Smart Ass VS the Cool Head
Senator Juan Miguel Zubiri who is notably cool despite being an arnis champion is pushed to his limits when Trillanes accused him and Gordon for whitewashing the bribery involving former Bureau of Immigration officials. The “words war” reveals the nature of each senator. Zubiri who is factual in everything and Trillanes who is into deception, arrogance, and malicious towards his political enemies and fellow senators. He calls Zubiri a cheater.
Trillanes’ Malicious Accusations via the Media
Trillanes announces to the media that Sen. Gordon and Zubiri do not want the bribery scandal of Sec. Aguirre, BI officials and Jack Lam to be investigated because they know that they can’t stop him. Now, they wanted the case to be in their committee to whitewash, the same as the EJK hearings last month, Trillanes explains. Zubiri reminds Trillanes of his rebellion and that he’s lucky for Pnoy’s pardon that’s why he’s out of jail and now serving the Liberal Party in return.
Zubiri Took Offense on Trillanes’ Accusation
Zubiri stresses that he does not care if there will be an investigation. He moves that the bribery scandal at the BI, to be investigated by Gordon’s Senate blue ribbon committee. Zubiri also insists that he has never been accused of engaging in a whitewash ever when he was a member of the House of Representatives.
