Justice Secretary Vitaliano Aguirre II has belittled the chance of any plan to impeach President Rodrigo Duterte especially one that will be led by Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.
“Trillanes lacks the credibility to mount any case against the President, much more his impeachment with a 97 percent trust rating,” said Aguirre in an interview with ANC’s Karen Davila.
(Davila asked if there was a new trust rating report on Duterte after his record 91 percent rating at the start of his term last June. But Aguirre said he was just given a report that Détente’s trust rating has gone up.)
Trillanes delivered a speech Monday asking the Senate Blue Ribbon committee to investigate the President. “We have seen the different corroborating evidence on the testimony of Mr. Edgar Matobato, we are faced with a very frightening prospect—that is of having a mass murderer as President of the country,” said Trillanes.
But Aguirre said the President was not rattled by Trillanes’ moves.
“He (Trillanes) can’t beat a dead horse or get something out of stone like Matobato who is a perjured, coached witness,” said Aguirre.
“Nobody believes Matobato, (Sen. Leila) de Lima, and especially Trillanes,” said Aguirre. [source]
