Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau violated the ethics code when his office pressured officials to drop a corruption case, the ethics commissioner said

How can I explain Canada to Americans? Strong evidence of a crime, grounds for impeachment but we don't have impeachment. Federal police RCMP are controlled by our PM and won't act. Have to wait for an election that he could win with vote fixing, bribes, no electoral college.
I won't be voting for him in #elxn43. However, he didn't break the law. If you read the report today, it's clear he violated ethics code by using his influence to pressure the AG to change her position in a criminal proceeding. JWR saved herself, JT et al by not breaking the law.
After wasting the better part of 2 hours arguing with a literal sock puppet about what a law is and the difference between breaking the law vs committing a crime, let’s bring it back to what the PM and his staff actually did. They attempted to interfere in a criminal proceeding.
