Ex-PDEA agent Jonathan Morales at Sen. Jinggoy Estrada, nagkainitan sa senado

Senator Jinggoy Estrada and former agent Jonathan Morales had a heated exchange after they questioned each other’s credibility during the Senate hearing on the PDEA’s leaked documents.

Estrada questioned Morales’ credibility to testify as he was facing several charges in the past.

After Morales presented CCTV footage related to the PDEA leaked documents, Estrada questioned if the media presented by the agent was legitimate as he had a history of releasing alleged false statements.

“Mr. Chair, how can we be sure if the video that is going to be presented before the committee is totally unedited? Knowing this person has a lot of records,”

As a response, Morales compared himself to Estrada, saying that he was only facing charges while the lawmaker was already convicted.

“Your honor, ay parang hindi naman po maganda ‘yung sinasabi ni Senator Jinggoy Estrada patungkol sa’kin. Para namang ako talaga ang hinuhusgahan eh ako’y may kaso pa lang at hindi pa napapatunayan sa hukuman,” he stated.

“Hindi kagaya po ang ating butihing senador eh na-convict na po; ay ‘wag naman po ganun,” he added.

Estrada quickly made a response and asked Morales to mind his own business.

“Alam mo Mr. Morales huwag mo pakikialaman ‘yung kaso ko. Problema ko ‘yun. ‘Yung kaso mo ang ayusin mo, ha?” he stated.

To ease the tension, Sen. Ronald “Bato” dela Rosa who led the investigation asked Morales to respect Estrada as he was an elected senator.
