Gerald Butts wants to talk

The former top advisor to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau,Gerald Butts has now asked to speak on the SNC-Lavalin controversy to the House of Commons Justice Committee.

The request comes a day after damning testimony from former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould.

Butts resigned without a reason, as the focus of the scandal started to turn on his close friend and boss, Justin Trudeau.

The committee still hasn't granted his request to speak.
