Privy Council Clerk Michael Wernick, the country's top civil servant, and Nathalie Drouin, deputy minister of justice and deputy attorney general, appeared for a second time before MPs on the Commons Justice committee Wednesday afternoon.

The committee is investigating whether former attorney general Jody Wilson-Raybould was pressured inappropriately by the Prime Minister's Office to allow the Quebec-based engineering firm SNC-Lavalin to avoid a criminal trial on corruption charges related to contracts in Libya. Wilson-Raybould offered explosive testimony on the matter last week.

Gerald Butts, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's former top adviser, appeared before the committee in the morning to offer his side of the SNC-Lavalin story.
