Going All In

The Defense’s case is theirs to lose. They only need 8 Senate votes to acquit of which 2 are in the bag, 4-5 leaning, leaving only 1-2 to go from half a dozen undecided.

Yet they are acting as if they are behind in the count.

They have asked Sen. Angara to inhibit himself from the proceedings because he is related by blood to the Prosecution and, supposedly, by money to the Administration. What took them so long to figure this out?

This is the third attempt to impugn certain judges.The first was against Sen. Drilon for bias. The second was against unnamed Senators for potentially selling their votes to Malacanang. Perhaps the Defense should ask Senators Guingona, Pangilinan and Recto to recluse themselves for being in the Liberal Party; Sen. Lacson for disliking Gentleman Mike; Enrile and Joker for being over-age; and Revilla and Lapid for only speaking when spoken to.

Whoever dreamt this new psycho war must be either on medication, unsettled by the CJ’s unfavorable poll ratings, or simply losing their cool. Is the end game starting to take its toll?
