Wilson-Raybould defends secret recording that led to her ouster, says ‘something very dangerous’ loomed

Former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould is defending the secret recording of Clerk of the Privy Council Michael Wernick that appears to have tipped the scales in Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s decision to eject her from caucus.

On Tuesday night, Trudeau said the secret recording of the phone call, which Wilson-Raybould had described as one in which Wernick made “veiled threats” against her, was “unconscionable” and that the trust between caucus and her had been broken.
