Canadians and Americans will be watching as key political players offer testimony in scandals that have rocked both countries. In Ottawa formerattorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould, who’s at the centre of S-N-C-Lavalin affair. will testify in front of the Commons Justice Committee. Justin Trudeau has waived solicitor client privilege in the case but in a letter to the committee, Wilson Raybould says that doesn’t cover her time at Veterans Affairs and could affect what she can say. She’s expected to begin her testimony just after 3 Wednesday afternoon.
And it’s shaping up to be an explosive day in the U-S capital. U-S President Donald Trump’s former personal lawyer Michael Cohen begins his public testimony before the House Oversight committee today. In a copy of his remarks, Michael Cohen says among others things, that the U-S president knew in advance of the Wiki Leaks emails damaging to Hillary Clinton election campaign. He also labels Trump a “cheat.”
