New Fully Bendable Attorney General sees no justification for probe of alleged PMO interference in SNC-Lavalin case

OTTAWA — Current Justice Minister and Attorney General David Lametti said there has been no evidence to justify a committee investigation into whether or not Prime Minister Justin Trudeau or anyone in his office tried to have former justice minister Jody Wilson-Raybould abandon the prosecution of a case against SNC-Lavalin.

“All we’ve heard are allegations in a newspaper,” Lametti, who replaced Wilson-Raybould when she was shuffled into the Veterans’ Affairs portfolio last month, told CTV’s Question Period host Evan Solomon.
