Until Wednesday, Ms Wilson-Raybould had been unable to comment on the matter but was free to do so in front of the justice committee.
Trudeau said Wednesday he won't resign and has essentially dismissed his former minister's testimony as a fabrication.
So where did this all start?
Mr Trudeau said any lobbying by him or his inner circle for engineering giant SNC-Lavalin was done to protect jobs. (SNC.TO) amid warnings that the construction firm might leave Canada. The company wants to settle instead of going to trial.
But the Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP) made a decision to pursue the firm over the bribery allegations rather than negotiating a remediation agreement. A conviction could mean a 10-year ban on federal work for the company, which specializes in civil engineering and construction, and Wilson-Raybould said the government was anxious the SNC-Lavalin would move its headquarters from Montreal to London if that happened.
Wilson-Raybould pulled back the curtain on the effort to change that decision and help the company, in testimony that was aired on national television in its entirety.

What does Trudeau have to say about it?
"We, of course, had discussions about the potential loss of 9,000 jobs in communities across the country, including the potential impact on pensions".
"At the same time, the Prime Minister has been clear that he and his staff always acted appropriately and according to all the rules".
Mr Trudeau has been accused of pressuring his former attorney general to cut a deal with a company facing corruption charges - and retaliating when she refused to play ball. He said jobs and the economy are key issues for his government and it's his job as prime minister to defend Canadian workers. Butts denied pressuring Wilson-Raybould and said he was stepping down so as to not distract the PMO from doing its "vital work".

A simmering political scandal involving Justin Trudeau and his ex-attorney general came to the boil dramatically this week. "And with that mind, we continue to look at all of the future opportunities".
In the Washington Post, India-based journalist Barkha Dutt wrote: "Suddenly, all that charisma and cuteness seems constructed, manufactured and, above all, not serious".
They went everywhere - from the Trudeaus in Indian garb at the ashram where Mahatma Gandhi lived to slipping on a traditional Indian wedding dress and dancing with Bollywood stars. "That is a fundamental role of a Canadian prime minister", Trudeau said. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall. Unlike in the United Kingdom and USA, the two roles are held by the same person.
