24 Things We Learned From Nigel Wright's Emails In The Mike Duffy Trial

He was right about things ending badly.

Nigel Wright, the former chief of staff for Prime Minister Stephen Harper, took the stand Wednesday as a Crown witness against former Conservative senator Mike Duffy.

Duffy has pleaded not guilty to 31 charges connected with his inappropriate Senate housing and living expenses, and a $90,000 payment Wright gave him to repay those costs.

On Wednesday, Wright testified he never told Harper who was paying Duffy’s tab. But the lawyer’s 426-page binder of emails released as part of the court proceeding revealed a lot more about what was happening in the Prime Minister’s Office two years ago.
