Investigating “LeniLeaks” is not the priority cabinet task now – because some senate members who hate the guts of the president don’t want to investigate it. However, some are into protecting the president and so they will do everything to make him safe. Martin Andanar expresses his belief that the opposition is a bit unfair to the president. They do not give him the so-called honeymoon period. They are also quick to judge that he does not respect human rights amidst false media reports by some entities.

[VIDEO]: Is the “LeniLeaks” controversy proof that there is an ouster plot against President Duterte? One political observer believes the LeniLeaks controversy only shows the campaign and counter-campaign of the Duterte administration and the opposition.
Pnoy vs Duterte’s Honeymoon Period
Pnoy’s honeymoon period in the presidency lasted one year – but Duterte only asks for six months. They should be considerate just like the leniency of the Duterte administration with their aggressive calls for him to step down or resign.
“LeniLeaks” not in Cabinet Agenda
A leak of emails from the supporters of Vice President Leni Robredo that call for the ouster of President Rodrigo Duterte is an issue being treated with “concern.” However, Presidential Spokesperson Ernesto Abella, however, clarifies that “LeniLeaks,” is not on the agenda of the cabinet meeting.
Duterte’s High Approval and Trust Rating
Anti-Duterte who are overseas must respect what the majority of the Filipinos think about their president. They are noted to disagree of the President’s support to Bongbong Marcos as well, that is why they push Robredo to fight. Duterte has very high approval and trust rating. Most people trust his dealings with Marcos. Those who disagree can express their opinions all they want through social media because they have the rights according to freedom of expression – but when they come home, after enjoying the cool air elsewhere, they have to face the music when they are in the country. It is another story when they initiate chaos locally. That would be against the law. The government will run after them if they do that.
Not Necessarily Members of the Liberal Party
Members of the Liberal Party are only about 30 members now because some of them already transferred to Duterte’s political party. Andanar mentioned that there’s a possibility that some politicians who do not belong to the Liberal Party can also go against the president. This is the reason why he and Esperon want to investigate the matter.
