It’s been a burning question for weeks in politics — what did Jody Wilson-Raybould do to get bounced out of her job as justice minister in Justin Trudeau’s cabinet?

An update of sorts… the spin is on
As AG she is acting as the government’s lawyer BUT (A) that wouldn’t stop her from denying a false allegation, though I would stop her from confirming it if true; and (B) attorney-client privilege belongs to the client – the government could waive it if it wanted to. https://t.co/FZhzoJIk4r
