Top 6 Liberal excuses for #LavScam

Excuse 1: “We did it to save jobs.”

Fact: The pressure Justin Trudeau exerted on Jody Wilson-Raybould was only about protecting Liberal seats in Parliament. The only job he was trying to save was his own. 1/n
Excuse 2: “If Scott Brison didn’t resign, Jody Wilson-Raybould would still be Attorney General.”

Fact: Ridiculous. Nothing forced him to replace the Treasury Board President and Attorney General. She was fired because she wouldn’t stop SNC’s criminal trial, like he wanted. 2/n
Excuse 3: “The Ethics Commissioner will look into this.”

Fact: The Ethics Commissioner has no legal authority to investigate political interference in criminal prosecutions. Justin Trudeau is hiding behind a limited investigation that can’t hold him accountable. 3/n
Excuse 4: “SNC-Lavalin did not get a special deal, so nothing bad happened.”

Fact: The mere act of bullying and threatening an Attorney General is what’s wrong and possibly criminal. A thief who is caught trying to break into a house is still guilty of a crime. 4/n
Excuse 5: “If she felt pressured, she should have said something and she didn’t.”

Fact: She did. Several times. To Justin Trudeau’s most senior officials and to Trudeau himself. This is blatantly false. 5/n
Excuse 6: “If she felt pressured, she should have resigned.”

Fact: Resigning would have resulted in Justin Trudeau appointing a new Attorney General who would cave to his demands. By not resigning, Jody Wilson-Raybould upheld the rule of law. Then she was fired. 6/6
