Gerald Butts on the SNC-Lavalin affair: What you missed from Wednesday’s hearings, and what it means

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s best friend and former top aide denied Wednesday that Jody Wilson-Raybould was inappropriately pressed to intervene in the SNC-Lavalin case. Gerald Butts, speaking to the House justice committee, instead said that she hadn’t voiced her concerns until after she left the attorney-general’s job: “I firmly believe nothing inappropriate occurred here and nothing inappropriate was alleged to have occurred until after the cabinet shuffle.”
