Go ahead Impeach my Dad – Nancy Binay

94

Sen. Nancy Binay on Tuesday dared Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV to file an impeachment complaint against her father, Vice President Jejomar Binay, if the former wanted to hold him accountable for alleged corruption. However, she objected to Trillanes’ suggestion that her father be invited to testify at a Senate investigation into allegations that two buildings constructed during his term as Makati mayor were overpriced. The probe would be headed by the Vice President’s former party mate, Sen. Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, with whom he had a falling out. Inquirer

Earlier, Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, who is detained on charges that he benefited from the P10-billion pork barrel scam, accused Guingona of avoiding a Senate inquiry into the Malampaya fund scam to protect administration allies. Inquirer

Both used to belong to the PDP-Laban party which was part of the United Nationalist Alliance (UNA). The two, however, had a falling out over UNA’s inclusion of former Sen. Juan Miguel Zubiri in its senatorial slate. Pimentel had accused Zubiri of cheating him out of a Senate seat during the 2007 elections. Binay eventually left the PDP-Laban.  Inquirer
