Scott Thompson: Why won’t Justin Trudeau let Jody Wilson-Raybould speak again?

Given it’s an election year the scandal doesn’t help the Liberals’ chances of winning

Francis Drouin suggested the opposition Conservative and NDP members were playing politics by calling the meeting during March break, since a session to determine next steps had already been scheduled for Mar. 19. Cries of "shame", "despicable" and "cover-up" were uttered by opposition MPs who had demanded to hear from Ms Wilson-Raybould again after Liberals used their majority to end the meeting, Canada's Globe and Mail newspaper reported.

An emergency meeting of the Justice Committee investigating the situation was shut down nearly immediately by the Liberal majority sparking outraged cries of from the opposition of "cover-up", "disgusting" and "shame".

"If Liberal MPs decide to silence her to try to prevent the committee from doing its work, there's only one conclusion that can be reached and that is that the Liberals on the committee are continuing to do the bidding of the PMO to cover this up", Cooper said. Conservative MP Pierre Poilievre claimed yesterday that Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is directing the Liberal members and said it should be called the "Justin committee" rather than the "justice committee".

Thus far no Liberals have said publicly whether they will agree to call her a second time.

Wilson-Raybould quit the federal cabinet in mid-February as controversy raged over pressure she says she faced from Butts and others last fall to head off a criminal prosecution of SNC-Lavalin over alleged bribery and fraud it used to seek contracts in Libya.

While Wilson-Raybould did present her accounts of what happened to the House of Commons Justice Committee opposition leader Andrew Scheer has said that her statements have not gone far enough and is now pushing her to continue sharing her experience.

Last U.S. diplomats leave Venezuela amid strained relations
A convoy was seen leaving the USA embassy in Caracas on Thursday morning and the American flag was no longer flying outside. Palladino urged any USA citizens left in Venezuela to leave.

The Conservatives and NDP were furious, especially since Trudeau's former senior advisor, Gerald Butts, testified freely with no limits, and Privy Council clerk Michael Wernick spoke twice.

"Canadians deserve to know what those event were". "What are they hiding and why won't they let her speak?"

Justin Trudeau is gambling on two things: Canadians losing interest in this crisis over time, and that the budget will actually be more interesting than Justin, Jody and the SNC-Lavalin scandal.

Mrs Ramsey said: "What does this say to Canadians?"

"If they didn't have something to hide, we would have had the debate today".

Opposition politicians are trying to get Jody Wilson-Raybould back for another testimony.
