Justin Trudeau has broken the law again. It’s, what his fifth time now? That’s a problem in itself. Because it’s being normalized.
Today he was convicted of violating the Conflict of Interest Act by interfering with Jody Wilson-Raybould, who was then the attorney general, by trying to get her to drop criminal charges against a corrupt Quebec engineering company called SNC Lavalin.
This is the second Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner who has convicted Trudeau. Previously he was convicted of taking a $200,000 bribe, in the form of a free family vacation to a private island in the Bahamas owned by the Aga Khan, a billionaire who just happens to have a lot of business with the Canadian government, and by business, I mean, we give him big cash grants for his projects.
But this second report — it’s a doozy.
As you know, SNC Lavalin is a corrupt company that, as part of its business model, pays tens of millions of dollars of bribes to public officials, to get big contracts in exchange.
So the Canadian government was prosecuting them. Jody Wilson-Raybould was the Attorney General overseeing the Department of Public Prosecutions. And Trudeau intervened. Again and again. So did his staff. And Gerald Butts was behind it all — just like he was behind the cover-up for the illegal vacation from the Aga Khan.
Trudeau tried to get Jody Wilson-Raybould to drop the charges against his criminal friends. When she didn't, he fired her.
But the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner called him out.
TONIGHT I'll take you through today's findings in detail.
The short version is this:
What happened wasn't an accident. It was a massive plan. If this were a gang, if this were the Mafia, it would be called a criminal conspiracy.
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is a lawbreaker. And we don’t even know the half of it — because Trudeau continues to refuse to hand over information. He says it’s confidential. But this is the Ethics Commissioner — his job is to investigate confidential things. He’s not an outsider; he’s an internal check on the power of MPs. And Trudeau won’t let him see what Trudeau did.
Who can intervene here? Who has the power to get those documents, over Trudeau’s objections? The RCMP, that’s who.
But they’re silent.
Who’s going to speak against him — the media, who are all now on his payroll?
A healthy country would morally demand that a serial law-breaker, a corrupt crook like Trudeau resign.
But I don’t think we’re healthy as a country.
I think this law-breaking corrupt little trust fund kid is going to get away with it...
