DAY 27

THE IMPEACHMENT TRIAL of Chief Justice Renato Corona resumed Monday, March 12. The Defense panel’s first witness was a dud congressman.


The Defense panel was able to present only one sourgrape witness on Day 27 of the Corona impeachment trial. Navotas Rep. Tobias Tiangco was the day’s mane attraction.

According to Defense lawyers, the testimony of Navotas Rep. Toby Tiangco proved that the impeachment complaint was “railroaded and politically motivated.” Ok, tell us something we don’t know.

Congressman Toby Tiangco didn’t sign the impeachment complaint against CJ Corona because he believed it lacked probable cause. As a result, the Budget Department delayed the release of probable cash.

According to Congressman Tiangco, he almost signed the Corona impeachment complaint because, “I don’t want to earn the ire of the most powerful man in the country.” And Vice President Jejomar Binay was like, “O, ano na namang ginawa ko?”

Before Tiangco took the witness stand, prosecution panel manager and Cavite Representative Joseph Emilio Abaya warned him against exhibiting “disorderly behavior” that could possibly be interpreted as destructive to the image of Congress. Abaya didn’t respond though when reporters asked, “Is there anything left to destroy?”

Prior to Toby Tiangco’s Senate appearance, House Majority Leader Neptali Gonzales III reportedly threatened to expel the Navotas solon. Sought for reaction on Tiangco’s revelations, Gonzales said, “I just want him to dye.”

Cong. Niel Tupas said Toby Tiangco’s testimony was “impertinent, irrelevant, and immaterial.” To which Justice Serafin Cuevas said, “Imitator!”

Contempt
Defense lawyer Jose Judd Roy III is in trouble. Attorney Roy was cited for indirect contempt by the Senate… for his hideous default pic on Twitter.

  3. Just read a dismissive one paragraph apology from pdi,not even mentioning why.i am so angry that politicking of our so called leaders who are at best hypocrites and media biases have managed to throw away values that make us human…glorifying vengefulness and seeing the worst in others.never did i believe that the current circus is for a noble cause…mga kababayan dont be blind,think think,be analytical, educate yourselves continiously. Reminds me of the communist purge and its attendant propaganda methods.
