Before a stunned audience of senators and reporters in the Senate gallery, Duffy said Harper told him, in the presence of his then chief of staff Nigel Wright, it was the perception of the "base" that was important, not what Duffy said about his own innocence. After Duffy said he didn't have the money, he related, "Nigel Wright said, 'Don't worry, I'll write the cheque.'"
On Monday, Duffy's lawyer levelled bombshell allegations at the Prime Minister's Office, saying his client's living expenses were "cleared from Day 1" by the office of LeBreton, who was then Senate government leader, and when they later became controversial, Duffy was pressured to take a deal from the PMO or face removal from his seat.

I want to believe this could go somewhere, but Harper will likely slither away from this too.
...The longer this goes on, the more he believes that people will shout to abolish the senate, and so far the polls are rising with that viewpoint, which would fit into his plan. If the cry becomes loud enough, then he will have fulfilled his election promise by abolishing it.
