This is pure nonsense and this is the nth time Secretary Aguirre has come up with baseless accusations linking the Liberal Party to destabilization efforts. During our Senate briefing on the situation in Marawi we asked Sec Lorenzana and Esperon point blank if they had intelligence information linking LP or the opposition to the Marawi incident and both denied having any such information. Even DTI Sec. Mon Lopez went on record to say that Sen. Aquino was in Marawi for a DTI GoNegosyo event. That makes three Cabinet Secretaries refuting Aguirre’s unfounded claims.

Every false accusation Aguirre makes against the LP results in further damage to his credibility. It is another attempt at deflecting the issue from the unresolved scandals facing his office.
