"You cannot convict me because we are all guilty. No one can do right because we are all evil.”
Guess who said that? None other than the star accused in his impeachment case.
Just for laughs, we have this profile pic from Facebook. It is a "sin" to have fun on the misery
of other people, even if self-inflected on their part.
And we have this more serious news item
Corona in ICU! for possible Heart Attack!-sc spokesman
Corona might turn to be a "hanging witness" if he refuses to be cross-examined! Senate President and presiding officer Juan Ponce Enrile has warned the defense team that Corona’s testimony would be stricken off (expunged) from the court records, and the senator-judges would make a decision on the basis of previous evidence if the magistrate does not return to the impeachment court on Wednesday, (today!), for cross-examination.
Enrile was outraged when Corona capped his lengthy opening statement by saying, “And now the chief justice of the Republic of the Philippines wishes to be excused,” before briskly walking out of the Senate hall despite the Senate President’s appeal for him to come back because he had not yet been discharged.
The impeachment trial has surely unmasked Corona as an ordinary scheming mortal. Too bad he has blocked all routes to a more dignified exit from the supreme court.
Remember folks, it all started with him accepting the midnight appointment as Chief Justice from the previous scandal ridden president, Gloria Macapagal Arroyo.
