MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – A Congressional Blue Ribbon Committee has issued a subpoena to Maria Ressa to testify in its continuing investigation into the January 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The subpoena was issued after the Nobel Laureate, CEO of Rappler and convicted criminal warned of a repeat of the attack on the U.S. Capitol if what she describes as disinformation is not stopped in the light of the coming Philippine elections.
In its summons, the committee said to Ressa: ”It appears you have some classified information that we are not aware of that will put our American lawmakers at harms way. It is important that we put a stop to this sinister plan to launch a second attack on the Capitol.”
The U.S. Congress has sent a diplomatic note to the Philippine government and the Court of Appeals to allow Ressa to travel to Washington, D.,C. to face the lawmakers.
This is a developing story.
