Question Period – February 19th 2019: MP Cooper Presses Justice Minister on SNC Coverup

Mr. Speaker, last week, Liberals on the justice committee did the PMO’s bidding by voting against calling key witnesses, including Gerald Butts, the Prime Minister’s top political adviser, as well as the former attorney general.

Allegations that the former attorney general was pressed by officials in the PMO to interfere in a criminal prosecution are as serious as they get. Will the Prime Minister stop the cover-up and allow Butts and the former attorney general to come to committee, and waive any purported solicitor-client privilege involving the former attorney general?
