The House has declared the impeachment complaint filed by Congressman Gary Alejano against PRRD as insufficient in substance; we maintained that it was from rehashed, trumped up charges aimed at undermining the duly constituted government.
We welcome the Liberal Party’s position not to support any impeachment move against President Rodrigo Duterte.
The supplemental impeachment complaint-affidavit filed by Magdalo Representative Gary Alejano against the President is unfounded, lacking both in form and substance; but more seriously it seems that this is part and parcel of his intention to run for the Senate to replace Senator Trillanes.
While the President previously ruled out the Vice President’s involvement in any destabilization attempt, the release of her UN video message lambasting the Administration’s war on drugs before an international audience and the filing of an impeachment complaint at the House of Representatives which happened on the same day, seems too neat to be written off as mere coincidence.
Rep. Alejano’s impeachment filing is only the latest in an orchestrated effort of a well-funded destabilization campaign against President Rodrigo Duterte. That Alejano filed his case on the last day of the Congressional session, secures him a whole month and a half to malign President Duterte without being challenged by fellow legislators.
