What is being investigated? And why?
Airbus: there is no connection at all to Mulroney and Airbus. Everyone including the RCMP and the Liberal Party of Canada agreed that there was no such connection.
June 23, 1993, mere days before Mulroney left office: Schreiber has stated that an agreement in principle was made with Mr. Mulroney, but NO money changed hands and no money amounts were discussed.
The 2+ Million dollar defamation settlement: This is in regards to the allegations that Mr. Mulroney was involved somehow in Airbus, and everything that exists out there supports Mr. Mulroney's position on this matter that he was not involved.
300K in cash: While this amount of cash could raise questions, there is no law against using cash in this country. Out of curiosity, at what amount of cash does this become an 'issue'? $20, $200, $2000, $200,000 ?
Mulroney's statement about his dealings with Schreiber: Schreiber confirmed that what Mr. Mulroney said was true, and that he did not have any dealings with KHS on Airbus or any other matter at that time.
The letter to the PMO: This never was an issue as the Privy Council already cleared the matter up.
Again, where is the crime and why is the government investigating?
Update: It was a good day and a bad day.
It looks like a good day for KHS as he was granted bail and can now sleep at home in relative peace, although the media will be all over him for the foreseeable future it will be better than jail.
And someone who is not having such a good day would be Liberal MP Robert Thibault. So Robert, how is that defamation suit from Mr. Mulroney coming along?
