The Conservative Party of Canada posted and quickly deleted a tweet Tuesday declaring that the "RCMP confirms Justin Trudeau is under investigation for the SNC-Lavalin corruption scandal."

The headline-grabbing tweet came after RCMP Commissioner Brenda Lucki was asked about the SNC-Lavalin affair during a press conference Tuesday on the arrest of Cameron Ortis, a top RCMP intelligence officer now facing seven charges.

"Today we're here for the Mr. Ortis investigation so I don't want to comment very much. But we do take all investigations very seriously and investigate to the fullest," Lucki said.
