House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez said that they could go straight to the impeachment court on SC CJ Maria Lourdes Sereno’s case. But he doesn’t  want to do it to avoid repeating the unfair trial of the late Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona. Alvarez wants to hear the case at the Congress first to see if there is evidence or not. This makes sense at the rate it is going. Previously, only the late Senators Joker Arroyo and Miriam Defensor-Santiago, and now VP Protestant Bongbong Marcos acquit Corona. They all agreed that his failure to disclose assets in his SALNs was not an impeachable offense. Marcos explained how he carefully balanced the pros and cons when he decided for Corona’s acquittal. He’s the last man standing among the 3 wise former Senators.

[VIDEO]: This Wasak episode of Bongbong Marcos explains how Bongbong Marcos got his nickname. Then, the relevance of his acquittal vote during the impeachment of the late Supreme Court Chief Justice Renato Corona followed.

Presidential Influence

The impeachment complaint against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno comes 5 years after her predecessor, the late Renato Corona, was removed from office. Both Sereno and Corona have been publicly called out by presidents.Then-president Benigno Aquino III consistently lashed out against Corona, calling his removal as key to achieving transparency and reforms in the judiciary. 

Lack of Evidence Heard in the Congress

Lawyer Larry Gadon was grilled by not having evidence for Sereno’s manipulative acts at the SC and extravagance on spending. Those were no big deals. The “strongest” argument for impeachment facing Sereno is the allegation of untruthful declaration in her Statement of Assets, Liabilities, and Net Worth (SALN). She has, however, consistently denied these accusations. However, Corona got convicted despite the unclear proofs.

Du30’s Challenge

President Rodrigo Du30 asks Sereno many times to resign. The impeachment complaint filed against her is allegedly supported by him. He previously said he will not meddle with the process. Du30 challenged both Sereno and Ombudsman Conchita Carpio-Morales to resign together with him due to the corruption allegations they all face.

Meaning of Marcos’ Nickname Realized

Bongbong Marcos always sticks with his father when he was little. He was like the bamboo water container called “bongbong.” The older Marcos often carries it when he was a soldier during World War II. Nowadays, the younger Marcos connects with the President regularly.  They are together during relevant functions. He is like the Filipino leader’s sustenance when he runs out of patience while leading the country amidst local and international destructions.  Many believe of the Du30-Marcos tandem to lead the country to progress.
