Chief Justice Renato Corona made history today. He is the first Supreme Court Judge to get impeached.
The early days of the impeachment trial against Supreme Court Justice Renato Corona never took my interest. I thought it was just a waste of country’s money especially when China threatened our claim on the Scarborough Shoal or Panatag Shoal. Senator Miriam Defensor-Santiago was the only one who made me pause and check momentarily of the goings-on the said trial. However, the trial’s last few days somehow made me wonder if the Chief Judge can actually get out of the tangle he got into. His unapologetic stance when he took the stand made me really believe that he should be impeached. Apparently, the majority of the Senate thought the same.
