Koko Pimentel said that a human being can make mistakes. Leni Robredo can still put the records straight with the UN. Robredo’s apology is crucial with or without impeachment for the good of the country. Like what House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez said, her video message to the UN made the country looked bad. She’s like telling tourists not to visit the Philippines because it’s a dangerous country with her extra-judicial killings claim.

[VIDEO]: Kumpiyansa naman daw si Senate President Koko Pimentel na makakakuha ng sapat na numero ang pinaplanong impeachment case laban kay Vice-President Leni Robredo. Pero may impeachment man o wala, dapat daw itama ng pangalawang pangulo ang pahayag sa video message na ipinadala sa pagtitipon ng United Nations.
Status of Impeachments for the LP
Deputy Speaker Romero Quimbo of Marikina said that lawmakers do not want the chamber to be used “for political infighting.” It’s not the right timing for impeachment complaint filings. Most Liberal Party or LP members believe that both the President and the Vice President and all elected officers are given at least a year to fulfill their promises, he explained. The House of Representatives is also on break until May.
One-Third Requirement in the House is Easy
Economic sabotage and treason are the possible grounds of impeachment against Leni Robredo from the Vice Presidential post. The administration has the super majority so to impeach Robredo is very handy. They can get more than enough number of votes that can remove her from the OVP.
Drilon for Robredo
Senator Drilon, as usual, would always defend his political party. He said that a video is not a sufficient evidence for the betrayal of public trust. However, Speaker Alvarez and Pimentel disagrees with this. Even Solicitor General Calida offered his office’s assistant to Alvarez whenever he sponsors the impeachment complaint against Robredo.
Rights under Democracy?
Just like in history, the evils of the world always use human rights reasoning to cover up their wrongdoings. Robredo is now an image of a power-hungry woman who would do anything just to claim the presidency. Nevertheless, she still has to prove that she won during the 2016 elections. Bongbong Marcos’ protest against her is still ongoing.
