Another government lie exposed.
The Trudeau government has tried claiming that the disgraceful treatment of Vice-Admiral Mark Norman was something completely independent from the Prime Minister.
But now, there’s definitive evidence that’s not the case.
The Globe & Mail is reporting that Justin Trudeau personally set in motion the investigation.
Here’s a key excerpt:
“The RCMP investigation that led to a criminal charge against Vice-Admiral Mark Norman was set in motion by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who was furious at the leak of classified cabinet deliberations involving a $668-million naval supply ship contract, sources say.
Leaks of confidential information are common in Ottawa but rarely does the Prime Minister get involved in summoning the RCMP to investigate. This sends a powerful signal throughout the government, which sources say may have accounted for the energy and effort the RCMP invested in a two-year probe of Vice-Adm. Norman.”
The report also notes Trudeau talking about how Norman would be charged – even before any charges were announced:
“Sources said Mr. Trudeau indicated he felt betrayed that bureaucrats would leak cabinet confidences, especially when the newly elected Liberal government had made efforts to highlight the importance of the public service after a decade of rule by the Harper Conservatives.
However, once it became known that Vice-Adm. Norman was the key RCMP suspect, Mr. Trudeau predicted in 2017 that the naval commander would end up in court even as he denied politically interfering in the matter.”
So, any claims by the Trudeau Liberals that they didn’t ‘interfere’ are obviously false. If Trudeau set in motion what happened to Norman, and if he was claiming that Norman would face charges before he even faced any charges, then there was obviously power being asserted from the top in a way that interfered with the course of justice.
Trudeau must answer for this, and for his other endless lies to the Canadian People.
