Trudeau’s chief of staff to testify amid military sexual misconduct scandal | LIVE

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s chief of staff, Katie Telford, is expected to appear before the House of Commons defence committee probing military sexual misconduct on Friday.

The committee heard last month from Elder Marques, a former senior advisor to Trudeau, that he had been asked by either Telford or her assistant to pass an allegation against Gen. Jonathan Vance to bureaucrats in March 2018, one day after the allegation was shared with Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan.

Bureaucrats promptly opened and abandoned that probe.

But Telford appears to have never informed Trudeau of the allegation, which has led to intense scrutiny over what she knew and why she did not tell the prime minister.
