...This case involves P144 billion in DAP funds, how can we forego this?" Colmenares said. "These facts are more than enough to pass the test in sufficiency in substance, and we should ask President Aquino to answer."
Following this, Colmenares shot back at Evardone: "Ikaw ba sinabihan ka naming balimbing ka noong lumipat ka mula sa pagiging ally ni GMA kay Aquino?"
