Why do the liberals keep stonewalling any investigations? Giving the other parties fuel. This won't workout for them.The RCMP has had their attempts to look into potential obstruction of justice in the SNC-Lavalin affair blocked by the Trudeau government.
According to another explosive report from The Globe and Mail, Ottawa refused to lift cabinet confidentiality for all witnesses, seriously limiting the capacity for the RCMP to actually look into the matter.
According to the report, sources were allegedly told to not discuss matters regarding the scandal with police officials.
The reason behind the secrecy was cabinet confidentiality. Liberals say that a waiver for confidentiality was not provided by the Clerk of the Privy Council, meaning that people in the know-how did not have the privilege to speak to the RCMP or the Ethics Commissioner.
Earlier in the year, Ethics Commissioner Mario Dion faced similar stonewalling during his inquiries which accumulated in the Trudeau II report alleging that the prime minister had broken ethics laws.
Around the same time that the RCMP allegedly investigated the matter, the Conservative Party was requesting that the national police force look into the affair.
What is SNC?
A total mess. Essentially multiple cabinet resignations as a result of "allegedly" forcing the then attorney general to make a deal with a company which broke Canadian and international law so the Liberals wouldn't lose Quebec in the upcoming election.
