Atty. Bruce Rivera blames lazy Congressmen for the delay of the impeachment complaint against VP Robreodo

Atty. Bruce V. Rivera blamed some Congressmen for the delay of Vice President Leni Robredo's impeachment.

In his Facebook post, he expressed his disappointment towards Congressmen who failed to do their part in the impeachment. He wrote that they have done their part in the impeachment, but what's delaying the Congressmen in pursuing the process in the removal of the incumbent VP?

The Congressmen, whose salary comes from the hard-earned salaries of the people who wants Robredo out of her office, are not doing their part. They should have been pressuring the Congress because, Rivera and his "Impeach VP Leni Team" does not have the power to do that.

The Liberal Party-list (LP) are not the only ones to blame in the increase of thieves in the government but also the lazy citizens who do not tell their desires to their respective officials.

He stated if this is how we are, then we deserve the kind of government we get. President Rodrigo Duterte cannot do all of this alone, he needs us to cooperate.

Read his post below:

An impeachment complaint is filed against VP Leni by her critics that is still pending and waiting for endorsement coming from the House of Representatives, specifically House Speaker Pantaleon Alvarez.

She was also asked if she hopes the same thing to happen to the impeachment complaint against her. The VP said that they weren't able to hear where the complaints are coming from and if it really has a solid basis.

A group of lawyers led by Bruce Rivera, who dubbed themselves as "Impeach VP Leni Team" conducted a press conference on March 23 to announce their plan to oust the Vice President for using her position to spread 'distortions of reality'. The allegation was due to VP Leni's video message for the side session in an annual meeting of the UN Commisson on Narcotic Drugs where she had joined and raised concerns about President Duterte's war on drugs.

Up to this time, there is still no progress on the impeachment complaint against the VP. They charged her of Graft and Corruption, Culpable Violation of the Constitution and Betrayal of Public Trust.
