Canadians are accusing the RCMP of covering for the prime minister after it announced it will not be investigating him for crimes committed during the SNC-Lavalin scandal.
The RCMP has halted its criminal investigation after widespread media reports that the prime minister was under investigation for obstruction of justice.
Bryan Passifiume, a journalist employed by the National Post, announced Monday that “RCMP have reportedly opened an investigation into allegations of prosecutorial obstruction in connection with the SNC-Lavalin affair.”
Later in the day, the RCMP pushed back, stating it was not conducting a criminal investigation into Trudeau. This has lead to speculation that a cover-up is taking place, and the RCMP is protecting Trudeau.
