VP Leni Robredo’s lawyer Romulo Macalintal tries to keep his cool upon knowing that SC paves the way of Bongbong Marcos’ electoral protest against his client. He maintains that it is only a procedural matter and Marcos still has to prove if there’s indeed fraud in the 2016 elections. Enough to his lies, he does not have to urge Marcos what to do next. They for sure know what to do next. Sets of evidence are intact and they are ready for hearings.

[VIDEO]: MANILA – The camp of Vice President Leni Robredo is unfazed by the latest developments in the election protest filed by defeated vice- presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr.
Macalintal confronts himself knowing that the COC and ballot counts take time. This case is definitely a long process. This is the reason why the president appoints Bongbong Marcos as DILG secretary – to make use of his brilliance while waiting for the electoral protest to finish. It is speculated that Marcos assumes the post after May 10, this year. Robredo expresses her fear in having Marcos in the administration’s cabinet.
SC’s Discovery that Made them Favor Marcos
The protest contains narrations of ultimate facts on the alleged irregularities and anomalies in the contested clustered precincts. However, Marcos needs to prove in due time,” the PET discloses.
Macalintal Previously on the Other Side with Legarda
Macalintal is also the lawyer of Senator Loren Legarda who contests the VP win of her friend, former Vice President Noli de Castro. He says that the cases are different because the older case lacks merit. Obviously, with all the boxes of concrete evidence in the Marcos electoral protest with matching live witnesses and affidavits, it’s only a matter of time that Bongbong Marcos unseats VP Robredo.
SC Gives the Green Light to Marcos’ Electoral Protest
Despite SC’s green light on Marcos’ protest, the president makes preparations for Marcos’ entry into the Cabinet. Current DILG Secretary Ismael Sueno is also not bothered by reports that Marcos replaces him. He serves at the pleasure of the President which is very noble.
“That’s why it’s unused because it was not used,” Robredo said in a news conference in Naga City recently pertaining to the unused SD cards with data found on them. Even non-lawyers will understand that,” she added. Her comments are proofs that when dealing with the electoral protest, she obviously did not use her head. Vic Rodriguez, Bongbong Marcos’ lawyer explains that the data on unused SD cards are proof that the last election was manipulated.

Unused SD Cards versus Unused Heads
The Robredo camp is quick to react when it comes to news about what the Bongbong Marcos camp discloses with regards to the electoral protest filed against Vice President Leni Robredo.They obviously use their mouths more than their heads. Perhaps this is because they are used to the fact that commercial media would escalate whatever they say. Even if it is brainless. An unused SD card is supposed to be empty whereas an unused brain can still think if they wish to. The question is, why is there data in an unused SD card? Robredo’s answer – that’s why it’s unused just don’t make sense. Can she still think or she is also functioning with an SD card on her head?
Macalintal also has an SD Card on his Head
Marcos now asks to expedite the case filed before the Supreme Court sitting as the Presidential Electoral Tribunal. Romulo Macalintal, Robredo’s lawyer reacts to Marcos’ claims by urging him to drop his election protest against Robredo if he fails to prove that SD cards had been used in poll fraud. Nothing can be said more than that. The statement itself is certainly not from a veteran lawyer’s mind. Maybe from a manipulated SD card.
The public can certainly feel that the Robredo camp is panicking. First, the senate is now trying to impose discipline to their libelous senator Trillanes. Second, President Duterte is not slowing done in his campaigns including his support to Robredo’s rival Bongbong Marcos. He does not have to influence PET’s decision. All evidence are surely pointing to the Liberal Party’s massive electoral fraud.
The mere mention of the name Imelda Marcos, mother of Bongbong Marcos by the Miss Universe candidate, Maxine Medina already ignited the anti-Marcos concern that the return of a Marcos to the executive office is near. One thing is for sure, they can expect a bigger surprise soon. It’s just a matter of time that Robredo must retreat from the post that she allegedly steals, with the help of her Liberal friends.

Dream all you want because the secret servers ‘have nothing to do with the vote count results,’ says lawyer Romulo Macalintal to Marcos – as Marlon Garcia admitted that there were indeed other servers other than the ones approved but results are not passed through them. This may be true but why were the excess servers necessary then? They already breached the cyber crime law and they installed unauthorized servers and that’s okay? They do not have credibility anymore so even if they say that the unapproved servers were just there for display, no one would believe them, only Macalintal! Read this:
Rappler Reported: Veteran election lawyer Romulo Macalintal said on Tuesday, July 26, that the supposed existence of “other servers” during the May 2016 elections won’t bolster the claims of cheating in the vice presidential race. The camp of defeated vice presidential candidate Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr has repeatedly argued that there were unauthorized election servers where the election results could have possibly been tweaked. Marcos filed an election protest against Vice President Leni Robredo before the Presidential Electoral Tribunal on June 29. (READ: ’10 days not enough to answer Marcos election protest’)
It added: In a statement, Macalintal said “Marcos and his supporters are dreaming if they believe Marcos would win in his election protest… on the basis of alleged ‘secret servers.'” “Even granting, just for the sake of argument, that such ‘secret servers’ indeed existed in the last election, said ‘servers’ have nothing to do with the results of the election for any position. They have no means of changing the results, either to add to or deduct from the votes of any candidate,” the lawyer added.
On July 22, the Marcos camp had said that Marlon Garcia, head of Smartmatic’s technical support team, disclosed that there were “several other servers aside from the 3 legally authorized servers.” Smartmatic’s lawyer George Aquino confirmed this in a preliminary investigation before the Manila Prosecutor’s Office, but stressed that the votes went directly to the Central and Transparency Servers.
The Marcos camp also claimed there was a “fourth server” that was not subjected to source code review. This is where the votes could have been rigged, they said, instead of going directly to the official servers. But Parish Pastoral Council for Responsible Voting (PPCRV) IT director William Yu earlier refuted that claim, saying that the transmitted results did not necessarily pass through this server. Macalintal on Tuesday also reiterated his previous stance that Marcos should just present even one of the 94,000 election returns that does not tally with an authentic copy.
The lawyer also again challenged Marcos to show one ballot where a vote for him was credited to Robredo instead. The former senator is seeking a recount in 36,000 precincts located in 27 provinces and cities. He also wants the nullification of election results in Basilan, Maguindanao, and Lanao del Sur, claiming there was massive cheating in those provinces.

Las Piñas Representative Mark Villar is again a congressman of Las Piñas but it might be short lived because of his appointment into the Cabinet of presumptive President Rodrigo Duterte as DPWH secretary.
Atty. Romulo Macalintal told radio dzMM that Villar would still have to take his oath as congressman of Las Piñas as an elected official and serve for 6 months then resign to assume a higher appointed position.
Omnibus Election Code mandates candidates to assume office within six months of winning the elections. Elected officials who refuse to assume office without legal motive may face one to six months imprisonment unless there’s an unexpected physical disability, mandatory rendering of military service or other valid legal motives.
