    President Duterte on his Impeachment case: 'Go for the truth'

    As his impeachment trial begins on Monday, President Rodrigo Roa Duterte urged the House of Representatives to "go for the truth".

    This will be the first step to be taken by Congress before a full-blown hearing will be conducted which will determine the absence of presence of probable cause to impeach Duterte.

    "I expect them to go for the truth. Kung ano ‘yung totoo ‘yun na ‘yon,” the President said.

    Alejano filed the case on the grounds of betrayal of public trust because Duterte allegedly ordered the killing of thousands of drug suspects, getting 2 billion in unexplained wealth, and for abandoning his duty to protect PH territory from China's incursions.

    With a supermajority in the House, Alejano may find it difficult to get the necessary one-third vote of the house for the impeachment case to push through.
