House Justice Committee chair Rep. Reynaldo Umali (upper photo, right) emphasizes that impeachment is an extra-ordinary power of the House and that the sooner the committee is allowed to finish its job of determining if there’s probable cause to indict Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno or not, the better for all.
Umali called on all, especially the lawyers of Sereno, to respect the impeachment process and to not issue statements that tend to demean the committee or the process. The committee has reprimanded two lawyers of Sereno for calling the committee hearing as a “dog-and pony” show.
