#LavScam: RCMP confirm probe underway into Trudeau and PMO

Finally.

After seizing Gerald Butts’ government-issue laptop and cell phone – after all of the senior PMO staff lawyered up – one would’ve thought the criminal probe was already underway.

At least they have now confirmed that it is.

How helpful is it that your party and your leader are the target of a major criminal investigation during an election? Not very.

Could they lose the election because of this? They could.

Do they deserve to lose because of LavScam?

Oh yes. Yes, yes, yes.

Here’s the official statement from the Mounties:

The RCMP is examining this matter carefully with all available information and will take appropriate actions as required.”

I just did a Sun hit on this very issue. I’ll post it as soon as it is available.

    About bloody time! Guess the Mounties couldn’t ignore the stench coming off of Parliament Hill anymore.

    Moreso than DuffyGate, moreso than AdScam, this is a scandal for the ages; trying to subvert to course of justice and influence its outcome is absolutely reprehensible. This den of thieves MUST be brought to heel.

    Chatting politics with Liberals: JT is slick; has not come as advertised; and he’s deeply unqualified for the position. But they detest the Cons/Reformites. Libs two options: remain loyal to the Red brand. Or, stay Home, come voting day. Their quandary.

  3. David Neill says:

    Considering the criminal investigation and trial into Mike Duffy which looks like peanuts compared to what has been going on with the PMO and SNC. My respect for the RCMP is on the line with this, will they sweep this under the rug?

    I know, to echo Mel Brooks, comedy is tragedy plus distance, but I increasingly come to your site for light relief from the day to day socio-economic-political-cultural self-harm that is Brexit. Your friend, correspondent and Room 531 alumni…all the way from Airstrip One.

    Heh, I wonder if Ivison new Trudeau book is going to go into 2nd Edition already. 😉

  6. The Doctor says:

    The average hard core Liberal supporter doesn’t give a shit. That’s the sad reality. At least if my partisan Liberal Facebook friends are any indication.

    • Lawrence Barry says:

      Agreed – a horrible condemnation on their ability to know right from wrong. Morally and ethically bankrupt. Doesn’t say a lot about the quality of the up-bringing and values instilled by dear old mom and dad. A massive fail on their part. Embarassing.

    • Des says:

      Ah yes, true. However, thankfully, the majority of Canadians are not ideologues.

    • Vancouverois says:

      Alas, you are right. I’m genuinely shocked and disappointed at how many people seem willing to parrot the absurd narratives being promoted by the Trudeau cult.

      I can only hope that other voters will start to see how totally crazy this is.

  7. Doug says:

    If there is some malfeasance, no way will the RCMP be able to report on anything substantive for months

  8. Zacc redux. Remember how well that went?

  9. Keith says:

    The most disgusting, arrogant, divisive, corrupt, incompetent “leader” ever.I could go on but you get the point. This guy is a moron

  10. Ronald O'Dowd says:

    SNC-LAVALIN: the only remaining question tonight is whether Trudeau and Morneau are more confidently arrogant or just plain stupid.

  11. Gilbert says:

    This is great news. The only hope for the Liberals now is a very negative campaign, but I don’t think it will work. They’ll say that the Conversatives will cut all services, will make abortion illegal, will give big tax breaks to the rich, will loosen environmental regulations, and will be super friendly with President Trump, but it won’t work!

  12. Gary Rumsey says:

    Trudeau is an arrogant elitist who can look you straight in the eye and lie and lie and lie. He is not fit to run this country and if he had any principles would step down..he refuses to apologize to Canada or the honest lady he threw under the bus…I hope this RCMP investigation is not just a scam and if nothing comes out of this we know how honest our Federal police force is….Teudeau, do Canada a favor and get lost
