Breaking: Trudeau chief of staff knew about Gen. Vance’s misconduct allegations

DM

Trudeau’s chief of staff Katie Telford knew about the sexual misconduct allegations against General Vance in 2018, a former Trudeau advisor revealed on Friday. In his testimony to the House of Commons standing committee on national defence, Elder Marques (who served as a senior advisor to the prime minister) said that Telford told him to speak with advisors to the defence minister “on an issue relating to the [topic].” Trudeau’s senior staff, alongside Marques, spoke to the Privy Council Office regarding the allegation. “I advised the chief of staff to the prime minister that I was taking this step and I then kept her apprised as the matters developed,” said Marques. The Conservative Defence Critic responded to this revelation by saying “Justin Trudeau’s claim that he was not aware of allegations of sexual misconduct by General Vance is clearly false.” “It is outrageous to believe that everyone around Justin Trudeau was aware of these allegations but the prime minister didn’t know,” he added.
