“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 Duterte’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.
