Michaelia Cash’s former media adviser David De Garis has named the Minister’s former COS Ben Davies as his source. A bit odd given Davies’ lawyer has previously argued he had no info relevant to the case. https://t.co/YGIvy1jwcs
BREAKING: Michaelia Cash's former chief of staff Ben Davies has been named in court as the source of a controversial leak to the media about imminent police raids at the AWU https://t.co/ZEIggbTE9w #auspol
So, @SenatorCash staffer, David De Garis, has named her Chief of Staff, Ben Davies, as the source of his information about the AFP union raids. Funny, that's not what Ben's lawyer said.
I wonder who Ben's source was? 🤔
Thickening plot: Michaelia Cash's former media adviser David de Garis ordered by Justice Mordecai Bromberg to name his source on the AWU raids. It was Cash's chief of staff at the time, Ben Davies.
Whiteboards coming out there in parliament? #auspol https://t.co/ceVeH51E5C
David De Garis says it was Michaelia Cash’s then chief of staff, Ben Davies, who told him in advance about AWU raids. De Garis then tipped off media. Says he wanted to get media coverage of one of the first ROC probes. ‘I didn’t understand the significance of what I was doing.’
Latest in #politicslive blog: after David De Garis's request to refuse to answer to avoid self-incrimination was rejected, federal court has heard Michaelia Cash's former COS Ben Davies told her then media adviser, De Garis, that AFP were set to raid AWU https://t.co/zOBn4iQjs8
So we’re meant to believe, as Michaelia Cash claimed in Senate estimates, that she only found out about the raids when she saw them on TV...but we now know her press officer David De Garis tipped off the media after he was informed by her Chief of Staff Ben Davies 🤨😏🧐?#Auspol
Ex-Michaelia Cash staffer David De Garis admits it was Cash's former COS Ben Davies told him about impending raids 'face to face'. Who told Ben Davies about the raids? I'm a gambling man, I would put Cash on it being a Senator. #auspol #ausunions #unionraids #CashGate
Senator Michaelia Cash’s former media adviser David de Garis has been forced to admit it was Cash’s former chief of staff Ben Davies who told him about raids on AWU offices in October 2017. Mr de Garis then leaked that detail to the media.
Ex-Sen Michaelia Cash media adviser David De Garis has told the Fed Court Cash's chief of staff Ben Davies told him about impending raids on @AWUnion offices in a "face to face" conversation in Ben's office on Oct 24 2017 #auspol #ausunions
@MurrayWatt By sheer coincidence Ben Davies former COS to Michaelia Cash has lodged defamation proceedings against @DanWaltonAWU@workmanalice & Buzzfeed. Michaelia Cash will claim because of these proceedings unable to comment. #auspol #AWURaids
Michaelia Cash's former chief of staff, Ben Davies, has lodged defamation proceedings against @DanWaltonAWU, Buzzfeed and journalist Alice Workman. His lawyers reject claims he evaded attempts to serve a subpoena on him in relation to AWU raids.@australianhttps://t.co/YQ14azQ73r
Michaelia Cash is in the dock this Friday. David De Garis says he was informed of the AWU raids by Michaelia Cash's CoS Ben Davies. He then informed several media outlets. #auspol https://t.co/qFk4BvVdmq
And word is that following Bromberg J’s ruling, de Garis has now given up @SenatorCash’s Chief of Staff Ben Davies.
Wonder if we’ll see a Ministerial resignation by the end of the day?
Seriously?! Couldn't the AFP have waited until AFTER the Federal election to break the news that Michaelia Cash's former chief of staff Ben Davies was the source of the leak to the media re the AWU police raids?! #auspol #AWU
David de Garis said he didn’t know where Ben Davies for the information. Davies is to give evidence to a Federal Court hearing later this week. Senator Michaelia Cash is expected in the witness box on Friday. https://t.co/8Q1OdMZQD3
So Michaela Cash's ex-media advisor, David de Garis, says it was Michaela Cash's Chief of Staff, Ben Davies, that leaked to the media about the AFP raids on the AWU.
How long before Michaela Trump starts tweeting "NO COLLUSION!"? 😂
