It was September 15 when Vice President Leni Robredo released this statement in favor of Trillanes and De Lima witness Edgar Matobato.
The allegations raised by Senate witness Edgar Matobato are serious.
We must exhaust all efforts to get to the truth with due regard for our democratic processes and the rule of law.
I enjoin the public to remain vigilant and discerning as the investigation unfolds.
You can even check it on her official page (https://lenirobredo.com/vice-president-leni-robredo-on-the-senate-investigation/). A day later, she somewhat backtracked on her assessment of the obviously coached witness and said “Robredo: Matobato’s statement must be ‘taken with a grain of salt’ (http://www.gmanetwork.com/news/story/581662/news/nation/robredo-matobato-s-statement-must-be-taken-with-a-grain-of-salt#sthash.024N26KI.dpuf)
So what’s really going on here?
If you think Robredo is having doubts, better think again. It’s not about that she is skeptical about the credibility of Matobato, it’s just that her party failed to create the overly employed “people power” uprisings that her party creates whenever they have a problem with a sitting administration.
Matobato’s first appearance was choreographed and it was evident in the succeeding hearing where senators blasted the alleged member of the DDS for his inconsistencies. A word of advice for Trillanes and De Lima: You guys should hire a better script writer.
Your witness is lying and whoever allowed him to sit in the Senate hearing was not prepared for the embarrassing performance of a lifetime.
Trillanes is so used to destabilization efforts, he thought this one would be another reason for him to jumpstart a revolution. What he didn’t count on is that people now are more intelligent, more discerning that his sarsuela is becoming more and more evident as the days go by.
Trillanes, whoever you are working for, it’s not working and your archaic tactics will not attract you supporters, well except maybe for the likes of Leah Navarro and Jim Paredes who are drooling over the sight of President Duterte failing so that Robredo can sit in the People’s Palace.
