Congressmen reprimanded Atty. Larry Gadon during the continuation of the impeachment hearing against Supreme Court Chief Justice Ma. Lourdes Sereno, for his allegations involving some Senators.
On Monday, Dec. 4, Gadon revealed that an oligarch is bribing Senators to prevent the impeachment of Sereno, since the Senate will serve as the impeachment court.
Antipolo City 2nd District Rep. Romeo Acop and Ako Bicol Rep. Alfredo Garbin scolded Gadon for making baseless statements, which endanger the position of the senators.
Meanwhile, Quezon City 1st District Rep. Vincent Crisologo told Gadon to remain silent if he cannot prove his severe allegations.
“This committee can cite Atty. Gadon for contempt because he is contemptuous of the committee. Inuunahan niya ang ating committee, nasisiraan pa. I think he should answer now what is his proof that indeed there is such a money.” Crisologo said during the hearing.
Gadon on his end said that he himself do not believe such information.
“Ako mismo hindi rin naniniwala dahil sabi ko nga, hindi naman siguradong magpapayag yung mga senador na sila ay i-bribe.” Gadon answered. “Doon mismo sa mga article, kahit lumabas nung article noong Sunday o lumabas kahapon, sinasabi ko doon na hindi ako naniniwala na yung mga senador ay masusuhulan at sila ay titingin sa merits noong case.”
