Proposed articles of impeachment against “vice president” Leni Robredo #LeniLeaks

Assuming for argument’s sake that Leni Robredo actually is the duly-elected vice president of the Philippines, there are possible grounds for lodging an impeachment complaint against her just six months into the new administration.

* * *

Article 1.0: Conspiring to disrupt public order by way of tacit tolerance of agents mounting efforts to incite sedition.

There is something really wrong with the notion of the presumptive Vice President of the Philippines being a party to groups and communities directly engaged in the planning and instigation of activities meant to destabilise and, eventually, overthrow the government of President Rodrigo Duterte. The standard excuse for such belligerence on the part of the presumptive VP is that Robredo is a member of the opposition party and that, in the Philippines, vice presidents are elected separately.

But then, there are principles that should trump partisan affiliations. Duterte, after all, is the current head of both state and government. Robredo is a member of that government first and a member of the Liberal Party a distant second. Taking that perspective, one can argue that Robredo’s belligerence constitutes an outrage that must not be tolerated.

Article 2.0: Behaviour unbecoming of a top executive of the Philippine Government.

The least one would expect of an official who is a potential president is an ability to communicate effectively with a mass audience. Unfortunately, Leni Robredo has so far proven to be inept in both of the Philippines’ two official languages — English and Tagalog. Evidence of this is in her inability to string together a sentence in either one.

Taglish may be cute — even effective — in the right hands. Robredo, however, only manages to combine her annoying brand of colegiala Taglish with an abject lack of underlying substance in the messages she conveys with it and deliver cringe on a national scale. Imagine a President Robredo commuicating in that manner with the Vladimir Putins of this world. Certainly not an ingredient that would go into cooking the Philippines’ prouder moments.

Article 3.0: Acting and dispensing of duties in line with the interests and agendas of foreign agents.

Controversy has always surrounded the legitimacy of Robredo’s claim to public office. There is the case against her still pending with regard to allegations that her campaign for a Congress seat in 2013 was funded by Filipino-Americans and coursed through her pal New York billionaire Loida Nicolas-Lewis.

That this matter has since remained unresolved makes her more recent campaign for the vice presidency just as suspect. Indeed, it is consistent with the tender loving care Robredo continues to attract from her moneyed fans in the Filipino-American community. The vast sums involved in propping up her candidacy and that of her sidekick Mar Roxas boggle the mind. She was reportedly one of the biggest spenders on ads in the 2016 elections. The “creative” sources of that funding was something she tried to explain in her characteristically awkward style of Taglish…

“Marami. Napakarami. Hindi lang sa pamilya, pero napakarami. Siguro, naririnig n’yo naman, napakaraming fundraising ngayon para sa akin,” Robredo replied.

“Very creative nga ‘yung aking mga volunteer. Kung anu-ano ‘yung naiisipan. ‘Yung fundraising dinner na for me, siguro mahigit lima at malaki talaga ‘yung nakukuha sa mga fundraising dinners,“ she added.

Robredo went on to enumerate other fundraising activities led by her supporters for her.

“Meron kaming Bike for Leni. Merong ice cream flavor na ipinangalan sa akin at ‘yung proceeds, para sa kampanya. Maraming nagpapa-imprenta ng sariling campaign collaterals for me. Merong mga Lugawan for Leni. Kahit anong maisipan, talagang sobrang daming tumutulong,” Robredo explained.

The hundreds of millions of pesos required to sustain hers and Roxas’s desperate campaign could not, however, have come from lugaw stands and quaint volunteer stunts.

There many other grounds for impeachment applicable to the sorry “vice presidency” of Leni Robredo. Perhaps treat this as a living document that we could update (or issue new editions around) as 2017 unfolds.

we have to incorporate first your proposal in a constitutional amendment for Robredo to be impeached as VP. Otherwise, suntok sa buwan.

Doing an Al Qaida, Taliban or Tamil or Uighur act of patriotism is more realistic.

