Trudeau broke the law, now we need to know if it was criminal.
The criminal code defines obstruction of justice as someone who “wilfully attempts in any manner to obstruct, pervert or defeat the course of justice in a judicial proceeding.”

We know that what Justin Trudeau did in the SNC-Lavalin affair was unethical, now we need to know if what he did was criminal.

The Ethics Commissioner found that Trudeau broke the law — violated the Conflict of Interest Act — in pushing for SNC-Lavalin to get a sweetheart deal to avoid bribery and corruption charges.

What the RCMP need to determine now is whether Trudeau is guilty of obstruction of justice.

“The RCMP is examining this matter carefully with all available information and will take appropriate actions as required,” the RCMP said in a statement.

That doesn’t tell us whether Trudeau is actually under investigation, but he should be.

“The evidence abundantly shows that Mr. Trudeau knowingly sought to influence Ms. Wilson-Raybould both directly and through the actions of his agents,” Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion wrote in his report.

For people that think trying to influence the attorney general not to prosecute a company on bribery and corruption charges is no big deal, stop and think about that.
