IMPEACH NOYNOY? IT'S DOOMED FROM THE START
FROM THE START
P-Noy meet with Bong impeacheable?
It depends on how they value decency and morality.
So that whether the act of P-Noy in meeting with Bong Revilla during the time when it was critically near the voting time by the senators to adjudge then Chief Justice Renato Corona during the impeachment trial entirely depends on our CONGRESSMEN and SENATORS.
If one-third of our congressmen has a high standard of decency and ethics within the level of USA congressmen, they would perhaps bring forth an impeachment charge against President P-Noy. Under the Constitution, only one-third the total number of congressmen are needed to decide to file an impeachment complaint.
Once one-third decided it, it is automatic that the Senate accepts it and begins the trial.
The Senate has no power to decline the impeachment complaint, called "Articles of Impeachment," once it is filed by one-third the total number of congressmen.
Now, whether the Senate will convict P-Noy for a sin that may be considered "BETRAYAL OF PUBLIC TRUST", it depends again to the standard of decency of the senators who will vote "I CONVICT" or "I ACQUIT."
In my own standard, I want to be strict so that a lesson may be given to the younger generation that no amount of unethical act is permitted in our government that is supposed to be of laws and not of men.
And if I want to be strict, with no exception, then that act of meeting with a senator at the height of an impeachment trial must be declared more than sufficient a sin to be impeached.
The meeting alone under the circumstances when the nation was to decide an issue that was too crucial to the foundations of our State to exist is presumed that P-Noy was making a wheeling-dealing in order to secure the conviction of Corona.
In short, that is already a PRIMA FACIE EVIDENCE that P-Noy committed acts to manipulate the votes for conviction or acquittal of Corona.
Prima facie evidence means that amount of evidence that is sufficient to conclude a proposed fact when not controverted.
However, it is another issue whether P-Noy would be found guilty because the Excellency has the right to defend himself and prove that the meeting was indispensable for another cause for the country and there was no discussion about him dangling a bribe to buy the vote of Bong Revilla.
But there is another prima facie evidence.
It is prima facie evidence to propose a fact that MORE THAN TWO-THIRDS OF OUR CONGRESSMEN AND MORE THAN 16 OF OUR SENATORS ARE MORALLY-WISE INSOLVENT and DECENCY-WISE BANKRUPT.
Why I state this other prima facie?
I will answer it in a debate with any congressman or a senator in any battlefield he or she wants.
For one thing, the rule is: HE WHO COMES TO COURT MUST COME WITH CLEAN HANDS.
So what can you say if these congressmen come to court bringing an Article of Impeachment against Noynoy?
