’s salary was dependent on the electoral success of the Liberal Government?

The Liberals are playing games with this scandal, why is someone so close to Wernick filling-in on the committee on such an important day, when bringing Jody Wilson Raybould back to testify was going to be debated? Was Wilson-Raybould going to say something that would expose Wernick? Was Drouin sent by Trudeau to protect the Prime Minister's loyal Privy Council Clerk? To my knowledge, it was not declared anywhere, by either the witness Michael Wernick or by MP Drouin, that such a flagrant conflict of interest existed.

The child of Canada’s chief public servant worked on the 2015 Liberal Campaign, and worked, until very recently for a Liberal MP who would go on to snuff out the last attempts to shine the light on this national scandal.

This is outrageous and the fact that it took The Rebel to expose this, when the mainstream media knew perfectly well about it, is despicable

As you know Jody Wilson Raybould testified that inappropriate pressure was placed on her - inappropriate political pressure by high level bureaucrats in the liberal government. How lucky for Trudeau - just in the knick of time, the employer of the son of a material witness, who refuted much of Wilson-Raybould’s testimony, comes to committee to save the day for Justin his comrades.

Michael Wernick has retained a lawyer - something that is rarely done by parliamentary witnesses.

I went to high school with Michael Wernick. He was not an honour student or Ontario Scholar, but a smarmy, rather conceited kind of guy. Somehow, It doesn’t surprise me that he has become the top civil servant. He was the sort of person who one could imagine selling his mother into slavery to get ahead. His father was a history teacher. The fact that the Liberal Party hired him tells me the Liberal Party are very poor judges of character.—but then again, maybe his lack of ethics is exactly the character trait needed for politics.

Nepotism alive and well because it’s 2019…

When it smells, it smells bad. The Liberals are using every trick in the book to try and make this go away. These tricks they have learned from the scandal that brought down the Cretian government, and a history of getting caught with their hands in the electoral cookie jar.

Michael Wernick, essentially, lied by omission. When the next government comes in, he should be shown the door. Deep State? Yep.

Yeah, no mean comments about Wernick, he’s very sensitive to criticism don’t ya know. (sarc of course)
Having said that, while the son thing is relevant , five minutes of Wernick Senior with his skinny in the nose, pinched lipped faux outrage, was enough for me to question his motives, authenticity and yes, his impartiality. He protested wayyyyy too much. I wouldn’t trust that man to walk my dog. He was one of the quickest reads I have seen in a long time.

Where the hell is the RCMP..??

The current commissioner is one of Justin’s feminist quota YESDADDYs….and she doesn’t want to get elbowed in the tit the way Jody did.

And the reason why the best prime minister had to be voted out was because….?!

Maybe it was the rash of multiple suicides that got Harper moving with getting help to our returning soldiers but at least he did something. Grow-ups for medicinal cannabis were making headway and openly discussed, to the point where I said to Hubby, ‘’all Harper has to do is legalize weed and he’ll get re-elected," not knowing how detrimental someone else would do to legalization. I know my son and many others got quality help/quality counselling – all they had to do was ask for the assistance. What i’m trying to say – going from leadership that got us through a global recession with our heads above water to this – a scandal where a ‘not ready for prime time’ feminist man-child is revealing the fact that confederation has been broken. Truly broken when a corrupt, political bribing company is more important than the fact that Alberta is suffering another concurrent recession…but the man-child ‘feels our pain’ and flies out to Calgary just for the lip service. Trudeau/Obama – the 1-2 play by the globalists and Canada, one of the last truly free nation is history.

But Harper was a dictator don’t you know. The Liberals are caring and selfless and honest and open and transparent. LMAO! And the blind idiots remain blind.

Doesn’t surprise me it’s been one scandal after another with these libtards.. wernick you and all your liberal buddies are going to need lawyer’s and hopefully sooner than later..

Yo Magget Menzies, your tone sounds eerily familiar, very troll like, any way.
Let me say this….if it looks like a duck, walks like a duck and quacks like a duck…..it most certainly is a duck.
Paul Wernick may very well have nothing to do with the cover up, but sun shine is the best disinfectant. Every thing and every body around this scandal needs to be disclosed. Specially for the sake of the innocent.

I think this story is irrelevant to the SNC-JWR situation.
Shame on you for making this tenuous connection with
Paul Wernick.
commented 2019-03-15 17:07:00 -0400
Wernick is a blatant liar.
But now that it’s proven that he is in the #Libranos mafia due to his obvious connections, is anyone really surprised? He says his non-partisanship is proven by his working with Harper. Where is that tweet from Harper backing up Wernick’s non-partisanship, eh?
commented 2019-03-15 17:00:31 -0400
The plot thickens! Great job Keean – keep on them. I feel bad for the son, having a father like that. He’s the one that doesn’t sound very stable.
