CBC.ca politics blogger Kady O'Malley chats weekly with readers on Wednesdays With @Kady. (CBC)

The Senate is debating whether to suspend Senators Duffy, Wallin, and Patrick Brazeau without pay. They would also lose the use of their Senate resources.

Yesterday, Mike Duffy claimed that he's the victim of a cover-up orchestrated by the Prime Minister's Office. His speech raised more questions about what Stephen Harper knew and when.

Pamela Wallin is set to speak in her own defence later today.

Kady O'Malley took your questions and comments about the motions aimed at the three embattled senators, the revelations from Mike Duffy's lawyer and where this story could go next.
