Senator Antonio Trillanes IV must be in great despair upon knowing that Leni Robredo accepted the President’s dinner invite with her family. He previously lamented that she wasn’t even given full discretion to appoint her own people in her department -and even kicked her out of the Cabinet. Now, he’s doing it again. Only the naive would be fooled,” Trillanes stressed.

[VIDEO]: VP Leni tinaggap na ang dinner invitation ng Pangulo at may birthday wish
The questionable Vice President accepted the dinner invite but no specific date yet since the president stays in Davao City for the Holy Week. Interior Secretary Mike Sueno told her that it is aimed to happen after Holy Week. There’s no problem in Robredo’s side. She said that she would show up “anytime” based on Du30’s availability.
She is grateful that the President mentioned that he was not in favor of impeachment moves. He cited that a year had not even lapsed since they were elected. Robredo agrees that they should instead buckle down to work. Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez and DOJ Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre still pursues the impeachment moves against her despite the president’s opinion.
Betrayal of Public Trust
Betrayal of public trust based on her video to a UN event is one of the grounds under the Constitution for the impeachment of an official, Alvarez said. She humiliated the Filipinos before the international community with her drug war pronouncements. Aguirre also said that what she did hurts the economy. In fact, Tourism Secretary Wanda Teo’s team already have difficulties in selling the Philippines as a tourist destination. OFWs are also treated indifferently because of her unfounded revelations.
Lawmakers are appalled with Trillanes’ comment on the Robredo-Du30 dinner. Chief presidential legal counsel Secretary Salvador Panelo said there’s nothing unusual with the invite. It was also suggested for Trillanes to join the dinner. Senator Ping Lacson almost blurts out for Trillanes, not to be a killjoy. What is he afraid of?
