Duterte tells Sereno: I’m not behind your impeachment
President Rodrigo Duterte on Tuesday maintained that he was not behind the impeachment complaint against Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.
“She can ask anybody, I guarantee you. I’ll make a guarantee, magtanong siya diyan kung may nilapitan ako na sinasabi ko, ‘Impeach niyo si Sereno,’” Duterte told reporters in a media interview in Pasay.
Sereno claimed on Monday that Duterte had a hand in the impeachment complaint against her.
But Duterte denied the chief justice’s claims.
“Ma’am Sereno, I’m sorry to tell you and you can investigate the whole town and i-commission mo lahat ng mga journalists who are good at investigative journalism kung may kinausap ako na tao about your impeachment,” he said.
