Oh, the desperate need for a smokescreen, Mr. Speaker.
The Prime Minister's Office has been on the inside of the Senate expense scandal from the beginning. The coverup of the Duffy spending scandal was orchestrated by the PMO. The Conservatives knew full well what their Senate cronies were up to because they were the ones who invited these senators to partisan fundraisers. The Conservative MPs here enabled the corruption of Conservative senators over there.
How can the Prime Minister continue to maintain he is innocent when all the evidence points back to his office?
