Senator Trillanes Called President Duterte As Ampatuan of Maguindanao
By Alon Calinao Dy: Senator Antonio Trillanes IV is back to compare President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to the Ampatuan of Maguindanao and a Colombian Drug Lord Pablo Escobar after self-confessed assassin Edgar Matobato accused the head of state in the killing of several people in Davao City.
Trillanes said that Duterte is worse than Ampatuan family who could kill anybody who is against his administration and worse than drug cartel leader Escobar when he was interviewed by the media at the senate.
Trillanes also warned Senator Cayetano to stop questioning the witness since he consumed a lot of time at the senate during his interrogation to prove the credibility of the witness who most of the time did not answer Cayetano's questions about President Duterte's linked to extrajudicial killings and summary executions.
Though the witness story seemed doubtful, Trillanes said he believes Matobato a "very credible witness." But speaking of being a credible witness, it seemed most people in the senate do not agree with senator Trillanes when he repeatedly blocked questioning on the witness story.
Despite a heated argument between Trillanes and Cayetano during Matobato's testimony, Senator De Lima did not manage well the both camps and obviously was siding at the corner of teammate Trillanes.
