Almonte Senator Gregorio Honasan chided former National Security Adviser Jose Almonte for claiming the lawmaker had planned to attack Malacañang and kill then-President Ferdinand Marcos and his family.

In “Endless Journey: A Memoir,” Almonte, founder of the Reform the Armed Forces Movement (RAM), said Honasan, a member of the group, had suggested killing the Marcoses.

But in an interview with reporters at the Senate on Wednesday, Honasan disputed Almonte’s recollection and said other RAM members could be asked about the issue for verification.

The senator also denied the former Cabinet official’s claim that he dissuaded Honasan from launching a coup d’etat during President Corazon Aquino’s term. He said Almonte’s recollection in his memoir was “not supported by fact.”

In an apparent dig at Almonte, Honasan quipped: “My own take is you don’t have to lie or distort history to sell a book.”

Almonte’s memoir, written by journalist and Rappler editor at large Marites Dañguilan Vitug, was launched on Feb. 25.
