Palace calls Trillanes ‘discredited, disgraced’ senator
By Prince Golez
The spokesman of President Rodrigo Duterte had some harsh words for former Senator Antonio Trillanes IV.
In a Palace briefing Monday, Duterte’s mouthpiece Salvador Panelo did not mince words, calling Trillanes a “discredited” and “disgraced” senator.
Panelo was reacting to the ex-lawmaker’s statement that he was ready to face the “harassment” cases filed by “Duterte’s minions” against him.
“We cannot be wasting time responding to nonsense coming from a discredited, disgraced senator. Hayaan mo na siya,” the Palace official said.
Earlier, Trillanes, who was charged with conspiracy to commit sedition, said he intends to post bail once he arrives in Manila late this week.
His case stemmed from his alleged involvement in the release of “Bikoy” videos that linked Duterte’s family to illegal drugs.
