Trudeau denied today that he or his staff “directed” Wilson-Raybould to intervene. At one point, in reply to a journalist’s question, he said in French that he never “asked” her to make any decisions in the case.
“The allegations in the Globe story this morning are false,” Trudeau told reporters during a Toronto-area news conference Thursday morning.
“Neither the current nor the previous attorney general was ever directed by me, or by anyone in my office, to take a decision in this matter.”
WATCH Trudeau lie to the nation & how easily he does so.

Attorney General "duty of confidentiality to client" Only Trudeau himself can waive!!

Justin is the very definition of useful idiot. I doubt his handlers tell him anything of importance – ever – so it is entirely plausible he knows nothing of the SNC-Lavalin affair. Would you trust him with with even taking your fast food order?
