Senators Comment on Leonen’s Impeachment
Bongbong Marcos’ Ploy?
Senators Kiko Pangilinan and Risa Hontiveros have something to say. Basically about the impeachment case against Supreme Court Associate Justice Marvic Leonen. It is a part of an elaborate conspiracy. This is to boost Bongbong Marcos’ chances of winning his electoral protest vs. Leni Robredo, Pangilinan said. Hontiveros calls the impeachment complaint a distraction. The one that will only drag lawmakers and the public into a pointless political fiasco, she added. Netizens can’t help but answer their comments.
Netizens made fun of Senator Pangilinan with memes showing his double standard. This was his verdict during the impeachment of the late Chief Justice Renato Corona: Failure to declare a realistic SALN annually for nearly a decade is dishonesty and a culpable violation of the Constitution. Now, he’s blaming Bongbong Marcos for Leonen’s case.
Nick Nangit of NCN Law bashes both Senators. He implies that perhaps Pangilinan and Hontiveros may have something to do with Robredo’s cheating in 2016. That’s why they are afraid of Marcos. The video upload tackles the issue in detail. It revolves around Pangilinan making an excuse using the pandemic. Plus correcting Hontiveros that the whole country will benefit from the outcome of BBM’s protest.
