Contrarily, her testimony is still deemed as a major threat to Trudeau's chances of getting reelected, with the polls approaching in October.

Like Wilson-Raybould before him, MacAulay said he didn't see the move to Veterans Affairs as a demotion.

Unusually, the official headquarters for the Department of Veterans Affairs is outside the capital region - it's in Charlottetown, P.E.I. which is MacAulay's home province.

On Wednesday, Wilson-Raybould detailed a "consistent and sustained effort" by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and top political staff to "inappropriately" interfere in her role as justice minister and attorney general to secure a deferred prosecution agreement and avoid a trial on corruption charges for Quebec-based engineering company SNC-Lavalin.

Wilson-Raybould was testified on Wednesday that when she was serving as justice minister past year, the Liberal government officials leaned over her to help construction firm SNC-Lavalin group inc in order to avoid a corruption trial.

"I was sickened and appalled by [Wilson-Raybould's] story of inappropriate and, frankly, borderline illegal pressure brought to bear on her by the highest levels of Justin Trudeau's government", he said, reports CBC.

The prime minister faced a barrage of questions in various public appearances outside of Ottawa on Wilson-Raybould's allegations.

The Commons is not scheduled to sit the next two weeks, but Conservative Leader Andrew Scheer and NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh sent Trudeau a joint letter Friday asking it be recalled so the prime minister can be held to account.

Wilson-Raybould, however, is saying otherwise.

The website says individuals who are registered to lobby the Prime Minister's Office and Ministry of Agriculture and Agri-Food are not permitted to attend the fundraising event. But earlier this month, she had resigned from Trudeau's cabinet; so has the latter's close confidant, Gerry Butts.
