Mike Duffy trial begins in Ottawa today

Brian LilleyArchive

Before he became a senator, Mike Duffy was a household name as a veteran broadcaster.

He is now facing over 30 charges of alleged fraud and breach of trust related to expenses and consulting contracts.

Duffy has entered a plea of innocent.

This trial by judge in Ottawa will be a media circus.

Those expected to appear in court include TheRebel.media's Ezra Levant, who has been called as a witness.

Let us have a list of all the Liberal appointed/Independent Senators and an estimate of when, if ever, they will come up for Trial. Poor Justin.

I didn’t like the new sound effects that were used in this video. They’re unnecessary, in my opinion.

If Ezra will be called to testify, you can be sure Robert Fife will be there. He has called Ezra a “loud mouth”. I call Fife a “biased loud mouth”. Has anyone ever heard Fife taking Justin Trudeau to task over his contradictory statements.

And Brian I will be tuning into you for those updates. That is because I expect to get rational and unhyped updates from you. I will not be following CBC, CTV, or Global. Rebel TV will be my news source of choice in this matter.

“…Duffy is sleazy and should never have been considered for appointment.”
You nailed it, DONALD ALLAN. And ditto for Brazeau. Duffy’s penchant for shameless self-promotion was well known years before his appointment, and I don’t think it would have taken very much digging at all to figure out that Brazeau was just a disaster – in – waiting.

I suppose if you lifted a package of President Choice cookies , you could be charged with seperate counts for each cookie. Well we all know that Mike was "decadant "and foot loose and fancy free with his expenses as a Senator . Most of them are. But we are talking about expenses and policies , not laws . The Crown must prove beyond reasonable doubt that he had intent to steal , to commit fraud. Although I think Duffy is sleazy and should never have been considered for appointment, he nontheless has a viable defense.

Duffy frauded the government $90K. Leave it to the pigs in the MSM to tie this to Harper. MSM is just a liberal puff-pieced brochure.

The CBC will make a circus out of this and use it to bash the Conservatives. I foresee a minimum of 60 to 65 articles on Mike Duffy just from the CBC alone throughout the trial period, all to serve as a platform to bash the Conservatives and Harper specifically. That’s my prediction.

And maybe it’s just the angle of the shot in this photo of Duffy, but it makes him look like he’s lost weight.

From what Ezra presented about Duffy on his former show, the Source, it appears Duffy is not guilty. But we’ll see what the evidence is and what the court has to say.

With the litany of charges facing him, entering a plea of innocent should make for a defense which will become a revealing look at back room politics in the Ottawa snake pit – something Duffy has lived in and reported on for years.
