Kelly McParland: If no one did anything wrong, why two resignations and a PMO in crisis mode?

When Gerald Butts resigned as Justin Trudeau’s closest and most important adviser Monday, quitting the job that made him the most powerful man in Ottawa other than the prime minister, he offered an official (and somewhat lengthy) explanation.

“The Prime Minister of Canada’s Office is much larger and more important than any of its staff,” he said. It was “in the best interests of the office and its important work for me to step away.”