But I doubt if there is anybody reading your column or a DU30 supporter would do it. The great majority of political geniuses is social media are all talk with no

It’s funny how you criticize VP Leni over how she speaks and yet say nothing about all the swearing, rude behavior and inconsistencies of our president’s speeches. In fact, I’ve seen nothing in your blog criticizing any of his faults. His cursing and insults show that it is he who is unbecoming of a leader. I can’t believe how many posts on this blog exist solely to attack Leni and push forth baseless conspiracy theories. FDI inflows have dropped, the peso has dropped and even perception of safety our country has dropped because of all the killings. I used to… Read more »
Just recount the votes for the Vice President. Leni “The Bobo” Robredo will be gone. The COMELEC Commissioner was involved in the 2016 electoral fraud, thru the SMARTMAGIC and HOCUS PCOS. The COMELEC Commissioner is the relative of Aquino… Leni Robredo is the puppet of the Aquino Cojuanggco political axis. They want their Hacienda Luisita back…they want their power back. The illegal Shabu Drug business of Aquino/Mar Roxas/ Leila de Lima Drug cartel is being investigated. Many drug dealers and drug traffickers lost, their means of livelihood. Many were murdered. They want their business back… They want a weak President;… Read more »

looks like de lima is asking the yellows to back her up. the question is, will the yellows abandon her? she’s hallucinating somebody will kill her?


Go pro-marcos loyalists and martial law denialists.

Pro-Marcos Propaganda is hip for its own good.

Pro-Marcos Loyalists want Marcos and Cronies to return in malacanang and return the old days of Martial Law.


Problem with LP, is that:
1. By demonizing anybody or anything not-LP, they promote themselves as the only viable solution to the country’s ills;
2. By primarily serving the moneyed-elite & oligarchy, they discourage new industries outside their monopolies, thereby killing the spirit of competition which would lower the cost of living even while their services deteriorate. This also discourages new ideas & ways of thinking.

Because they listen only to their own LP yes-crowd, they fail to realize that no amount of Leni’s or Mar’s pa-pogi approaches would be good-enough substitute for strong leadership with real substance & genuine passion like Du30’s.

All this “vice president” could say are vague and dodgy statements. Cautious much? It would’ve been effortless for her to come clean if indeed she had no part in the plot. Where’s the lawyer in this person? . Shouldn’t or doesn’t her staff confer with her about their communication and PR strategy? If not, then how terribly lame of them. But then, what could she really say to save herself out of it. After the investigation, the thing will speak for itself. Also, with how she responds to the electoral fraud allegation. She said it’s “baseless”.. Is this how a… Read more »

I’d impeach her for the simple fact that she is a complete BIMBO!

salagintong bukid

yeah! we want martial law and death penalty back ‘cuz it’s good for the people, bad for the criminals.


Also misappropriating government funds. In her tour overseas and around the country, with no clear objective as to how it’ll help ease the burden of those she’s “sympathizing” since she’s working with… who is she working with again? – where is she getting all her (and her whole entourage) fund?

salagintong bukid

in her eyes only tells she cannot be trusted.

Sometimes I wonder if the person behind Leni Robredo’s PR strategy is her biggest campaign donor Kris Aquino. Robredo’s style is very showbiz, very “The Buzz”: She makes up her own issue, then she goes around answering it. No matter how stupid it is. This Vin D’Honneur thing was started yesterday by Robredo’s own office when they issued a statement that she was disinvited. Now, Robredo is going around giving interviews saying “ayaw ko na palakihin”. But at the same time, she’s the one going on and on about how badly she was treated, even if no one’s asking. Just… Read more »

When a plutocracy is disguised as a democracy, the system is beyond corrupt.

OMG. True ka-cheapan nga, this product of Praise Release from Day 1! I knew it, the moment I first saw that contrived waiting-for-the-bus pose. Same PR machinery as the lost and loser LP candidate.


VP Leni and the rest of LP senate & congressmen will be impeach later this year! Read this related article below to tell us why:

“Taglish is cute?” Taglish is cute? Taglish is cute only if you’re under 16 years old. Leni Robredo is over 50 years old. She’s a fricking lola! And yet she insists on acting like a schoolgirl who only got her period yesterday. The video she sent to the UN was really creepy. She was like a psychopath, smiling and batting her eyelashes and making pa-cute-cute gestures with her lips while talking about thousands of people dying. Umeffort pa ng todo para magbihis at magmakeup. To talk about summary killings! She had no idea what she was saying. She was just… Read more »
