BANALS ADMISSION FULL OF HOLES!
There are a LOT OF HOLES in the admission of Quezon City Rep. Jorge Banal that he had visited PSBank Katipunan branch manager and
impeachment trial prosecution witness Annabelle Tiongson. Corona
Banal said he did not notify his colleagues of his visit because he did not want to add to the strain they were already experiencing.
His colleagues in the prosecution have been TIRELESSLY giving press briefings every day of the trial and in appearing in or grating interviews in every TV and radio show possible to ventilate their case.
What strain is he talking about?
If he’s not lying, will Banal concede that he was STUPID enough not to realize the importance of the bank record to his colleagues in the prosecution? I’ll bet a thousand to one, guys, he won’t.
Banal told media people “District ko kasi yung bank, medyo nagba-baka-sakal ako.” Nagbabaka-sakali saan o para ano (Taking a chance at what)?
He’s not a prosecutor. Neither is he the one who calls the shots in the prosecution. The prosecution’s boss is lead prosecutor Rep. Niel Tupas Jr. So there’s NO LOGICAL REASON why he should conceal his visit to Tiongson.
Prosecution spokesman Miro Quimbo told reporters “many of us did not know of the document.” Take note, people, just MANY, NOT ALL OF THEM in the prosecution.
So if Quimbo is telling the truth, OTHER PEOPLE in the prosecution KNEW of the document in Banal’s possession. Why was Banal SELECTIVE in revealing what he had?
Banal said he discovered the folded, one-page photocopy of the bank record in his driveway. But he did not say when and how, and what did he initially do, considering what the document was.
Being a congressman, surely he had bodyguards, and maids or houseboys. He did not say how come these people didn’t see it first.
Besides, why does it have to be him to whom the document would be entrusted to? Why not the prosecution spokesmen or the prosecutors themselves?
Banal said he went to the bank the next day to ask about the document. But HE DID NOT LEAVE the document with Tiongson. Quimbo said what Banal left was his business card.
Obviously, Banal REALIZED THE IMPORTANCE of the document. Otherwise, he WOULD HAVE LEFT it if he had deemed it as just another ordinary leaked document with no value to him or his colleagues.
So again, WHY did he have to conceal it?
Your floor, boys and girls.

BE THE JUDGE IF DRILON’S BIASED!

If it's in the pursuit of uncovering the bank leak, fine. If it is to fish for more evidence against the CJ, then it is illegal. Miriam already made this clear with complete details, yet today, again, they muddled the issue. Hirap talaga pag absent si Miriam. When the cat is away, the lapdogs will play.

No matter how much he denies it, it is still very obvious that he is acting like a prosecutor. This guy is confused about his duty, whether he is a judge or a prosecutor.

You forgot to mention Recto, Pangilinan the Cayetano siblings...dami pa sila.
Am not so sure yet but something’s fishy here.

Well, just subpoena the bank's records. The bank is liable no matter what, whether it is fake or not. Someone paid the bank to lie or perhaps to provide prosecutors a copy with no signature. Is there a videocam in ever nook and wall of the bank? I smell a rat.. you can not call a copy of the bank fake especially if the document is a duplicate. Only the signature is missing. That is not a fake document.

Drilon is biased, ever since.

Well, if there are signatures on the original and there aren't signatures on the copy, then it's not a true copy at all. How can a photocopy machine not copy something that was there to begin with? And how about the bank president saying that they have a SIMILAR form, but not the exact same form? How can they have a "copy" of a form that doesn't exist? In the words of the prosecution's own witness, the form is a fake.

Kahit na sino’ng manood ng impeachment trial, kapag tinanong mo sila tungkol kay Sen Drilon, ang magiging kasagutan ay 'Kitang-kita at halatang-halata naman ang pagiging biased niya.' Unless of course, teleserye sa ABS-CBN pala ang pinapanood nila at hindi ang impeachment trial. I used to admire Sen Drilon pero simula noong kinasuhan niya si Sen. Enrile ng kasong Rebellion with Complex Murder, para lamang mapagbigyan ang Pangulo na humirang sa kanya bilang Justice Secretary, nawala ang paggalang ko sa kanya. Imagine, Justice Secretary ka tapos ang kasong isasampa mo sa isang tao ay isang kasong galing sa iyong guni-guni.

Why can't you people understand what the senator was doing? He was merely trying to find out the truth and with what the prosecution has been doing, there is no chance of finding out what really is the truth. If the CJ has got nothing to hide, then he has nothing to be afraid of if the senators are asking questions. Beside, as judge, the senators can propound questions on any matter involved in the impeachment case.
Need we ask?
PSBANK MANAGER SAYS
RECORDS FAKE! CORONA
DELMAR TACLIBON of Bacoor,
Only a competent expert can say so with authority. Senator Jinggoy Estrada opined otherwise in yesterday's hearing.

What is actually fake is the annex docs attached to the request by the prosecutors for the subpoena of CJ’s bank accounts, not the docs given by the PSBank.
A mistrial is possible. All will be happy. When one is convicted, just like in a game of bowling when the first hits with the ball, the rest will be exposed. 30
