Jinggoy mocks De Lima’s pleas to join Senate: Kung kami ni Bong, Enrile di pinayagan, ikaw pa!
Senator Leila De Lima appealed to the Senate to allow her to attend sessions and hearings so her vote and voice may count, but former Senator Jinggoy Estrada merely scoffed at the detained senator’s please.

“Hindi ako pinayagan na makadalo sa huling araw ng sesyon ng Senado upang magpaalam sa aking mga kababayan at kasamahan sa Senado. Sa tingin mo ba papayagan ka ng korte na makadalo sa mga session ng Senado? Ano akala mo sa sarili mo? Maraming nagmamahal sa iyo? Marami kang taga-suporta? Nagkakamali ka!”
Estrada said citing that he had attempted to appeal the same conditions before, but was not granted.
“In fact, they don’t even need your vote! You should know that! You’re supposed to be a topnotch lawyer, right?” he added.
Senators who are part of the Liberal Party (LP) are also lobbying for the inclusion of De Lima during Senate sessions, but Estrada reminded them that former Senators Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr. and Juan Ponce Enrile was not allowed to do so when they were detained in the past.
“They can easily muster a quorum with or without us (three), eh ikaw pa? Nag-iisa ka lang?” Estrada said.
“Just an unsolicited advice to you Madam Leila, I don’t think you should push through with your plan of filing a motion before the court for you to attend the Senate sessions. That will prove to be an exercise in futility,” he added.
The former senator pointed out that the Senate would be able to continue its functions without her as it already did in the past when other senators were also detained.
“Ang gawin mo na lang, magdasal ka para sa ating Presidente at para sa ating bansa dahil kung magiging matagumpay si Pangulong Duterte sa kanyang pamamalakad sa ating bansa, magiging matagumpay din ang bawa’t Pilipino. Salamat po,” he said.
