Lewis, a known supporter of Vice President Leni Robredo and financier of Liberal Party standard-bearer Mar Roxas released her statement regarding the #LeniLeaks.
The 'leaked emails' from Yahoo! group was called Global Filipino Diaspora Council.
In her statement, Nicolas-Lewis said:
"First: No plot to oust Duterte. Resign Duterte Movement is based on President Duterte's own words that he would resign if drugs are still rampant six month(s) after his inauguration."
"Second, Global Filipino Diaspora Council is a Public Site. If there is a conspiracy, would it be discussed in a public page?" she added.
"Dissent is NOT equivalent to a plot or conspiracy."
"In a democracy, opinions of varying shades, either praise or criticism, are a staple ingredient of a vibrant democracy," she said. "Since when has criticism become an element of sedition?"
Meanwhile, Communications Sec. Martin Andanar on Sunday said that Malacañang will investigate the #LeniLeaks issue and Duterte is also aware about it.
