As CP reports, new documents from the RCMP allege Nigel Wright, the Prime Minister’s former chief of staff, broke the law when he paid Mike Duffy $90,000 to repay Mr. Duffy’s expenses.
Nigel Wright’s lawyer passes along the following statement from Mr. Wright.
“My intention was always to secure repayment of funds owed to taxpayers. I acted within the scope of my duties and remain confident that my actions were lawful. I have no further comment at this time.”
