New attorney general ‘under the thumb’ of Trudeau, says Tory Candice Bergen on SNC-Lavalin

“So there are a number of concerns but overall, to me what it looked like is we have a current attorney general who is completely under the thumb of the prime minister,” said Bergen.

“What a comparison between the former attorney general, who is clear, concise, knows the law, is very direct. We heard that in her testimony and David Lametti, who was vague, evasive, didn’t want to give an opinion and I would say he’s doing exactly what the prime minister wants,” Bergen continued.
