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.
