Sobrang takaw sa TV time: Trillanes names 4 senators who can be better than Dick Gordon as Blue Ribbon chair

0 1

Senator Sonny Trillanes have 4 fellow senators in mind who can replace Sen. Dick Gordon as head of the panel tasked to investigate government shenanigans.

Trillanes wants Gordon replaced as chair of the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee due to the latter’s apparent penchant to monopolize public hearings–even to the point of taking a senator’s allotted time to ask resource speakers.

“The way he conducts committee hearing eh, hindi nakakapagtanong ‘yung ibang senador eh. Nalilihis. Kung saan niya gustong dalhin (ang imbestigasyon) dun niya dadalhin,” he said.

“Kunyari maglalakas siya ng boses. Kunyari galit siya pero naabsuwelto ‘yung mga dapat na igisa sa mga pangyayari ito,” Trillanes said.

Asked who could replace Gordon, Trillanes said, “Bahala na ‘yung majority (bloc).” Trillanes belongs to the minority group.

“Pero sa nakikita ko p’wede naman si (Sen.) Sonny Angara. P’wede naman si (Sen.) Chiz Escudero o kung sinoman. P’wde rin si Sen. (Ping) Lacson o si Sen. Grace Poe. Maraming p’wedeng humawak ng komite na ‘yan,” he added.
