Atty. Rivera blasts on Alejano over his Robredo Vs. Duterte ouster remakrs: Kapal talaga ng apog

Spokesperson of “Impeach Leni Movement”, Atty. Bruce Rivera blasts on Magdalo Representative Gary Alejano due to his remarks about Vice President Leni Robredo versus President Rodrigo Duterte ouster.


In an article published by Philippine Daily Inquirer, Alejano emphasized President Duterte’s allies in the House of Representatives used as a “bargaining chip” the impeachment threat against the VP in order to convince colleagues not to support the complaint filed against the president.

“Ang nakikita ko ditto, ginamit nilang bargaining chips itong possible impeachment complaint against the Vice President and even the Ombudsman para ‘yung mga supports and allies of the Vice President ay hinid po magsuporta sa impeachment complaint against the President. Parang nagkaroon ng, huwag kayong magsusupport diyan, hindi rin kami magfa-file ng impeachment complaint. Parang nagkaroon ng palit-ulo ba,” said Alejano in the article.

Using his social media account on Facebook, Atty. Rivera gae his counter rebuttal to Alejano’s statement calling him “kumag”.

“Ang kapal talaga ng apog nitong kumag na ito. Panuorin mo ang replay ng committee deliberations mo at kung gaano katanga ang mga sagot mo. Sana nagpasama ka kay Sandok para kahit papano may masagot siya na legal argument. Kasi kung ako ang kasama mo dun, simple lang sasabihin ko. The impeachment process is a political process and not a judicial proceeding. Strict adherence to the rules on evidence may not be espoused in the interest of substantial justice. Para at least, may lusot ang kamangmangan na ginawa ninyo,” aid Rivera.

The  avid supporter also said the impeachment agaist Leni shouldn’t be used as a bargaining chip since they’ve already agreed to continue the case despite of Duterte’s disapproval.

“Una, bakit kami maghihirap gumawa ng complaint kung ipambabargain lang naman pala. May naunang Lozano complaint. Eh di yun na lang sana.  Pangalawa, sinuway namin ang utos ng Pangulo na hwag na magfile ng impeachment kay Lugaw. Desisyon namin yun.”

At the end of his post, Bruce said Alejano should wait until the process is over if they traded Leni’s impeachment to Duterte.

“At pwede naming ipaalala sa kanilang mga botante kung ano ang ginawa nila sa impeachment ni Leni. Karamihan sa members ng aming grupo ay nakapagpanalo na ng President dahil lamang sa ingay na ginawa namin.  Kaya din po namin magpatalo ng isang kandidato. Itaga niyo yan sa singit niyong yellow."
