After Senator Antonio Trillanes called the Senate Justice Committee report on EJK “a piece of garbage” Senator Gordon broke his silence and lashed back to the former soldier turned politician.
In an interview, Senator Gordon was saddened by the statement of Trillanes on the hard work of his colleague who investigated the alleged state sponsored killings of the Duterte administration for months.
“I’m sorry that he said that about his fellow senators. I don’t know where he comes from and he calls hard work garbage,” he said.
Gordon said that Trillanes cannot call the report as ‘garbage’ just because he didn’t like the result of the investigation.
He also said that if Trillanes want to prove something, he must show something convincing to the committee.
Gordon also believe that Senator Trillanes remark was attributed to his ‘lack of law education background’
“Maybe sa kanya hindi lang mapaunlakan ang gusto niyang palabasin. Hindi kasi abogado eh. Kung gusto mong maipalabas kailangan mapatunayan mo. Kung di mo mapatunayan ‘wag mong sasabihing garbage.. Ito nga sasabihin ko sa kanya, it takes one to know one.” Gordon added.
In the committee report, Gordon slammed Trillanes and De Lima for walking out of the hearings. He said that “A senator doesn’t do that”
According to the report there is also state sponsored killings of drug suspects that made Trillanes disappointed.
