Oust Duterte matrix just a 'diversionary tactic' - Sen. Kiko Pangilinan




“A diversionary tactic.”
That is the answer of Liberal Party senator Francis “kiko” Pangilinan when asked about the released document by Malacanang linking journalists to a purported destabilization plot to oust President Rodrigo Roa Duterte
The "matrix" includes the Philippine Center for Investigative Journalism, Vera Files, Rappler and its CEO Maria Ressa, who is facing a lot of cases from both a private complainant and from the government.

"Siguro ang mensahe pagka kayo ay manatiling kritiko mangyayari sa inyo yung nangyayari siguro kay Maria Ressa," Pangilinan told ANC's Headstart.
Dapat dito manindigan din ang Rappler and ang Vera Files at PCIJ and mukha namang ganun ang ginagawa nila," Pangilinan said on ANC's Headstart.
The opposition senator was surprised that the Liberal Party was not included in the list.
"Si Presidente na rin ang nagsabi a couple of years ago na sa lima na sinasabi niya, tatlo hindi totoo. Palagay ko isa na ito doon. Mukhang gawa-gawa lang," he said.
Pangilinan said there have been numerous occasions in the past where Malacanang would bring up the ouster plot against the president or makeup a story when big issue is brought up against the administration.
He made an example when last September Sen. Antonio Trillanes IV was pressuring Duterte about secret bank accounts. The President gave a speech urging the public to watch out for his critics supposed move to oust him which he said will be in high gear by October.
