Daza, Erice slam Sereno impeacher for asking Lagman to resign: ‘Pure hogwash, ‘a nincompoop’

Two Magnificent 7 lawmakers could not be bothered to respond to impeachment complainant Larry Gadon’s call on Albay first-district Rep. Edcel Lagman to resign for “lawyering” for Supreme Court Chief Justice Maria Lourdes Sereno.

Asked to react to Gadon’s statement that Lagman should quit his post, Northern Samar first-district Rep. Raul Daza issued a blunt one-liner.

“Hogwash – pure, simple and unadulterated!” he said.

Caloocan City second-district Rep. Edgar Erice followed up with a one-liner of his own.

“Let’s not waste our time on a nincompoop,” he said.

Lagman has frequently criticized Gadon and questioned the actions of the House committee on justice in the impeachment proceeding against Sereno. As a result, he, along with other nonmembers of the panel, has been deprived of the right to participate in the hearings.
