Must Watch: Gordon wants Trillanes expelled from Senate

Senator Richard Gordon on Wednesday said he wants Senator Antonio Trillanes IV expelled from the Senate, just days after filing an ethics complaint against the former mutineer.
“I don’t think he belongs in the Senate. His behavior is really out of line,” he told ANC’s Headstart.
Gordon was asked in the interview if he believes Trillanes has to be expelled from their chamber.
He replied: “I think so. You don’t call people names. You don’t insult your teammates.”
“There are rules. He doesn’t know his rules, that’s why he goes up to the deep end,” he said.
“When that happens, what do you have? A mob. You cannot have a mob in the Senate. People are expected to act in a certain way,” he added.

Gordon said the Senate has to act on the complaint and not put it on the backburner simply because it was against one of their colleagues.


“The way things are in this country, sabi ko nga sa mga kasama ko, pag pinabayaan niyo yan, pareho tayo ng pulis—hindi natin maso-solve dahil magka-baro tayo; kasama natin yan, wag nating gawin yan,” he said.

“We have to (act on it quickly) if we’re going to have self-respect. If they don’t want to suspend him, I cannot force my friends to do that. I made a speech the other day before the majority, nag-meeting kami about it…I just want to state the reasons why I have to do it.”



The Senate morals panel has consented to continue with Gordon's dissension, with its administrator, Majority Leader Vicente Sotto III, cautioning hostile dialect articulated even in media was secured by strict parliamentary standards.

In his grumbling, Gordon blamed Trilllanes for submitting "nonstop, unabated, unparliamentary acts, dialect and lead", which "is making harm the Senate and to the general population."

The two senators exchanged barbs during the Gordon-led Blue Ribbon Committee hearing on the P6.4-billion drugs shipment from China that slipped past the Bureau of Customs
