THREAD: The Kinsellian Stages of Scandal Denial™ are: one, deny it happened. Trudeau's PMO did that on Thursday when the @globeandmail story broke. #LavScam #cdnpoli
Kinsellian Stages of Scandal Denial™ number two is: okay, it may have happened, but not in the way it's been reported. It's all a big misunderstanding! That's what PMO tried to do on Friday. #LavScam #cdnpoli
Kinsellian Stages of Scandal Denial™ number three is: slime your critic. Attack, attack. That's what PMO did on Saturday to @Puglaas. Problem with that, of course, is it doesn't just step on Trudeau's feminist/indigenous liberator brand - it destroys it. #LavScam #cdnpoli
Kinsellian Stages of Scandal Denial™ number four: whataboutism. That's what PMO is doing today, Sunday. "Well, yes, we met with SNC. But so did @AndrewScheer!" But it won't work. Won't make #LavScam go away. Why?
Glad you asked. It won't work because it was perfectly legitimate for SNC-Lavalin to lobby for a better legal outcome. They did that right out in the open. It's all over the lobbyist registry. They lobbied everyone. That's not a crime.
THE CRIME is PMO senior staff pressuring/bullying/directing @Puglaas, as Attorney-General of Canada, to do/not do something. That is a crime. That is obstruction of justice, full stop.
The first test for @AndrewScheer came during Thursday's QP. "Will he utter SNC's name in his questions?" I asked aloud. "That's the test. Is he beholden to a slimy multinational, or the Rule of Law?" He chose the Rule of Law. He said "SNC" in every question. Over and over.
@AndrewScheer - and everyone who works on the Hill, pretty much - met with SNC. That's legal. What isn't legal is pressuring the Attorney-General to interfere in a criminal proceeding. And that's what @JustinTrudeau's office DID. #LavScam #cdnpoli
