Former federal Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould said Tuesday that she's been removed from the Liberal caucus amid the SNC-Lavalin controversy. 

"I have just been informed by the Prime Minister of Canada that I am removed from the Liberal caucus and as the confirmed Vancouver Granville candidate for the Liberal Party of Canada in the 2019 federal election," said Wilson-Raybould in a tweet just before 7 p.m. local time. 

Wilson-Raybould stepped down from cabinet earlier this year after weeks of speculation over whether Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and members of his staff pressured her to intervene in the criminal prosecution against SNC-Lavalin.
