I know we’ve talked a lot about it, but I think we have to:
The explosive Globe and Mail story about Jody Wilson-Raybould being fired as justice minister because she wouldn’t drop the criminal charges against SNC Lavalin, a well-connected Quebec engineering firm that was caught paying bribes.
Yesterday, Trudeau started to fight back, essentially calling her a liar; if anything was wrong, it’s her fault.
Well, the media is convinced.
The CBC was making the case that really, Trudeau is the victim here. We’ve disappointed him. We’ve let him down. Especially that uppity girl, Jody...
And while Bob Fife and Steve Chase and Sean Fine, the three Globe reporters who broke the story, while they are still interested in the story, other members of the Globe staff think it’s much ado about nothing.
I mean, can’t the Globe go back to the good old days, like back in December, when they’d run huge PR-style stories about SNC Lavalin?
Official Liberal Ottawa is circling the wagons, too:
Some Liberal MPs in Parliament today call this all "a witch hunt." They say this is fake. They hate Jody Wilson Raybould, because she wasn’t willing to be bought off with little political trinkets, like they are.
My prediction: this will blow over, and be forgotten long before the next election.
The only thing that might change things is if the RCMP decides to file charges. They did against Mike Duffy — it was a bogus charge; the trial was a joke; Duffy was acquitted. But the police achieved their real goal — getting rid of Harper.
The RCMP is now run by Trudeau’s hand-picked new RCMP commissioner. I wonder: Is she loyal to the politician who just made her career?
Or is she loyal to the law — and to another woman who was chewed up and spat out by Trudeau for becoming a problem?
I’m not optimistic...
NEXT: One of our newest Rebel reporters, Keean Bexte, broke a bombshell of a story out of Alberta.
Last year, NDP Premier Rachel Notley investigated two of her MLAs for sexual misconduct, but their names were never released.
Today, Keean updated this story with shocking new information. You can WATCH his exclusive investigative report HERE — and tonight he joins me to talk more about it.
FINALLY: Your messages to me!
