It’s no brainer. If the president is impeached, who would benefit? The law says the President and the Vice-President may be removed from office through impeachment for, and conviction of, culpable violation of the Constitution, treason, bribery, graft and corruption, other high crimes, or betrayal of public trust. Upon watching VP Leni Robredo’s video submitted to the UN where she attacks the administration’s drug war, the Solicitor General concludes that she is guilty of the treason act which is an impeachable case.

[VIDEO]: Alvarez eyes impeachment rap vs Robredo this time
Speaker of the House Pantaleon Alvarez refuses to call Robredo Vice President. He addresses her as “lady” because he is not sure if she really wins in the election. Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest is still ongoing. Massive concrete proofs of fraudulent activities are gathered from legible voters themselves. Evidence are from both digital and manual processes.
Robredo’s spokesperson Georgina Hernandez Even Magdalo Party-list Rep Gary Alejano said that it is only the Magdalo that is behind the president’s impeachment complaint. Robredo denies this herself. She also said that reports are sent to the DILG and PNP on her “exchange heads” revelation but they are ignored. Real people allegedly make this complaint at her office. The video was also submitted to the UN since February so, the coincidence with the impeachment filing date is not within her control, she added.
Act of Treason
Alvarez condemns Robredo’s video and says that she clearly does not have the basis of her allegations. The near recount of votes just scares her. She knows she does not have an edge over Bongbong Marcos. He is certain that Robredo has a “direct hand” in the President’s impeachment complaint filed by Magdalo. Treason is the crime of betraying one’s country, especially by attempting to overthrow the government. Senate President Koko Pimental is next in line to Robredo for the VP post and then Alvarez is next to Pimentel as the Speaker of the House of Representatives. Senator Alan Peter Cayetano can only be appointed by the President once he becomes a cabinet member and the first two successors are not qualified.
