Nobel Laureate Maria Ressa Receives A Subpoena From U.S. Congress!

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.

Comelec Commissioner Rowena Guanzon Tests Positive For Zoomicron

MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – Commission on Elections (Comelec) Commissioner Rowena Guanzon tweeted that she had a fever, just hours after she presided over a preliminary hearing on two disqualification petitions filed against former Senator and presidential aspirant Bongbong Marcos.

This prompted the feisty Commissioner (a.k.a. shunga) to submit to a Covid-19 RT-PCR test.

The test came back positive!

Comelec Spokesperson James Jimenez told The Adobo Chronicles that Guanzon may have been exposed to the zoomicron virus after she had a fit when Marcos failed to appear — not even by zoom — at Friday’s hearing.

Guanzon demanded that Marcos’ counsel produce a medical certificate to justify the former Senators’ no-show.

It wasn’t clear whether Guanzon will be able to resume the disqualification hearing on Monday due to her condition. She will then have to produce a medical certificate if the hearing must be postponed.

What goes around comes around. Even zoomicron.
