But today's news made it even messier as Jody Wilson-Raybould, the former attorney general who has been at the the centre of this developing controversy, announced she was resigning from her cabinet position as Veteran's Affair's minister and, perhaps more ominously, that she's lawyering up. I am in the process of obtaining advice on the topics that I am legally permitted to discuss in this matter and as such, have retained the Honourable Thomas Albert Cromwell, CC as counsel.
The newspaper says Wilson-Raybould was shuffled to the veterans affairs portfolio in January when she refused to direct the public prosecutor to forge a remediation deal with the company that would effectively bypass criminal charges.
"Ms. Wilson-Raybould's appointment as minister of justice and attorney general was celebrated by many First Nations people as a tremendous accomplishment and testament to her expertise, experience and intellect", Bellegarde said in a statement.
Before the SNC-Lavalin scandal broke, Jody Wilson-Raybould was a star appointee to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's first cabinet.
"The motion simply was you'll go to veterans affairs, It's lower on the totem pole so to speak, but the other thing was that you know there was a struggle to over where he would put the new rights portfolio and Jody rightfully wanted it in the Attorney General's office, Trudeau chose to give it to Carolyn Bennett, and it's died now, nothing's happened since that took place", said Wilson-Raybould's father.
Trudeau claims he "welcomes" the probe, launched by the Conflict of Interest and Ethics Commissioner on Monday after requests from two New Democrat MPs followed on the heels of an incendiary report published last week in the Globe and Mail that placed him at the center of what the Conservative opposition has termed an "unprecedented" effort to illegally influence a criminal proceeding.
The SNC-Lavalin issue dates back to 2015 when the federal government laid corruption charges against the Quebec based company.
SNC-Lavalin has declined to comment on any of the reports.
Does that mean the Liberals will allow the committee to hear from Wilson-Raybould?

The attorney general must consent to the negotiation of the agreement.
"What happened to me was a real tell-tale sign of how Trudeau's government is operating".
Federal byelections will be held on February 25 in three vacant ridings - Burnaby South, where NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh is hoping to win a seat in the House of Commons, the Ontario riding of York-Simcoe and Montreal's Outremont.
Jody Wilson-Raybould was the first Indigenous person to be Canada's justice minister.
Both leaders have public appearances scheduled later Tuesday - Trudeau in Winnipeg and Scheer in Fredericton.
"If Justin Trudeau and the Liberal government shut the justice committee's work down, it would send a unsafe signal to Canadians about the state of our democracy". And that's a huge blow for Trudeau and the PMO, if indeed they were covering up the affair. She goes on to thank Canadians who have supported her during her time in the federal cabinet and states she will remain as MP for Vancouver-Granville.
In a statement, Settee called the resignation a "significant step backwards" for reconciliation.
He said he's "concerned about the many unanswered questions" surrounding Wilson-Raybould's resignation and added that this is "echoed by many First Nations across the country".
