What seemed to be a legal argument at the Senate from the two senators Antonio Trillanes and Miguel Zubiri, it turned out to be these lawmakers talking trash to one another that nearly broke into a fistfight. This is what News 5 video recording showed in social media on Tuesday, January 17, 2017.
The incident started when Trillanes accused Zubiri and Senator Dick Gordon of whitewashing the Bureau of Immigration bribery investigation.
Senator Migs Zubiri then made with a privilege speech, denying Trillanes’s accusations.
The heated argument came into a suspension. The two then confront each other, Zubiri trying to get rid off the mic in the podium, as Senators Pacquiao, Recto and Aquino pacify the squabble between the Trillanes and Zubiri.
