    Prosecution then and now are both incompetent compare to the two defense teams.

    Mas halata lang ngayon dahil hinde allowed mga private lawyers mag interpolate or something.

    Saka people are more mature na ngayon unlike dati na first time makapanood ng impeachment proceedings.

    Saka baka magulat tayo Sa prosecutions, hinde rin naman pipitsugin mga private prosecutors hinde Lang Kasi nation maps kid dahil hinde allowed mag salita. Galling ng defense they stopped the private prosecutors from engaging them directly.

    so pwede pala mangyari ito?
    pwede mag-issue ang SC ng TRO?

    What will happen if Chief Justice Renato Corona goes to the Supreme Court to ask for a restraining order against his impeachment trial in the Senate? Can the justices be totally objective, since it is their own chief who is on trial? Isn’t this conflict of interest? Ordinarily, judges and justices in this situation inhibit themselves from a case. Or the other side asks them to inhibit themselves. But if all 12 associate members appointed by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo (the same block who earlier voted, along with Corona, to issue the TRO against the hold-departure order of the Department of Justice and allow GMA to leave the country and escape prosecution) inhibited themselves, there would be no Supreme Court left.

    And if the Court issues a TRO against the Senate trial, will the Senate obey it? The senators have held that the impeachment and trial of impeachable officials are the sole prerogative of Congress and the courts cannot meddle in it. In fact, the Senate has its own rules on the conduct of an impeachment trial which are different from the Rules of Court followed by the judiciary.

    What if the Senate does not recognize the TRO? What can the Court do to enforce it? It can cite the senators for contempt, but how would it enforce it? The tribunal has no police powers to enforce its orders. Of course, Corona and his lawyers can boycott the Senate trial. But the Senate can allow the prosecution to present its evidence and witnesses ex parte, meaning the defense will be unable to counter the prosecution’s evidence, cross examine its witnesses, and present its own evidence and witnesses. Without any defense witnesses and evidence, the senators have no choice but to convict Corona.

    the more we need legislative and even constitutional reforms to avoid situations like this.

    sa totoo lang, sa lahat ng kaguluhang ito kasama na yung mga previous issues sa bansa natin, kongreso (both houses) lang naman ang dapat sisihin. ang dami nilang "investigations in aid of legislation" pero bakit walang improvement? bakit ayaw ng charter change? tsk tsk

    Cuevas now speaking, questions changing of sequence of articles of impeachment, says this violates Corona's right to due process.

    The Prosecution team want Article 7 to present? kala ko ba nadala na sila kahapon

    Dapat meron podcast for working peeps.

    Anyway, thanks to a small transistor radio, I'm following the proceedings live on AM.

    Cuevas is still pretty sharp. Tupas, fumbling about with direct questioning of CoC of the SC.

Impeachment against CJ Corona..
