Nigel Wright never charged for role in scandal.
It started up again this month.
After six days in the witness box, including five under intense cross-examination, Nigel Wright wrapped up his testimony
Harper's former chief of staff Nigel Wright is completing his last day of testimony at Duffy's fraud, breach of trust and bribery trial.
The Crown charged that the questioning from Duffy's lawyer was "politically motivated."
Nigel Wright, the prime minister's former chief of staff, was asked to explain to the court what he told his boss about a plan to have Mike Duffy repay his Senate living expenses in 2013.
Some very interesting testimony and more emails!
Nigel Wright has been testifying all week at the trial and is currently being cross examined by Mike Duffy's lawyer Donald Bayne.
Wright, a wealthy man, delivered this tale with composure and sangfroid. In Nigel's world, writing a $90,000 cheque to a senator in need falls into the same category as taking young Conservative interns to lunch. Just one of those things one does for the less fortunate.
Harper's current chief of staff had been told in a direct email that his predecessor, Wright, was preparing to repay Duffy's Senate claims.
