Go ahead, make my day: Trillanes shrugs off ethics complaint
Senator Sonny Trillanes on Thursday said the likes of Sen. Dick Gordon are not the kind of people who can force him to “scamper away.”
Trillanes stressed this point amid Gordon’s threat to file an ethics complaint against him for issuing foul remarks during the Senate probe on the smuggling of P6.4 billion shabu from China.
“Go ahead. Kay Duterte nga hindi ako natatakot, sa kanya pa? Sa ethics case pa?” Trillanes told reporters Thursday evening.
“Sayang ang oras niya diyan na tatakutin ako. Gawin na lang niya at tignan natin kung papanong kalalabasan,” he said.
Trillanes irked Gordon when he said the Senate Blue Ribbon Committee, headed by the latter, has turned into a “komite de abswelto.”
He made the remark in disgust over the apparent “hesitation” of Gordon to summon Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo “Pulong” Duterte and his brother-in-law Manases “Mans” Carpio to the smuggling probe.
Alleged customs fixer Mark Taguba earlier claimed that “for a fee” he sought “help” from the so-called Davao Group to facilitate his shipments. Taguba said he heard “loud whispers” at the BoC that Pulong and Mans belong to the Davao Group.
