RCMP may have found evidence bolstering a defence PM knew of $90,000 payment to Duffy: former House law clerk
RCMP investigators likely decided not to lay charges against former PMO chief of staff Nigel Wright over the $90,000 he personally gave former Conservative Senator Mike Duffy to repay Senate housing expenses because of evidence that would have given Mr. Wright grounds to say he believed he had Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s consent to make the payment, a former House of Commons law clerk says.
