Anti-Duterte Senator Antonio Trillanes IV has already embarrassed himself in front of an international audience but he still shows no signs of relenting as he brazenly plods on through this travesty of an issue where he insists that Presidential son and Davao City Vice Mayor Paolo “Pulong” Duterte is involved in the smuggling of drugs in the country.

In the most recently aired public hearing, Trillianes repeatedly asked whistleblower Mark Taguba an insane number of times –– regarding Pulong’s involvement with the so-called Davao group responsible for collecting tara in the BOC operations. However, Taguba, who recently pointed out five Bureau of Customs (BOC) executives of accepting bribes, was adamant in clarifying that Vice Mayor Duterte’s having been connected to the group was merely hearsay.

According to Taguba, a certain alias ”Small” claimed that they were thick with the Vice Mayor and he (Taguba) assumed that Paolo Duterte was the vice mayor in question. He didn’t bother to verify it, he said, because it was more important to him to process the shipment that he was tasked to broker.
Sen. Richard Gordon then asserted that Taguba should be clear as to what was only hearsay and what he knew to be fact.

Sen. Manny Pacquiao also reprimanded Taguba, telling him not to mention names of people or groups especially if it was only from hearsay and if he did not have any actual personal knowledge.

Trillanes, armed with photos maliciously implying a close connection between Vice Mayor Duterte and the businessman, next asked Kenneth Dong whether he was friends with Pulong, to which Dong replied that he and the Vice Mayor were merely acquaintances.

Visibly undeterred, Trillianes later on grilled BOC Deputy Commissioner Gerardo Gambala whether he has heard any stories about the president’s son sinking his hands into BOC transactions.
Gambala answered that he has heard nothing of the sort.

Seriously, what REALLY is the point that this international shame of a senator is trying to make?
