The National Post has narrowed the focus of the Cadman bribery accusations to this:
The person on trial is the person on tape admitting that "individuals" representing the Conservative Party of Canada were in last-ditch discussions to procure Mr. Cadman's pivotal vote at a critical time for a teetering Liberal government.
Instead of clearing that up, Mr. Harper has now unleashed lawyers to muffle the noise with a defamation action against the Liberals for alleging on their Web site that he'd known about a Cadman bribe. If the Prime Minister was trying to turtle the Liberals back inside their political shells, he apparently misjudged Stephane Dion.
Instead of obsfucating, Mr. Harper should be authorising an RCMP investigation. When Don Martin starts pressing the Conservative party on accusations of corruption, it is time to bring down the Government and set the RCMP to uncovering the facts.
