“Who is he to tell us what to do? Hindi lang sya ang halal na senador. Hindi kami ang nasa likod nung impeachment complaint ngunit hindi rin kami mga tutang sunod-sunuran,” the senator said in a statement.
Kiko reiterated that the Liberal Party is not behind the impeachment charge against President Duterte.
“Pimentel et al stripped us of our committee chairmanships for not toeing the admin line on extrajudicial killings, the Marcos burial, the Lascañas hearing and the BI hearings and the he expects us to denounce the impeachment proceedings to prove to him we aren’t behind the filing of the complaint?”
In a press conference that same day, urged LP’s to condemn the impeachment case to prove that they are not part of an alleged destabilization plot against the President Duterte.
"If they are really not behind this impeachment, they should denounce the impeachment against Duterte, denounce the people behind the impeachment against Duterte," Pimentel earlier said.
Recently, Liberal Senators Drilon, Aquino, Pangilinan and Hontiveros were removed from their key posts at the senate.
Minority Leader Ralph Recto, also a Liberal, was elected Senate president pro tempore to replace Drilon, who is now minority leader.
