This just doesn't add up, unless they meant "the documents were ready to go into the shreader or the fireplace" or what have you at that point?Conservative MP Michael Barrett questioned how Speakers' Spotlight could confirm the authenticity of Trudeau's records after having destroyed their own copies of them. "Interestingly, this committee ordered those documents in the previous session,” Barrett said, further arguing that “Canadians need these answers."
Barrett noted that Speakers' Spotlight had previously asked for an extension to prepare the documents for the committee, a request which was granted. "The committee granted them all the time that was requested," Barrett said. "On the eve that those documents were to be released to the committee, and on the day that illegally redacted documents were released to the Finance Committee, Justin Trudeau prorogued parliament," he noted. "He shut down the House and locked out committees."
"Since that time, Speakers' Spotlight has communicated with the committee clerk once this session started, and even said the documents were ready to go."
