Vice President Leni Robredo has just ignored the impeachment threat of House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.

According to the Vice President, it would be difficult to comment on the said issue because Alvarez’ complaint has no basis.

Robredo added that it would be better if the media would ask Alvarez on what his basis on why he plans on pressing impeachment charges against the Vice President.

The Vice President even called Alvarez’ supposed move as irresponsible.

Prior to this, the House Speaker insisted that he is planning on pressing an impeachment case against the Vice President following the video message the latter sent to the United Nations, criticizing the Philippine government’s war on drugs.
