Schreiber and Mulroney summoned by House Ethics Committee

And as predicted, guess who doesn't want this to occur? I think we can guess:
Conservative MPs repeatedly referred to the exercise as a "partisan witch hunt."
Poor Conservatives, so principled and all in their effort to ensure there is no public debate on the former Conservative PM's doings.

A motion before the Commons ethics committee to study the so-called Mulroney-Schreiber affair and to request Mr. Schreiber to testify “without delay” passed easily Thursday with the support of the three opposition parties. Conservative MPs voted against the motion.

The committee agreed to call Mr. Schreiber to testify next Tuesday because he faces extradition to Germany on Dec. 1 to face fraud and bribery charges. Mr. Mulroney will be asked to appear Dec. 4, 6 and 11. (emphasis added)
Apparently it's two days set aside for Schreiber. And three days for Mr. Mulroney. Can't see that he'd agree to that. Although he doesn't have much choice.

Schreiber will be under oath. Let the chips fall where they may.
