corona impeachment: let’s hear it all, prosecution AND defense!

14 December 2011

i like it that chief justice corona is not resigning, instead will face trial in the senate.  it would be good for us all, since phnoy has seen fit to get him impeached by the house of reps, to see due process taking its course, whether toward an acquittal or convicton.  i hope corona does not change his mind over the holidays.

i still remember erap’s trial, all the dirt and rot that surfaced, and the named names, which i suspect was the underlying reason for the representatives-prosecutors’ pouncing on the second-envelope fiasco, any excuse to walk out before the defense could be heard, which may also be the reason certain quarters would prefer that corona do a merceditas na lang?

please lang, no walk-outs, let us hear it all, prosecution AND defense!

meanwhile, listening to lacierda lash back at corona after the latter’s address to the nation only makes me wonder/wander back to why phnoy has gotten so ballistic.  he got his way, after all, on holding gma in the country and getting her arrested (in another blitzkrieg process).  kinda creative naman sila pag gitgitan na.

    “Watch me.”

    The gist of gloria’s Crown’s speech this afternoon.

    …Coming soon, after the MMFF…

    i like the opportunities to wear a toga, and to pronounce inanities and senilities. not quite tragicomedy, but dramacomedy. perhaps.

    “First, under the Constitution, a 2/3 vote of the Senators at the impeachment trial is needed to convict the Chief Justice. Conviction on only one ground is sufficient.”

    Corona does not need any NO votes. All he needs are ABSTAIN votes. And that’s what the prosecutors will have to watch out for. And ABSTAIN vote allows a senator to escape the public’s wrath and spend the contents of his envelope too.

    I’m still waiting for someone to stand up and vouch for the honesty and integrity of each and every member of the Supreme Court. That not one of them has ever sold a decision.

    Haha, you are better off asking for the moon, MB. That is why they say lawyers don’t go to heaven, only perhaps so very very few.

    But you see, you can’t convict on speculation.

    In some places like ours, they are sent to God for judgement when things become so vulgar.
